History was made as China rolled out red carpet for POTUS, FLOTUS at its historical Forbidden City which now houses the Palace Museum, the former imperial palace of the Ming and Qing dynasties. (Forgive me.  I can’t help it, I’m impressed.)

The anti-Trump media has been playing down President Donald J. Trump’s trip to Asia which has many highlights, one of which is the significance IMO of the President and First Lady, Melania Trump’s tea, state dinner and tour with China’s President Xi Jinping and his wife Peng Liyuan in China’s Forbidden City located in the heart of Beijing.

Beijing’s Forbidden City was more than just an opulent backdrop for US President Donald Trump’s first day in China.

A few highlights. First the short version.

What do everyday people think of our President? According to the globalist media complex, they hate him.

Propaganda? You decide. As for me, I like that white jacket with the black belt. I also get the feeling that the people in the video aren’t everyday people but that’s okay.

Listening to them speak was far more pleasurable than listening to western media.

P.S.: Remember last year when China made Obama exit the back of the plane?

Unhyphenated American female, born and raised in the Empire State and who like most New Yorkers, in spite of being a registered Democrat, I voted for the candidate, not the party which meant voting often across party lines throughout the years. In 2008, coming to terms once and for all with the fact that Democrats and I had nothing in common, I left the liberal cesspool forever. Of course, I now have a grudge to settle after decades of being lied to and so I blog to right the wrongs and expose the lies.
