And what better way to honor Trump than with this dinner menu, shared by Xiaomi founder Lei Jun?

Dishes included a coconut-flavored chicken soup, seafood chowder, kung pao chicken (classic), stewed beef steak (well done?) in a tomato sauce, braised vegetables in premium broth and grouper fillets in hot chili oil. For dessert there were pastries, fruits and ice cream, and the wine list featured the FINEST beverage known to mankind: Great Wall Wine, from good ol' Hebei province

Yao Ming was there too.

During the dinner, guests were shown the video of Trump's granddaughter Arabella Kushner singing and reciting poems in Chinese. (Looks like those USD75,000 Chinese lessons really paid off).

They were also treated to a slideshow of photos from the trip. Hope they chose good background music!

That's Beijing is unable to confirm if there is any more baijiu left after last night's dinner.

And then just like that, Trump was boarding Air Force One this morning en route to Vietnam.
