US President Donald Trump said he would have a “very, very great relationship” with China during a dinner with Chinese President Xi Jinping on Thursday.

"I think long term we're going to have a very, very great relationship and I look very much forward to it," Trump said.

Xi and his wife, Peng Liyuan, joined Trump and his wife, Melania, for a banquet at Mar-a-Lago.

The two leaders were expected to have more detailed discussions about trade and foreign policy issues on Friday local time, concluding their summit with a working lunch.

The Chinese president arrived in the US earlier in the day and was greeted by Secretary of State Rex Tillerson.
