Chinese government invites Jared and Ivanka for visit
The Chinese Communist Party has invited Jared and Ivanka to visit China. The development was first reported by Bloomberg, and Axios has confirmed with a source familiar with the arrangements.
The source told Axios that "nothing has been set yet," including the timing, the itinerary or the reasoning behind the invitation. Jared and Ivanka — both senior presidential advisors — haven't yet accepted the invitation.
Context: the visit would build on relationship between President Trump and Xi, initially forged over a weekend at Mar-a-Lago. Jared, who has a close working relationship with the Chinese ambassador to the U.S., played a key role in setting up the Mar-a-Lago visit.
