Good job Britons ! You did not much more than us to "welcome" Trump !!!

Unless an anemic guard of honor, it's almost the same as in Brussels ! Not even an old carpet punched out !

Not really what we are used to from Britain...

3. They're keeping Trump in a cage well away from protesters.



Security has been stepped up outside the US ambassador's residence in London where Mr Trump is staying

6. Hi Elwood

I've carefully avoided Brussels since last week...

I don't know if it has been lifted or not. In case of doubt, I'll stay away from Brussels a few more days.

8. I would love to see the exact video of when President Obama came to Great Britain

I bet there was a red carpet, band and dignitaries. Watching this made me laugh. He looks angry he wasn’t greeted like a king.

11. I couldn't find Obama's arrival, but I did find this:



Above all, they didn't have to spirit Obama around from safe house to safe house to keep him out of the eye of the public.

14. Hi LastLiberal

Great minds think alike !

I picked exactly the same video.

I found a few ones on his arrival, but all are work visit. It is different and generally doesn't have much decorum. However, Obama was always greatly welcomed, decorum or not, day or night. I found an arrival by night, and still better than the cheetos arrival !

Trump is also on a work visit but it is not the same. It's another protocol .

16. The criticism was about the weak reception Gropenfuhrer got at the airport.

What reception did Obama get at the airport?

Will the Orange Shitstain get a 21 gun reception at a palace?

17. Obama also received a warm but perfunctory reception for his first visit.

There weren't any guards or red carpet. Just handshakes from the people who were there to greet Michelle and him.



Of course, that was at night, and the occasion was the G8. It wasn't one of Trump's "It's all about ME!" visits.

Remember when the red carpet wasn't rolled out for Obama in China and Trump said he'd tell the pilot to leave if the same thing happened to him?



Neither does he, apparently.

12. Hi Kim

Be proud of him

One of the countless video showing how much Barack Obama is respected.

Not sure Trump will greeted with a 41-gun salute...

10. No red carpet? No dignitaries at the end of the military line?

I noticed that while Mrs Trump hair moved in the breeze & his suit coat did, his hair in the back appears shellacked in place.

15. Hi Irisblue

In fact, to be fair, there is not always a red carpet. It depends on the kind of visit, the protocol applied,... But I don't want to be fair when it comes to Trump

Here, I feel there is something wrong. Even if it is a work visit,it is not the same as a NATO or G7, G20 summits. In theory, the decorum should be a little better.

I have the feeling, no one bothers anymore to save a minimum of appearances
