Deference to a Superior

I understand bows like this are a sign of great respect, but in other parts of the world bows also represent deference to a superior. Meaning "great honor, respect and esteem due a superior or elder". Or "the willingness to carry out the wishes of others". This, by itself, is not a bad thing but when combined with other presidential actions makes for a pattern without any historical precedent. In my opinion, not a very good one.
