President Trump's second day in China kicked off with an elaborate welcome ceremony with Chinese President Xi Jinping at Beijing's Great Hall of the People on Tiananmen Square. After that, it was down to work as Trump took part in bilateral meetings and business events with his Chinese counterpart before taking the stage for a joint press conference that didn't feature any questions from the press. POTUS then met Chinese Premier Li Keqiang, effectively the country's prime minister, and took part in a meet and greet with First Lady Melania Trump at the U.S. embassy. The day ended with a Chinese state dinner.
