Subject: Travel Pool 9: Xi bilat
Pool just left a quick spray at the top of the POTUS-Xi bilat. Full highlights TK.
Highlight: referring to the election of Donald Trump, though he didn't mention him by name, Xi said: "We meet at a hinge moment in the China-U.S. relationship. I hope the two sides will work together to focus on cooperation, manage our differences, and make sure there is a smooth transition in the relationship and that it will continue to grow going forward."
POTUS spoke first, noting it was his 9th meeting with Xi and summarizing the areas of collaboration. He said he also expected to discuss areas of disagreement.
