“Can you believe that the Chinese would not give Obama the proper stairway to get off his plane - fight on tarmac!” he tweeted with a link to a New York Post article about the incident. 

A presidential aide reportedly got into a tiff with a Chinese official on the tarmac after they were told that the journalists traveling with Obama were prohibited from getting anywhere near him.

According to The New York Post, the Chinese Official yelled “This is our country! This is our airport!” when the White House official insisted the U.S. would set its own rules for its commander in chief.

It's not the first time the GOP presidential nominee has commented on Obama's arrival procedure on a foreign trip. 

In March, moments after Obama touched down in Havana for his historic Cuba trip, Trump criticized the communist country's president Raúl Castro, saying, "Wow, President Obama just landed in Cuba, a big deal, and Raul Castro wasn't even there to greet him. He greeted Pope and others. No respect."
