-- AUDIO AS INCOMING-- ROUGH CUT (NO REPORTER NARRATION) STORY: Republican presidential candidate Donald Trump highlighted an awkward row on the tarmac as President Barack Obama landed in China over the weekend, saying "it's a sign of such disrespect." "If that were me, I would say, you know what folks, I respect you a lot but I would close the doors," and get out of there, he said. China on Monday leveled responsibility at the United States and journalists for a fracas at a Chinese airport, in which officials of both countries exchanged heated remarks as President Barack Obama disembarked from his aircraft. Shortly after Obama's plane landed in the eastern city of Hangzhou, a Chinese official attempted to prevent his national security adviser Susan Rice from walking to the motorcade as she crossed a media rope line, speaking angrily to her before a Secret Service agent stepped between the two. The altercation occurred out of sight of Obama, who greeted ambassadors and other officials before the presidential motorcade pulled away with Rice.
