After a flawless three day state visit to Japan (see below), President Trump returned to the White House via Marine One experiencing a perfect landing.
Watch the landing but then the precision as a Marine exits Marine One to stand at the bottom of the stairs.
President Trump and First Lady Melania then exit Marine One…

CBS News reports – The president and first lady Melania Trump kicked off the formal visit with handshakes and greetings with Naruhito and Empress Masako.
Japan’s military band played the United States National Anthem, while First Lady Melania and President Trump held their hands over thier hearts.
Mr. Trump, who is on a four-day state visit to Japan, was treated to a welcome ceremony full of pomp and pageantry. On a hot, sunny day, he stood at attention alone atop a platform before he walked along a red-carpeted route to review troops. Military bands played and Mr. Trump passed in front of a group of schoolchildren waving U.S. and Japanese flags.
About 50 minutes later, Trump and the first lady returned to the “Beast” limousine and the US president departed for his next meeting: a summit and lunch with his avowed friend Abe.
In the evening, Trump and Melania will be back at the palace for a banquet.
That will mark the lavish high point in a Japan visit laden with feel-good moments aimed at celebrating US-Japanese ties at a time of growing regional uncertainty due to US trade policies, a rising China and nuclear-armed North Korea.
Trump called the occasion “a great honor”.
