Chinese Vice President Xi Jinping visits Muscatine

The eastern Iowa town of around 20,000 might seem in odd company, but it’s no accident that Iowa is one of the stops on Chinese Vice President Xi Jinping’s U.S. trip this week. Xi visited Muscatine — the same town he visited in 1985 — and Des Moines Wednesday night.
