Xi Jinping asks ex-Starbucks CEO for help with US-China relations

Sounds like Xi Jinping wants to have a Frappuccino with Howard Schultz.

The Chinese president wrote a letter to the former Starbucks CEO asking him to help strengthen the fraying relationship between the US and China.

In the Jan. 6 letter, Xi encouraged Schultz and the coffee company “to continue to play a positive role in advancing China-US economic and trade cooperation and bilateral ties,” China’s state-run Xinhua News Agency reported Thursday.

Xinhua’s report didn’t say whether Xi has written to other American business leaders or what, exactly, he wants Schultz to do.

The letter came two weeks before President-elect Joe Biden’s inauguration. His Democratic administration is expected to work more closely with Beijing on issues such as North Korea while largely maintaining President Trump’s aggressive trade policies.


Xi probably thought of this since Sleepy could use a nice cup of coffee as well.
