During Donald Trumps first visit to Saudi Arabia since taking office, many noticed that President Trump didnt bow to the Saudi King like Obama did.
In 2009, then President Obama made a point to bow to Saudi King Salman.
However, as President Trump shook hands with the Saudi King after arriving Saturday morning, he broke from Obama by not bowing:

Video of the Obama bow:
An impeachable offense?
President Trump had a Royal welcome while Obama had a camel crap on his shoes.
Th King bowed to our President.
Well, there goes a tradition which time was past before it even started.
[The King bowed to our President.]
I noticed that.
Many have prayed for GOD’S favor to fall on PRESIDENT TRUMP.
The King bowed to our President.
Obama for Gitmo, 2017!
No headscarves on the Trump women either - That's MY President!
IOW, Trump didn’t grovel and kiss butt but presented himself the leader of the most powerful country on the planet.
they had CNN on at the gym....
while the headlines read “Trump Arrives in SA amid controversy at home” it was more than enjoyable listening to them cry about how much better President Trump is being received in SA...how the Saudi’s hated obama for his inept handling in Syria and disdain the deal he made with Iran while President Trump stands on the exact opposite side of obama on those issues...
it was also fun listening to cnn begrudgingly admit while the Saudi king met President Trump upon his arrival- obama only got a governor to meet him...
It’s obama that “broke from tradition”... worthless media.
Trump is NOT bowing. He is bending forward to facilitate the draping of a medal over Trump’s head.
He is still trying to topple this administration....doesn't that sound like a Communist thing...certainly not a Constitutional American way to behave...the Obama's OFA is a radical group with one thought in mind....Get rid of the present POTUS a real American! so Obama can continue on his course of Socialism....by the way, you can make as much as $30.00 an hour on welfare....Obama's administration paid Americans NOT TO WORK...Trump believes in hard and rewarding work...not welfare for the hail and hearty.
Photos taken from other angles show that the monarch is naturally bowed in the shoulders from age...he's in his eighties, I believe.
Kings don't "bow" to anyone, unless it's in a religious service.
I was watching it on Fox this morning and I think the 80 year old king was standing as tall as he can. He was bent over and walking with a cane the whole time, except when sitting.
Trump not groveling like a eunuch servant is a break from Ubama.
