Meeting President Xi Jinping, North Korea and trade are the focus of President Trump this week. The BBC's Anthony Zurcher assesses the presidents foray into foreign affairs.
Foreign affairs are in the spotlight this week with President Trump’s own tweet predicting a ‘difficult’ meeting with China’s President Xi. With trade on the agenda, as well as how to deal with North Korea, all eyes will be on the meeting at Trump’s ‘southern White House’ Mar-a-Largo.
To assess the latest foray into foreign affairs by the president, Anthony Zurcher, BBC North America reporter is joined by Susan Glasser, chief international affairs columnist at Politico, Byron York of the Washington Examiner, and the BBC’s Rob Watson.
