The White House has officially announced that it is preparing to welcome the Chinese president Xi Jinping for an official state visit on September 25. His wife, Peng Liyuan, will also be attending dinner at the White House.
Going against suggestions made by Republican presidential candidates Scott Walker and Donald Trump, it appears that the Chinese leader will not be taken to a woodshed and fed double-sized Big Macs, but will instead will enjoy a full state dinner inside the White House.
Xi Jinping’s visit was first announced 7 months ago. He is expected to first stop by Seattle to meet with several US tech leaders. After leaving Washington D.C. he will head to New York City for the U.N. General Assembly on September 28.
