How do you say "Xi Jinping" in Spanish?

Guadalajara -
Mexican president Enrique Peña Nieto, who is famous/ infamous for his . . . George Bushisms, pulled another one yesterday.

This week he's hosting Chinese president Xi Jinping. The visit is a very public affair, and the two have been busy announcing a wide array of deals designed to enhance financial and commercial ties between the two countries. China is thrilled at the prospect of expanding its Latin markets, and Mexico at the prospect of reselling many items to North America, albeit with different packaging.

In any case, one of the lesser reported side stories of the big event is that the Chinese president got a name change right after he arrived in Mexico City. He now calls himself Juan Yin Juan Yin, and the clip below proves it. Xi Jinping may be Chinese by birth, but he's mexicano de corazón.

Enrique Peña Nieto faces stiff competition from north of the border:
