(Gateway Pundit) – Scary details have emerged about a physical confrontation involving Chief of Staff Gen. John Kelly, a Chinese security official and the ‘nuclear football,’ during President Trump’s November visit to Beijing, China.
- When the U.S. military aide carrying the nuclear football entered the Great Hall, Chinese security officials blocked his entry. (The official who carries the nuclear football is supposed to close to the president at all times, along with a doctor.)
- A U.S. official hurried into the adjoining room and told Kelly what was happening. Kelly rushed over and told the U.S. officials to keep walking — “We’re moving in,” he said — and the Americans all started moving.
- Then there was a commotion. A Chinese security official grabbed Kelly, and Kelly shoved the man’s hand off of his body. Then a U.S. Secret Service agent grabbed the Chinese security official and tackled him to the ground.
According to the report, at no time did the Chinese security official make contact with the nuclear football. Aside from the skirmish, Trump’s trip to China went off without a hitch.
As The Gateway Pundit’s Jim Hoft reported, the President was “treated like royalty.”

China shut down the Forbidden City for President Trump.

Despite Trump’s tough line on US-China trade relations, the Chinese people could not hold the American President in higher regard. Chinese citizens could be heard referring to POTUS as “Donald the Strong,” “Uncle Trump,” and “Grand Commander.”
