President Donald Trump has saluted the “growing friendship” between the United States and China.

Trump and first lady Melania Trump were the guests of honor at a state dinner Thursday at the Great Hall of the People in Beijing.

Trump offered a toast to Chinese President Xi Jinping (shee jihn-peeng), touting bonds “that will only grow stronger and stronger.” 

He then introduced a video of his granddaughter Arabella, the daughter of Ivanka Trump and Jared Kushner, singing a traditional Chinese song in Mandarin.

The dinner capped off two days of pageantry and negotiations between Xi and Trump. At the dinner, neither man made mention of thorny issues like trade and attempts to pressure North Korea to abandon its nuclear weapons program.
