Trump’s trip to China involved a rather intense showdown between US and Chinese security forces

For a brief moment there looked like there would be a game of Nuclear Football between the Chinese and Americans during the President’s visit to the Great Hall of the People. The football in question is actually the codes and devices that follow the President everywhere that he goes, just in case there is a nuclear Armageddon scheduled. A Chinese guard tried to intercept the aide with the football and for a moment it looked like he would be thrown for a loss. That is when White House Chief of Staff General John Kelly stepped in and took charge. It is always good to have a General around when you need one.

As Written and Reported By Ryan Pickrell for the Daily Caller:

President Donald Trump’s trip to China appears to have involved a rather intense showdown between American and Chinese security forces, according to Axios.

Wherever the president goes, so does the nuclear football. China apparently did not get the memo, as Chinese security officials attempted to block the military aide carrying the briefcase from entering the Great Hall of the People with the president when he visited last November, Axios reports, citing five sources familiar with the incident.

Chief of Staff John Kelly rushed back to address the situation, instructing the man and his accompanying officials to keep moving. A Chinese security officer grabbed Kelly, who pushed the Chinese man’s hand away. A U.S. secret service agent then tackled the security guard to the ground.

The Trump administration followed the proper procedures before the president’s trip, but for China, there was either some sort of misunderstanding or the country intentionally caused a scene. Chinese security personnel reportedly never touched the nuclear football, and they apologized after the incident was resolved.
