US Congress Rep Vicky Hartzler revealed that Chinese President Xi Jinping's only daughter Xi Mingze is living in America. Hartzler revealed this while she was introducing the "Protecting Higher Education from the Chinese Communist Party Act."
According to a Chinese current affairs commentator living in the US stated on his YouTube channel on Sunday that Hartzler divulged the fact that the only child of the world's second most powerful leader lives in the US.
Aside from a few basic biographical details, very little is known about the cherished daughter of Chinese President Xi Jinping and his second wife, famous folk singer Peng Liyuan.
The US Senator bill would ban "individuals serving in the National Congress of the Chinese Communist Party and their family members from receiving student or research visas."
Meanwhile, the commentator pointed out that he said in 2019 that Xi's daughter has returned to the US after living in China for 5 years.
Xi Mingze, born on June 27, 1992, studied French at her high school, Hangzhou Foreign Languages School.
She travelled to the US in 2010 to study at Harvard University in Massachusetts under a pseudonym, but it wasn't until 2012 that many people had even heard of her.
The commentator believes that she is still living in the same Cambridge area and is a research student there now.
Earlier, a Chinese man, Niu Tengyu, a website technician, was charged with leaking the personal information of President Xi Jinping's daughter and was sentenced to 14 years in prison.
