As Obama was preparing to attend the G20 summit in the eastern Chinese city of Hangzhou, US officials balked at requiring President Obama to use a staircase provided by the Chinese to disembark his airplane instead of the set of rolling stairs flown in by the US, leading some to wonder if the gesture was simple oversight or a subtle sign of disrespect.
"China provides a rolling staircase for every arriving state leader, but the USA side complained that the driver doesn't speak English and can't understand security instructions from the United States; so China proposed that we could assign a translator to sit beside the driver, but the USA side turned down the proposal and insisted that they didn't need the staircase provided by the airport", an anonymous official told the South China Morning Post on Sunday.
"I always want to make sure that if I'm having a meeting, that it's actually productive and we're getting something done", Obama said.
The president's subdued arrival on Saturday afternoon, from a secondary exit on the presidential plane, stood in contrast to other world leaders who departed their planes onto red-carpeted stairs - and some, including Trump, perceived it as a snub by Chinese officials. "And across the region, including in the East and South China seas, United States will continue to fly and sail and operate wherever global law allows and support the right of all countries to do the same", Obama said. "And Obama is coming down a metal staircase", Trump said in Ohio.

"You saw that all the other country leaders all used the stairs that China provided".
Obama noted China has been run during his lifetime by a Communist party that has been "much more anti-Western" in the past. "We've got a lot of planes and a lot of helicopters and a lot of cars and a lot of guys, and if you're a host country, sometimes it may feel a little bit much".
Obama learned about the insult as he emerged from the Group of 20 summit in Hangzhou, China. "It would be a departure from regular diplomatic practice if the United States was in charge of the entire security arrangements for its president in the visiting country", Shi explained.
