*(Via ABC News) – White House advisers on Monday described First Lady Michelle Obama’s upcoming official trip to China as focused on cultural exchanges and the value of education, not on human rights and divisive issues they say are discussed when her husband speaks with Chinese President Xi Jinping.
“The nature of her visit is really quite different,” said Ben Rhodes, deputy National Security advisor for Strategic Communications, on a conference call with reporters. “What the First Lady really brings is the power of her own story, the power of American values.”
The first lady will tell of her own modest upbringing when she visits schools in Beijing and Chengdu, with a side trip to see the legendary terracotta warriors in the interior city of Xi’an. Teen daughter Malia Obama and her younger sister Sasha will be along during their spring break, as well as their grandmother Marian Robinson.
