That is one hell of a climb to the top! Fantastic photo, only problem is the dudes in uniform spoiling the shot!

Tibet had its own government before China invaded it in 1950

They really are trying to push for more than just a trade war. I'm glad they visited, but it could have been any time -- this is 100% about timing.

Normally closed off to non Chinese.

A tiny step, but the best thing US did for a long time about Tibet.

trump has zero self respect, this visit displays that. We notice trump has not availed himself to go with this ambassador. To Scared.

I would say in this case anyway, the Chinese government would in no way allow Trump to visit Tibet like the ambassador is doing. To the Chinese that would legitimize Tibet's claims of sovereignty and the Chinese are not going to give him or them that opportunity on the world stage, particularly while the two countries are in a trade war.

To me this is more a sign of China showing a good faith gesture to the US and this is connected, more than people think, to the trade frictions between the countries than anything else.
