President Donald Trump thanked Chinese President Xi Jinping by tweet on Wednesday for his hospitality in Beijing, using his favorite communications platform for the first time in a nation that generally denies Western social media to its own people.

“On behalf of @FLOTUS Melania and I, THANK YOU for an unforgettable afternoon and evening at the Forbidden City in Beijing, President Xi and Madame Peng Liyuan. We are looking forward to rejoining you tomorrow morning,” Trump tweeted.
