China puts on a lavish ceremony for Donald Trump

China put on a lavish welcoming ceremony for the US president, followed by hours of talks and a press conference filled with compliments.

    Donald Trump says he has found common ground with China's leader over the crisis on the Korean Peninsula.

    The US president was welcomed to China in a lavish ceremony, much more lavish than the one given former President Obama.

    After the two leaders talked for several hours, Trump praised President Xi Jinping warmly during the press conference the two leaders had.
