It makes a difference when you install a Marine General as the White House Chief of Staff. The level of tolerance for BS, either by design or accidentally is close to zero. That’s particularly when it involves national security, as General Kelly demonstrated on President Trump’s trip to China in November.
Although they had previously been informed by the Americans of the proper security procedures by the administration and they’ve had other instances of hosting American presidents, including multiple instances with the foreigner, pretend ‘president’ Hussein Obama, during his tenure in the Oval Office, something went wrong.
We are learning that Chinese security officers attempted to prevent the military aide carrying the nuclear football from accompanying President Trump, who was walking with Chinese President Xi, into the Great Hall of the People in Beijing. The aide is supposed to be near Trump at all times.
Blocking the aide from proceeding set off a series of events that resulted in chief of staff Kelly getting physical with the Chinese security officer. He should have known better than to get sideways with a Marine, particularly when it comes to the codes for starting or defending against a nuclear confrontation but such confrontations with the Chinese are not uncommon. It’s the diplomatic equivalent of a fighter jet buzzing one of our bombers at a distance of five feet.
When Kelly became aware of what was going on, he immediately intervened, instructing the aide to keep walking and to continue on into the hall. As he was doing so a Chinese official grabbed Kelly, with Kelly responding with force and shoving the man’s hand back. A Secret Service agent then grabbed the tackled the Chinese official, taking him to the ground.
The nuclear football was never out of the aide’s possession and was never in possession of any Chinese personnel. China later apologized to the Americans for the incident.
It’s not any more likely that the Chinese made an honest mistake than it was that they simply forgot to bring a stairway out to Hussein Obama’s plane when he came to China for some climate change shenanigans. They were testing Trump and Kelly to see what they could get away with and he made it clear the answer was and is, nothing.
