China Grants President Trump an Honor no Foreign Leader Has Ever Received [PHOTOS]

Despite what some people think about President Trump, the truth is he is doing things his way and most of the times it works out in his favor.


Even though he constantly mocked China during his presidential campaign 2016 and hasn’t been friendlier to the country since entering the White House, President Trump just became the first foreign leader to have dinner in the Forbidden City, a celebrated royal district which is closed off to the resto of the world since the founding of the People’s Republic of China.

One historian during a CNN appearance talked about the unusual invitation for Trump and First Lady Melania, who arrived in Beijing on Wednesday, saying it was a power move by the Chinese government.

“The Chinese government know who they’re dealing with,” Jeremiah Jenne, who lives in Beijing, stated. “It’s another in a long line of fairly shrewd moves by the Chinese government and something [Trump is] going to be very impressed with.”

He continued:

“What was once known as the ‘palace of blood and tears’ is now being used for a state visit. This is an example of how the narrative [within China] has shifted, particularly in the last 25 years, it’s no longer about emphasizing class revolution. In recent years, it’s been much greater emphasis on the glories of Chinese civilization.”

They are supposed to tour the Forbidden City along with Chinese President Xi Jinping and his wife, Peng Liyuan, before having a dinner in the place that once accommodated Chinese emperors and their families for some 500 years.

A professor of government and politics at George Mason University, Ming Wan, stated for CNN the Chinese government will “give Trump an exceptional reception, essentially they’ll try to make Trump happy — that will work to China’s advantage.”

“[Xi’s] going to treat Trump almost like an emperor,” he added.

Trump’s unique visit to the ancient territory comes right after the White House condemned communism with a statement honoring the National Day for the Victims of Communism.

Communism has “systematically robbed innocent people of their God-given rights of free worship, freedom of association, and countless other rights we hold sacrosanct,” one part of the statement read.

    It is sad to see that foreigners in the countries he visits, treat him better then a lot of Americans do. Why can’t they realize that he represents America overseas? Instead, all these Americans try to tear him down.

    Fabulous display of rolling out the Red Carpet for our President and First Lady! Very impressive, and a great step forward for our President and First Lady who represented America so well as none of the other past Presidents were able to do, partly because the country was a communist country then I imagine. The soldiers marching in perfect unison was a magnificent display and the children were so excited to see our President and First Lady too. China is no longer a communist country, so that makes it possible for them to finally have many freedoms they’ve never had before and can relate better with America now too. These are just my feelings, of course, but all said, this looks like a very successful trip for our President and country.
