Advisers float Mar-a-lago summit as Trump plots next moves with Xi

Source: Axios

Xi may soon come to Mar-a-Lago. President Trump's advisers have informally discussed holding a summit there next month with Chinese President Xi Jinping to try to end the U.S.-China trade war, according to two administration officials with direct knowledge of the internal discussions.

Both officials, who are not authorized to discuss the deliberations, described Trump's club in Palm Beach, Florida, as the "likely" location for the leaders' next meeting, but stressed that nothing is set. The meeting could come as soon as mid-March, these sources said.

... snip ...

The big picture: Perhaps the darkest cloud of economic uncertainty hanging over the Trump administration is the status of his trade war with China. Global markets are holding their breaths over the fate of hundreds of billions of dollars of trade.

Behind the scenes: Trump's upcoming meeting with Kim Jong-un in Vietnam has complicated logistics for the Xi summit. Trump wanted to meet with Xi before his tariff ceasefire with China ends on March 1, but three sources with direct knowledge said the events couldn’t be planned so close together.

On March 1, Trump must decide whether to ratchet up tariffs from 10% to 25% on some $200 billion worth of Chinese goods. In early December, Trump told Xi he'd bump up those tariffs unless the Chinese showed "progress" on the big structural issues. (Trump hasn't been clear what would satisfy him here.)

2. FUCK NO

Having it at Mar A Lago means that our tax dollars are paid to Trump to use it. It means all the security has to stay there and you'd better believe Trump will charge them rack rate. No "friends and family" rate. He'll rip us off just like he ripped off the inauguration committee.

It has been used many times in the past for these types of meetings.

EVERYTHING about this administration is about enriching Donald Trump.

5. It's tacky to drag world leaders off to his private property. Completely shabby.

Knowing he also charges the taxpayers a ton of money for the use of his property makes it obscene.

8. Yeah, but all those $$$ will go into Trump's pocket

which is more important to him than mere things like, acting for the benefit of his country.

14. More money for the grifter in chief.

I can't believe the nerve of these people. Investigators are crawling through the filth of Trump's emoluments violations as we speak, and the unabashed idiot continues to grift right in front of them, daring them to come after him.

I've reached the very limit of hate and contempt for the Trumps. There's no room for more, yet they continue to stretch the boundaries.

15. Me too.

The gop should have stopped this clan from the start. Once they got their tax break for the wealthy donors, why not clamp down on the Grifter in Chief? He is the worst representative for their party - EVER. Maybe Iwanka should lose all those Chinese patents she was awarded? Why have them, if "her" fashions will be too expensive to import? Of course, she could get even more. Not that SHE knows anything at all about them, you know. Innocent Iwanka, the advisor knows nothing according to her.
