Trump Praises Xi for Lifetime Mandate Extension

Trump Praises Xi for Lifetime Mandate Extension

Chinese President Xi Jinping is seen on a large screen at the opening session of the Chinese People's Political Consultative Conference in Beijing's Great Hall of the People, Saturday, March 3.

Without naming the West, Xi said China's "multiparty cooperation" system meant it had avoided the drawbacks faced by other countries where different parties compete to take turns to rule.

"And look, he was able to do that", Trump said, according to CNN.

"I think it's great", Trump added.

Echoing words he used during the 2016 election campaign, Trump said the trade deals give United States jobs and wealth "to other countries that have taken advantage of us for years".

China's President Xi Jinping may obtain an alarming amount of authority if he succeeds in abolishing presidential term limits, put in place in 1982 to prevent another Mao Zedong.

Among other things, Chipman said, by 2020, China was likely to field its Chengdu J-20 stealth fighter jet, effectively ending the US monopoly on such combat aircraft.

Trump made these comments shortly after the Chinese ruling Communist Party announced it was eliminating the two-term presidency limit which leaves the door open for President Xi to serve indefinitely. Though the highlight of parliament is supposed to be the state-of-the-nation work report presented by Premier Li Keqiang, there is little doubt that with the removal of the term limits, this year is Xi's show more than ever.

A top Chinese official called Saturday for continued efforts to rally non-mainland ethnic Chinese, including those overseas, around the country's national interests and help realize President Xi Jinping's "Chinese Dream" of national rejuvenation.

In his remarks, Trump decried the current electoral system which he had repeatedly slammed as being "rigged" in the 2016 presidential campaign.

Explaining for the first time why the CPC opted for such a move, spokesman of the National People's Congress Zhang Yesui told media here that the president has the term-limit while there was no term limits for head of the party and the military. "A stable and growing relationship will not only serve the fundamental interests of both the peoples and it is also the what the worldwide community wants to see", Zhang, a former Chinese Ambassador to USA, said.

He is "president for life"; "Maybe we'll give that a shot some day".

"No, he's great", he said.

"George Washington would roll over in his grave", he wrote. Over the course of his presidency, Trump has expressed admiration for a slew of authoritarians, from Russian President Vladimir Putin to President Rodrigo Duterte of the Philippines to Turkish President Recep Tayyip Erdogan.

"China's development is conducive to world peace, stability and prosperity", Zhang said, pointing especially to global economic growth, trade and poverty reduction.
