Just before leaving the G20 summit in Hamburg, Germany on Saturday, President Donald Trump held a bilateral meeting with Chinese President Xi Jinping. Following that high-level talk, the White House blasted out a transcript of Trump’s public remarks preceding the meeting, a document that called Xi “President Xi of the Republic of China.

One problem: the “Republic of China” refers to Taiwan. China is referred to as the “People’s Republic of China….

…Xi, striking a more sober note than Trump, said “there is a lot of work needed to be done” on the “sensitive issues [that] remain in the China-U.S. relationship.”

“Differences emerge endlessly,” Xi reported(ly) said.”

Differences such as getting the name of his Country right.

The incompetence of this White house is downright embarrassing…and scary.
