Yomiuri took up the disclosure by a GOJ source that when hosting a dinner for Prime Minister Abe in Beijing on Friday, Chinese President Xi repeatedly brought up President Trump as a topic of discussion. The paper conjectured that this reflects Xi’s strong interest in ascertaining the U.S. leader’s true intentions amid China’s escalated friction with the Trump administration. In response to the Chinese leader’s comment that “President Trump has apparently said nice things about me,” Abe said, “Yes, indeed. The President has high regard for you…. The U.S. and China should deepen dialogue.”
