China president's plane stops in Alaska after Trump visit

Donald Trump

April 7, 2017 ANCHORAGE-Governor Bill Walker today welcomed to Alaska His Excellency Xi Jinping, President of the People's Republic of China and Madame Peng Liyuan, First Lady of the People's Republic of China.

Chinese President Xi Jinping was able to take in views Friday night of the natural beauty that Alaska has to offer.

After meeting with China's President Xi Jinping at Mar-a-Lago, President Trump said that China "will be stepping up" on North Korea.

Walker spokeswoman Grace Jang confirmed that during his visit, President Xi, his wife and his delegation will be staying at the Hotel Captain Cook in downtown Anchorage, the same hotel where President Barack Obama stayed during his visit in the fall of 2015.

"I think this is an extremely valuable opportunity to meet with our largest trade partner face to face", said Chris Hladick, the commissioner of the state's Commerce Department, according to the Associated Press.

The Chinese government informed Walker that Xi would be stopping in Anchorage about a month ago, and requested a meeting, the governor's office said.


The Daily Mail is reporting all three of Ms. Trump's children have begun learning Mandarin, among whom, 5-year-old Arabella Kushner has become a fan-favorite in China. The waters are home to the endangered Beluga whale. Included in that past year was about $130 million of precious metals, which Hladick said was likely gold from the Fairbanks area.

"In the eyes of numerous Chinese people, Alaska is a land that brings a lot of mystery in our minds and it is a place where our people like to go - it's like Shangri-la to us", Xi said through an interpreter.

President Ronald Reagan and Pope John Paul II met in 1984 during refueling stops at the airport in Fairbanks.

According to the reports, both the leaders will spend some private time together before sitting down for dinner in the estate's formal dining room.
