Ivanka Trump's children sing for President Xi Jinping

Ivanka Trump's children sing for President Xi Jinping

"That's the first time I've heard them say that in a bilateral context", said Ross.

"Spouses will be there" said Pottinger, indicating the leaders will be joined Thursday evening by United States first lady and former model Melania Trump and Peng Liyuan - a celebrated folk singer who was once more famous than her husband. It is unclear when the talks will take place.

The meeting in Mar-a-Lago has been largely overshadowed by the US strike on Syria Thursday evening; nonetheless, Trump and Xi appear to be moving the ball forward in their talks.

The Republican president tweeted last week that the United States could no longer tolerate massive trade deficits and job losses and that his meeting with Xi "will be a very hard one". Trump and Xi were in agreement.

President Donald Trump today hailed the tremendous progress made by the U.S. in its relationship with China and said he expects "lots of very potential bad problems to go away" in future.

Tillerson also said that Trump accepted Xi's offer to make a state visit to China in the future.

Noting that the two leaders had positive and productive meetings, Spicer said Trump and Xi agreed to work in concert to expand areas of cooperation while managing differences based on mutual respect. Trump jokingly said he agrees with whatever Xi said.

"Each side also brought a senior delegation that was also able to build relationships for the work ahead", Spicer said. "I believe we will keep developing in a stable way to form friendly relations...for the peace and stability of the world, we will also fulfill our historical responsibility". No date was set for the trip.

The rogue nation has tested nuclear weapons, and the US military has about 28,500 troops stationed in South Korea, whose capital, Seoul, is within the North's artillery range.

Tillerson said Xi told Trump that he "understood that such a response was necessary when people are killing children" and expressed "an appreciation" to Trump for informing him of the number of missiles that were launched and explaining the rationale behind the strike.

Having gotten through the talks without making any major, specific commitments, the Chinese president would seem to have won some ground - or at least some wiggle room - in the Trump talks. "But we understand it creates unique problems for them and challenges and that we would and are prepared to chart our own course if this is something China is just unable to coordinate with us".

But he backed calls for an independent inquiry into a suspected chemical weapons attack on a rebel-held town in northwestern Syria on Tuesday that Trump blamed on the Damascus regime.

The Obama and Trump administrations have relied on Congress' authorization of military force following the September 2001 terror attacks to carry out strikes against terror groups such as Islamic State and al-Qaida.

It was Thursday afternoon, just hours before 59 US cruise missiles would rain down on a Syrian military airfield in response to what Trump had called "a disgrace to humanity".
