Once a symbol of promising US-China ties, Iowa house Xi Jinping stayed in 1985 now empty

As a Hebei provincial official back in 1985, Chinese President Xi Jinping visited the US state of Iowa and did a homestay in the small town of Muscatine. The house where he lived was later renamed the Sino-US Friendship House and for a time served as a symbol of promising US-China ties. But much has changed in recent years to reshape the relationship between Washington and Beijing. Now the house has been left empty and neglected. Local people have lost their enthusiasm about Xi Jinping, who some say "doesn't seem like the same person" as the Communist Party official who visited years ago.
