GREATEST KOWTOW EVER!:

In China, Trump Places His Bets on Flattering Xi Jinping (MARK LANDLER, JULIE HIRSCHFELD DAVIS and JANE PERLEZ, NOV. 9, 2017, NY Times)

Mr. Trump's warm words, on a state visit to China replete with ceremony but short of tangible results, showed a president doubling down on his gamble that by cultivating a personal connection with Mr. Xi, he can push the Chinese leader to take meaningful steps on North Korea and trade.

In public, Mr. Trump projected an air of deference to China that was almost unheard-of for a visiting American president. Far from attacking Mr. Xi on trade, Mr. Trump saluted him for leading a country that he said had left the United States "so far behind." He said he could not blame the Chinese for taking advantage of weak American trade policy.
