ONTARIO - With little fanfare, Chinese President XI Jinping arrived in the U.S. Thursday evening. His flight from Mexico, where he had been meeting with Mexican President Nieto the past three days, landed just after 6 p.m. Jinping and his travelling party quietly exited the airport and headed east to their hotel in Indian Wells.
Anti-China protestors have been gathering since Wednesday near Bob Hope Drive and Ramon Road.. the closest they can get to the Sunnylands Retreat, waching signs and chanting at passers by.
Jinping will meet with President Obama at Sunnylands starting tomorrow evening, following the President's arrival from Los Angeles. Obama will make a lunchtime stop in L.A. for a speaking engagement before continuing to Palm Springs.
