Sanders told reporters traveling with Trump in Asia that it's still possible the two could have a less formal encounter on the sidelines of the summit in Vietnam or a later gathering in the Philippines.

U.S. President Donald Trump and first lady Melania arrive for the state dinner with China's President Xi Jinping and China's first lady Peng Liyuan at the Great Hall of the People in Beijing, China, November 9, 2017. Xi's speech glossed over regional unease over China's rising clout while pledging free trade and stability.

"China will not close its doors" and will open them "even wider", he said, pledging that foreign companies in China, including American ones, would find the market "more open, more transparent and more orderly".

Trump's speech cataloged the ills of globalization, saying too many countries had flouted the rules for years with impunity, harming American workers and US companies.

"We are not going to let the United States be taken advantage of anymore".

The Trumps walked alongside Xi and his wife through the historic site and admired artifacts from centuries' past. Openness brings progress while self-seclusion leaves one behind. Earlier this year, Xi launched his push-back against protectionism in a speech to billionaires and government officials gathered at the World Economic Forum in Davos, Switzerland. Previous U.S. administrations have hailed market-opening promises only to be left disappointed.

A senior White House official said China is doing "much more than it has ever done in the past" but it could try harder to curb trade at the border with North Korea.

Trump had made narrowing the multibillion-dollar USA trade deficit with China a priority for his administration.

As the U.S. retreats behind "economic nationalism", China will take a stride forward, said Ian Bremmer of the political consultancy Eurasia.

Xi also pushed China's Belt and Road Initiative as the basis for "interconnected development for common prosperity".

The other two slots will be filled Saturday with north African countries Tunisia and Morocco needing draws to qualify. The 25-year-old winger set up West Ham striker Diafra Sakho to put Lions of Teranga in the lead after 12 minutes.

As Trump visits the region, there is a deep anxiety over whether he looking away.

Two have overflown Japan, which Trump visited at the start of his Asian tour, and Pyongyang says it can mount a nuclear warhead on a rocket to bring the United States mainland within range. "But while we lowered market barriers, other countries didn't open their markets to us. For too long and in too many places, the opposite has happened".

President Donald Trump says the whole world is being lifted by America's economic renewal. "We don't dream of domination", Trump said. "I think we have to give it a couple of months, a few months, and then see what adjustments we might need to make".

However, the deals Trump often announces are not really new, said Dollar of the Brookings Institution. Some analysts believe that China has partially accepted the U.S. request for additional sanctions against North Korea and that the United States has partially recognized China's role as a "diplomatic bridge" to Pyongyang.

"It is not a very well thought-out strategy".

"He's laying it on thick to put Xi in a good mood because he will have unpleasant things to tell him", said Jean-Pierre Cabestan, China politics specialist at Hong Kong Baptist University.

Xi called on the region to make "continuous progress" towards what would be known as the Free Trade Area of the Asia-Pacific and to quickly complete negotiations on a 16-nation Asia trade pact known as the RCEP.

Firstly, after this trip, Trump will realise that Chinese President Xi Jinping, despite his calm and humble demeanour, is the world's most powerful leader at the moment.

The remaining 11 countries in the TPP, from Japan to Canada, are trying to resurrect the pact without the USA, and their leaders are meeting in Vietnam this afternoon on a potential agreement on how to salvage it.
