Today is November 8, a date that will henceforth be remembered as either Victory Day or One of the Worst Hangovers of My Adult Life, depending where on the political spectrum you fall.

Leaving South Korea now heading to China. Looking very much forward to meeting and being with President Xi!

The US President’s motorcade was just moments ago spotted rolling through central Beijing, clogging inner-city arteries like so many Trump steaks. Filmmaker Gabriel Clermont just caught the entourage in movement:

Pro tip: if you’re in Beijing, stay outside the 2nd ring road for the next 48 hours or so.
