Understanding Trump and Xi Ping Pong

Yahoo: Branstad's nomination is expected to reassure the Chinese, who have been wary of Trump's past behavior and comments. Over the past week, Trump has assailed China's trade and currency policies and threatened punitive tariffs on Chinese goods.He also came under fire for accepting a congratulatory phone call last Friday from the president of Taiwan, which is not recognized as a sovereign nation by China. The US cut off official diplomatic relations with Taiwan in 1979 in favor of relations with Beijing.

OK, China folks, here is the deal.  

Trump does not want the grand ceremony of flying over to China and dressing up in silly Chinese pantsuits with the other bureaucrats , he wants to skip that stuff and just do one on ones, in his own jet.
