Chinese market is indispensable for the US if it pursues job creation and economic growth, period!

That is why while employing harsh rhetoric, US President Donald Trump used his attractive daughters to win goodwill among Chinese people and conducted friendly talks with China in secret.

He soon was able to have friendly phone call with Chinese President Xi Jinping about what he needs from China for his pursuit of job creation and economic growth in the US.

That is soon followed by an invitation of China’s top diplomat Yang Jiechi to visit the US for talks about essential issues for cooperation between the US and China.

SCMP says in its report “China’s top diplomat on two-day mission to US” today:

China’s top diplomat, Yang Jiechi, will start a two-day trip to the United States on Monday, according to state media.

State Councillor Yang was making the trip at the invitation of the US government and would discuss issues of mutual concern with senior American officials, Xinhua quoted foreign ministry spokesman Lu Kang as saying on Sunday.

That is much sooner than the beginning of the thaw of US-China relations after Mao’s ping-pong diplomacy.

Daughters diplomacy works well.

  1. Simon says:

    Trump was only allowed yo speak with Xi after the former supported the One China Policy which is the core reason for dialogue between the two countries.


  2. Steve says:

    How about this — On March 24, 2014, Not only daughters, but Michelle Obama, 2 daughters and grandmother tag along to visit China, with an invitation by China’s first lady Peng LiYuan. This is incredible women power diplomacy involving the wives of both Presidents, daughter and grandma – by far superior to Trump daughters diplomacy.

    And how well did government diplomacy worked.? On September 4, 2016, President Obama was deliberately snubbed at the Hangzhou airport before the start of the G20 meeting. Barack Obama was forced to exit from the ‘Ass’ of his own Airforce One.

    What’s next.? Sons diplomacy before WW111 starts.? We have to wait till the next President with sons.
