The president is in China now after visiting Japan and Singapore as he continues his Asian trip. President Obama met with China’s President Hu Jintao today and are expected to continue talks on a host of fronts from trade to security. Hopefully it will be a fruitful visit as China has become a very important trading partner to America and is a major power in the world. Issues such as human rights, censorship, Tibet, and North Korea will obviously be discussed also.
