Once Barack Obama’s plane touched down in China the G20 Summit, A Chinese official wanted to remind members of the administration it was their country and they needed to follow the preset rules of where to stand and how things were going to go.
You rarely see other countries pull rank like this on camera, but that’s the culture we live in today, camera’s everywhere.
Believe it or not, this shows how China looks at America as a weak leader. China is rising and their influence is bold. The Trans-Pacific Partnership (TPP) is not perceived as a great agreement and it may be just like NAFTA.
A Chinese official confronted U.S. President Barack Obama’s national security adviser on the tarmac on Saturday prompting the Secret Service to intervene, an unusual altercation as China implements strict controls ahead of a big summit.
The stakes are high for China to pull off a trouble-free G20 summit of the world’s top economies, its highest profile event of the year, as it looks to cement its global standing and avoid acrimony over a long list of tensions with Washington.
Shortly after Obama’s plane landed in the eastern city of Hangzhou, a Chinese official attempted to prevent his national security adviser Susan Rice from walking to the motorcade as she crossed a media rope line, speaking angrily to her before a Secret Service agent stepped between the two.
Rice responded but her comments were inaudible to reporters standing underneath the wing of Air Force One. It was unclear if the official, whose name was not immediately clear, knew that Rice was a senior official and not a reporter.
The same official shouted at a White House press aide who was instructing foreign reporters on where to stand as they recorded Obama disembarking from the plane.
“This is our country. This is our airport,” the official said in English, pointing and speaking angrily with the aide.
It sickens me to see the gross lack of respect our once great nation gets, but then again, Obama only needs to look in the mirror to discover the cause of this lack of respect!
It is entirely possible that the US contingent of imbeciles forgot the little-known detail called PROTOCOL and their privileged attitude is not welcome in sovereign nations that protect their borders.
Bottom line: No respect anymore for the American government! This is what happens when there is no leadership in Washington! Let’s fix that in November by voting for Donald J. Trump.
