Donald Trump says he would have left G20 summit in China over Barack Obama’s Air Force One plane ‘snub’, by Barney Henderson.
Donald Trump has said he would have left the G-20 summit over what he said was a show of Chinese “disrespect” to President Barack Obama upon his arrival.
The other leaders attending the summit had a red carpet laid on a rolling airport staircase. Mr Obama, however, used a smaller exit at the rear end of Air Force One.
At last, a real alpha leader, not a community organizer in the thrall of political correctness.
It is not the first time that Mr Trump has claimed that Mr Obama receives a lack of “respect” by world leaders.
“The truth is they [other countries] don’t respect us. When President Obama landed in Cuba on Air Force One, no leader was there, nobody, to greet him. Perhaps an incident without precedent in the long and prestigious history of Air Force One.
“Then, amazingly, the same thing happened in Saudi Arabia. It’s called no respect,” Mr Trump said in April, according to the Washington Post.
When Jimmy Carter became president he famously carried his own luggage up the stairs of the White House when he moved in. “Man of the people”. Worst president in ages, humiliated by Iran.
When Reagan got in four years later, he had other people carry his luggage. Best president for ages. Won the cold war.
