On Thursday morning (local time) in Beijing, President Trump repeated something he has told rallies across the U.S.: China is taking advantage of us, and I don't blame them for it.

Trump made remarks to that effect both in an event with business leaders and a bilateral meeting with Xi and other senior Chinese officials. Trump ended the latter event with an ambitious prediction: "... I look forward to many years of success and friendship, working together to solve not only our problems but world problems, and problems of great danger and security. I believe we can solve almost all of them and probably all of them."
