Trump says he and Xi can solve 'probably all' world problems

BEIJING – President Donald Trump emerged from a lengthy meeting with Chinese President Xi Jinping on Thursday to declare that he believed he and Xi together can solve "probably all" the world's problems.

 

"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," Trump said between meetings at the Great Hall of the People. "I believe we can solve almost all of them, and probably all of them."

 

Trump and Xi were discussing a series of thorny issues during Trump's second day in China, including China's willingness to put the squeeze on North Korea over its nuclear weapons program, and the US-China trade relationship.
