China's President Hu Jintao will be on Capitol Hill today meeting with members of congress, but that meeting might not be as friendly as the meeting he had with the President Barack Obama. Last night President Hu was treated to a state dinner at the White House by President Obama and the First Lady. The 225 attendees feasted on an all-American-themed menu.
This morning, President Hu will face congressional leaders, some of whom skipped last night's state dinner and have already openly criticized China's government. Later today President Hu will travel to Chicago where he'll meet with operators of several Chinese-owned businesses.
Yesterday President Obama tried to ease economic concerns by announcing $45 billion in new export deals with the country.
