After Embarrassing Obama On The World Stage, China Shows Who They Really Respect
Donald Trump is making his first visit to China as President of the United States, and we are already seeing a change in foreign relations.
A year ago former president Barack Obama was embarrassed on a national stage when he was forced to exit out of the butt of Air Force One after Chinese officials refused a stairway tall enough for the plane’s door.
Clearly they think a bit higher of our current commander-in-chief, as president Trump and First Lady Melania had the red carpet rolled out for them upon arriving in Beijing.
President Trump, along with President Xi Jinping took in the sights of the Forbidden City, and was treated to a special opera performance put on in the former imperial palace.
Following the show, groups of children greeted the president, welcoming him to China, and adding “I love you!”
One issue facing Trump during his trip to China is that Chinese citizens aren’t allowed to have a twitter account. The president insisted that he needed to be able to use his social media account to communicate with the American people. Fortunately, the Chinese government was more than willing to comply.
“The president will tweet whatever he wants, that’s his way of communicating directly with the American people,” an official for the president said. “So long as he can access his Twitter account – because Twitter is banned in China along with Facebook and most of the other social media. I’m sure we’ve got the gear aboard this airplane to make it happen. But it is noteworthy that none of the major western platforms for social media are even allowed to operate in China.”
During his visit, Trump also put pressure on China to “act with urgency and with great determination” in isolating North Korean dictator Kim Jung-un, while also praising the new Chinese leader.
“The relationship developed by President Xi and myself I think is outstanding. We look forward to being together many times in the future. And I believe lots of very potentially bad problems will be going away.”
One thing is for sure, it’s obvious the nation of China is showing the U.S. leader a lot more respect this time around. You’ve got to wonder why that is…
