While US President Donald Trump was making his way to Vietnam on Friday following a three-day trip to Beijing, his wife Melania and son-in-law Jared Kushner were taking in Beijing's tourist traps.

Melania kicked off her Friday morning with a visit to the Beijing Zoo, where she was photographed handing out stuffed American eagle toys to kids and checking out pandas.

Meanwhile, Jared was on the other side of town sneaking into Beijing's Silk Market, where he was photographed wearing sunglasses as he perused through the kids toys section.

Perhaps he was buying a present for Arabella as a reward for all that hard work she put into her Chinese lessons?
