President Trump Slammed on Social Media for Walking Ahead of Queen Elizabeth

President Trump Slammed on Social Media for Walking Ahead of Queen Elizabeth

Although it was just several seconds, Twitters users automatically declared the president was breaking protocol and even embarrassing the country with his behavior. Elizabeth has met every USA president since Dwight Eisenhower with the exception of Lyndon Johnson, who never visited Britain while in office. It would be all the more surprising if the president had conformed to all the etiquettes of meeting with the royalty.

Mary Trump, who immigrated from Scotland in 1930 and became a US citizen in 1942, passed away in 2000.

Some hundreds of people have protested against Trump's visit to the UK.

As tweeted by Morgan, Air Force One sat on the tarmac for 30 minutes while the British TV star chatted with Trump.

There are a certain set of rules that have to be followed whenever someone visits the royals. Prime Minister Theresa May has curtsied before the Queen, but it's not always required from a non-British head of state. The guest has to arrive before her, but Trump did otherwise.

During the Queen's 66-year reign there have been 13 U.S. Presidents, from Harry S. Truman to Mr Trump, and she has now met all of them except Lyndon B. Johnson.

Speaking of the 92-year-old Queen, Trump remarked on her appearance.

President Donald Trump took a break from his sparring with US allies and the press on Friday to enjoy one of diplomacy's oldest traditions.

The Trumps were greeted with traditional pomp and circumstance when they arrived at Windsor, with the queen's guards marching and playing the United States national anthem. When the queen hosted Jimmy Carter for a state dinner at Buckingham Palace, the 39th president raised eyebrows, when instead of a bow, he kissed the queen mother right on the lips. Both moves were considered rude and disrespectful on social media. The video from the Windsor Castle shows the queen baffled at Trump's behaviour.

The Queen greeted the pair with a smile, although she had earlier glanced at her watch as she waited for their arrival.

Trump made headlines for disobeying royal protocol when he met with the Queen on Friday for afternoon tea.

People were not too pleased, again!

"She is an incredible woman, she is so sharp, she is so handsome, when I say lovely - inside and out". Many assumed the Trumps kept her waiting, but they were on time. Trump clearly did not read the rulebook before he visited the royalty.
