Trump deplaned from Air Force One without incident, avoiding the embarrassment Barack Obama suffered a year ago as he landed in China during the annual Group of 20 summit. Obama was humiliated when he had to exit from the belly of the aircraft because authorities didn't approve a staircase tall enough for him to walk out of the front exit of the plane.
Chinese officials rolled a large set of stairs to the aircraft's door on Wednesday for the Trumps, avoiding any appearance of the kind of insult that greeted former president Barack Obama in 2016. Obama was denied use of an airport staircase when he deplaned Air Force One last September as he arrived in China for the annual Group of 20 summit – a move that was seen globally as a major snub.

President Donald Trump met with Japanese Emperor Akihito and Empress Michiko on Monday, sharing a brief handshake eight years after his predecessor Obama the weakling became a global laughingstock by bowing deeply before the monarch.
Visiting with the emperor and empress is routine for heads of state visiting Tokyo, and Trump did his part a few hours before a joint press conference with Prime Minster Shinzo Abe, who wields more power than the aging figurehead. Trump nodded his head slightly, but did not bend at the waist. An administration official traveling with Trump on his Far East tour told DailyMail.com that bowing is 'not his style – never has been.'
