Trump in China: US president hails 'great chemistry' with Xi Jinping

Once upon a time, there was a China-bashing US presidential candidate. A year and a day later, Donald J. Trump is feted in Beijing, blaming trade imbalances on his predecessors and only really applying pressure on his hosts over North Korea. How much has Trump changed his tune?

Produced by Charles WENTE, Ivana SCATOLA, Francois PICARD.
