  • President Donald Trump attended a formal dinner with
    Chinese President Xi Jinping at the G20 summit in Buenos Aires,
    Argentina on Saturday.
  • The leaders, flanked by their top officials, were
    served a three course meal that was accompanied with
    Argentinian wines. 

President Donald Trump attended a formal meeting with
Chinese President Xi Jinping at the G20 summit in Buenos Aires,
Argentina on Saturday. 

The formal meeting has been a closely watched event leading
up to the summit, as it could influence US-China trade
relations
. The results of the meeting may ultimately resolve
differences and lower tariffs that affect more than half of all
trade between the US and China.

According to the dinner menu released by the White House,
the sirloin might be a close-enough substitute for well-done
steaks and meatloaf — foods that Trump is reportedly fond
of
.

In their remarks before dinner, Trump and Xi spoke at a
table covered in white plates, white tablecloth, and yellow and
red flowers.

Here’s what was on the menu for the formal
dinner: 

First course: An Argentinian
Chardonnay accompanied a seasonal vegetable salad with basil
mayonnaise dressing and a parmesan emulsion. 

Main course: Grilled sirloin with red
onions, goat ricotta, and dates that was paired with a 2014
Malbec. 

Dessert: Caramel rolled pancakes,
crispy chocolate, and fresh cream.
