CHINA: U.S. President Donald Trump was the first world leader to call Chinese
President Xi Jinping after Xi was officially re-elected general secretary of the
Communist Party, the Global Times reported on Thursday, saying the call
represented a "positive signal for China-U.S. relations." Trump also
congratulated Xi on the successful conclusion of the 19th Communist Party
Congress on Wednesday, the report said. During the call, Trump said he was
