Donald Trump praises China's decision to scrap limit on presidency term

Xi is transforming China

Trump has personally praised Xi, despite railing against unfair trade practices by China during his 2016 presidential campaign and first year in office.

The remarks came in a closed-door luncheon fundraiser at Trump's Mar-a-Lago resort in Palm Beach, Fla.

"He's now president for life".

Removing presidential term limits in the state constitution is about protecting the authority of the ruling Communist Party with President Xi Jinping at its center, a Chinese government spokesman said on Sunday. And he's great. -And look, he was able to do that.

Echoing words he used during the 2016 election campaign, Trump said the trade deals give U.S. jobs and wealth "to other countries that have taken advantage of us for years". The Communist Party of China's (CPC) Central Committee has proposed to remove the two-term limit for the post of president and vice president through a constitutional amendment.

President Xi Jinping highlighted the importance of high-quality economic growth and poverty reduction while talking with lawmakers in Beijing.

The Communist party announced a possible end to term limits on February 25.

It is common for high-ranking Chinese officials to go into retirement when they reach the age of 68.

Already, the blanket and entirely positive coverage of Xi in official propaganda has drawn comparisons of a cult of personality to rival Mao's.

"I'm telling you, it's a rigged system folks", Trump said while discussing Clinton's alleged criminal behavior. And we don't have the right people in there yet. The Parliament season formally commenced with the opening of the CPPCC at the Great Hall of People.

Beijing said that it does not want a trade war with the United States, but will refuse to sit idly by as Washington measures hurt its economy. Further rounds of consultation in December involved retired statesmen and party elders, think tanks and scholars, it said.

Trump's reported gaffe triggered a predictable Twitterstorm. Democratic Congressman Ro Khanna called the Presidents remarks "the most unAmerican sentiment expressed by an American President", levity notwithstanding.

"George Washington would roll over in his grave".

Trump's critics also rushed to accuse him of showing "autocratic" tendencies with his "beyond outrageous" joke. Maybe the audience's laughter gave it away.

Trump's announcement was met with strong criticism by worldwide trading partners who said his plan could spark a trade war. Beyond outrageous. The man is a menace.

"Don't forget, China is great", Trump is heard saying in the recording.

Trump, a successful businessman before his presidency, shrugged off the threats, saying that "trade wars are good, and easy to win".

"China is a strategic competitor using predatory economics to intimidate its neighbors while militarizing features in the South China Sea", the strategy said. Song, from central Henan province, said, adding that he believed that Xi should remain president "forever".
