OBAMA DISEMBARK FROM ‘ASS’ OF AIR FORCE ONE AFTER CHINESE OFFICIALS REFUSED TO GIVE HIM STAIRCASE SAYING ‘THIS IS OUR COUNTRY!’…A CALCULATED HUMILIATING MOVE.
China humiliates Obama in a calculated diplomatic snub by not providing a red carpet and rolling staircase to Air Force One when he landed. Obama was forced to disembark from ‘ass’ of the presidential plane, a little-used exit in the plane’s belly.
The Guardian reported:
China’s leaders have been accused of delivering a calculated diplomatic snub to Barack Obama after the US president was not provided with a staircase to leave his plane during his chaotic arrival in Hangzhou before the start of the G20.
Chinese authorities have rolled out the red carpet for leaders including India’s prime minister, Narendra Modi, the Russian president, Vladimir Putin, the South Korean president, Park Geun-hye, Brazil’s president, Michel Temer, and the British prime minister, Theresa May, who touched down on Sunday morning.
But the leader of the world’s largest economy, who is on his final tour of Asia, was forced to disembark from Air Force One through a little-used exit in the plane’s belly after no rolling staircase was provided when he landed in the eastern Chinese city on Saturday afternoon.
When Obama did find his way on to a red carpet on the tarmac below there were heated altercations between US and Chinese officials, with one Chinese official caught on video shouting: “This is our country! This is our airport!”
“The reception that President Obama and his staff got when they arrived here Saturday afternoon was bruising, even by Chinese standards,” the New York Times reported.
