CNN also cited a senior White House official as confirming such plan, but the US news organization also quoted the official as saying that "the plan is only tentative at the moment".

Trump's Mar-a-Lago estate is a possible site for the summit, which will be closely watched considering Trump's tough talk on China dating back to the campaign.

Axios first reported on the Xi Jinping visit.

Trump during the transition period between the election and his inauguration accepted a call from Taiwanese President Tsai Ing-wen, which angered China's government.
