Hong Kong (CNN)Donald Trump will receive an honor in Beijing not granted to any US President since the founding of the People's Republic of China: official dinner inside the Forbidden City.
When Trump and his wife Melania land in the Chinese capital Wednesday, they will join President Xi Jinping and his wife, Peng Liyuan, for a tour of the Forbidden City, the historic palace that housed Chinese emperors and their families for almost 500 years.
Trump is expected to dine with Xi inside the Jianfu Palace, although the exact location of the dinner hasn't been confirmed. The building dates back to the eighteenth century and was fully restored in 2005, making it one of the most well-preserved parts of the palace complex.
Wherever he dines in the Forbidden City, Trump will be the first foreign leader to have an official dinner in the palace since the founding of the People's Republic in 1949.

Eat your heart out BO, and BC! All your butt kissing and most favored nation status sell outs didnt earn any respect.
Making America Respected Again.
Donald Trump ordered up a Big Mac and fries and some apple pie : )
Now watch the media switch from “Russia Russia Russia” to “China China China”.
Forbidden City. Rte 2 in Cambridge. Best Spare Ribs ever.
“....b/c they didn’t even care that he was there.”
True wherever this fraud went. They knew what a usurper this Marxist clown was.
LOL. Geez. I hope not.
They didn’t want 0bozo to sully the place with his idiocy.
How true. If you do not respect yourself how can you expect anyone else to respect you? Other cultures unaffected by self-loathing see Obama's behavior in apologizing for the U.S. as shameful, even slightly embarrassing, and not the sign of enlightenment he expected it to be.
Better hope its actually good lol. I remember when we were based in Okinawa drunk as hell and playing cards wed always send one Marine on a chicken Yakisoba run as wed call it. Always chanting you fly I buy. Well one time in our drunken stupor as a Marine was running to get our beloved meal one Marine says you know Ive never seen many chickens on this island. Quickly it was followed up by another saying come to think of it Ive not seen many stray cats or dogs either.
That day I never touched another chicken Yakisoba again
Since Trump apparently has nothing bad to say about China it appears that all the buttering-up is working.
So nice... hope there’s lots of pictures....
In fact this is a huge disrespect to Obama. They didn’t even roll out stairs for AF1 when he landed. Trump gets the royal treatment. Dealing with China like a Boss. They know the US is the preeminent power in the world and for President Trump to treat them as equals or near-equals and to seek their partnership in areas of mutual interest is a great honor.
Striking China/US business deals worth 250 billion leaves little room for complaints.
Granddaughter has a very small but important part to play in this.
