Here’s what The Daily Mail reported:

China’s President Xi Jinping arrived in San Francisco on Tuesday to hold his first face-to-face talks with President Joe Biden in a year.

California Gov. Gavin Newsom, his partner Jennifer Siebel Newsom and Treasury Secretary Janet Yellen greeted the Chinese leader as he exited his airplane.

Earlier Tuesday Newsom greeted Biden when he touched down in San Francisco.

Biden and Xi will sit down Wednesday on the sidelines of the summit of the Asia Pacific Economic Cooperation (APEC) forum at Filoli, a secluded estate along Northern California’s coastal range.

Before Jinping’s visit, Governor Gavin Newsom ordered the streets of California to be cleaned and for its homeless to go elsewhere.

Per Yahoo News:

The APEC summit has descended upon the city, creating an extensive security perimeter around the Moscone event center and prompting the shutdown of multiple city blocks in anticipation of the imminent arrival of nearly two dozen global leaders, including U.S. President Joe Biden, Canadian Prime Minister Justin Trudeau, and China’s President Xi Jinping. There’s also a lineup of tech executives in attendance, including Elon Musk, Marc Benioff, Sam Altman, Satya Nadella, Sundar Pichai, and many more.

APEC, short for Asia-Pacific Economic Cooperation, serves as a stage for fostering trade, investment, and economic development among nations encircling the Pacific Ocean. The group consists of 21 “economies,” including China, Russia, Japan, the U.S., and Australia, representing nearly 40% of the global population and almost half of the world’s trade.

Amidst the star-studded spectacle, tech leaders have been quick to highlight the remarkable cleanliness San Francisco achieved just ahead of the event.

“Does seem crazy that the zombie apocalypse can be cleaned up for an important visitor, but not for those who live there and pay for everything!” Musk tweeted on Monday.
