Obama says 'positive' U.S.-Chinese ties good for U.S.

A "positive, constructive, cooperative" U.S.-Chinese relationship is "good" for the United States, President Barack Obama said Wednesday in a joint news conference with Chinese President Hu Jintao.

Speaking to reporters after a meeting with Hu and business leaders, Obama called for "a spirit of cooperation" and "healthy competition" between the countries.

Obama and Vice President Joe Biden welcomed Hu to the White House in a formal arrival ceremony earlier in the day.

      @Had Enough, Why are you blaming the Mexicans? I'm not a Mexican, Why don't we blame our gov't for not keeping our borders closed to illegal immigrants, and for those gave them jobs under the table. They came here, because they can and get a job. If the Mexicans can find their way to China, I'm sure they will go there too. As long as their homeland still poor and dangerous, they will go to Europe, Canada or USA.

    • Jim Brieske,

      HAD ENOUGH. Since President Obama and his crew place such value on the 12 million illegal alien roaches here, we should sell all 12 million of them to the Chinese. They can transport them back to China on the barges that become empty at our ports after unloading Chinese made products.
      The price for them, $1167.00 a piece. That's 14 trillion dollars.
      Actually we could also go into Mexican and grab several million more to sell. That would give us an additional 3.5 trillion dollars.
