South China Morning Post published this video item, entitled “Once a symbol of promising US-China ties, Iowa house Xi Jinping stayed in 1985 now empty” – below is their description.
As a Hebei provincial official back in 1985, Chinese President Xi Jinping visited Iowa and did a homestay in Muscatine, a small town in the state. The house was renamed the Sino-US Friendship House and was once a symbol of promising US-China ties. But much has changed in recent years, reshaping the relationship between Washington and Beijing. Now the house is left empty and neglected. Locals have lost their enthusiasm towards Xi Jinping who some say ‘doesn’t seem like the same person’ as the Communist Party official who visited years ago.
