Remarks Following a Meeting With President Xi Jinping of China in Palm Beach, Florida

April 07, 2017

President Trump. I just want to say that President Xi and all of his representatives have been really interesting to be with. I think we have made tremendous progress in our relationship with China. My representatives have been meeting one-on-one with their counterparts from China. And it's—I think, truly, progress has been made. We'll be making a lot of additional progress.

The relationship developed by President Xi and myself, I think, is outstanding. We look forward to being together many times in the future. And I believe lots of very potentially bad problems will be going away.

So I just want to thank President Xi for being with us in the United States. It's a tremendous honor for me and all of my representatives to host the President and his representatives. And again, progress has been made.

Thank you very much. Thank you.

Q. Mr. President, what's the end goal with the strikes on Syria?

President Trump. Thank you very much.

President Trump. Well, I agree 100 percent, Mr. President. And thank you very much. And again, a tremendous honor to have you in the United States and at Mar-a-Lago. Thank you very much.

Q. Mr. President, would you consider similar action in North Korea?

NOTE: The President spoke at 11:22 a.m. at the Mar-a-Lago Club.
