No More Valentines for China’s Xi From Bad Cop Congress

Chinese Vice President Xi Jinping, in line to become the country’s top leader next year, met congressional leaders amid criticism of China’s record on human rights, trade and currency issues.

Xi’s third day in Washington included sessions with Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid and his Republican counterpart Mitch McConnell, and with House Speaker John Boehner and House Majority Leader Eric Cantor, who raised questions on human rights and religious freedom and criticized intellectual property protections.
