Donald Trump Shows Power Of U.S. By Curtsying For Saudi King

While accepting Saudi Arabia’s highest civilian honor on Saturday, President Donald Trump showed the true might of the U.S. by curtsying for King Salman.

Conservatives, including Trump, were quick to slam former President Barack Obama in 2012 when it appeared he bowed to then-Saudi leader King Abdullah at a G-20 summit. Obama and former President George W. Bush have both received the medal Trump accepted Saturday. 

.@BarackObama bowed to the Saudi King in public–yet the Dems are questioning @MittRomney‘s diplomatic skills.

And now for the tweets on Trump’s approach to the Saudi king: 

Last words from @POTUS before deplaning Air Force One: “I catch one American bowing here and you’re on the next Saudia flight home”…

@roulanski @Peezey33 Bowing is a sign of respect not subjugation. Curtsying on the other hand is just weird and pathetic.

We don’t care what anyone else says, Mr. President ― you curtsy as much as you want.
