Trump Praises Xi for Lifetime Mandate Extension

China to take over US as global super power soon

The legislature is due to endorse a proposed constitutional amendment already approved by the ruling party to lift the two-term limit for president and vice president. In this way, there is continuity. "And he's great", said Trump. Chinese leaders then were excited considering the United States still represents the reference point for China, according to a professor of global relations at Lingnan University in Hong Kong.

Xinhua said China actually spent $161.87 billion in national defense past year, or about 1.3 percent of its gross domestic product.

"The country has seen its maritime interests being increasingly infringed upon in recent years, and thus seeking a stronger military is natural for it to safeguard its interests and counter any threat that may materialise from the aggressive posturing of others upset by its rise". "We have our own history and own systems and institutions", he told Reuters ahead of the session beginning. "The common folk really support it", Wang said.

I don't know about you, but if you hear the audio it sounds like he's joking. But the president is the only one with a formal limit of two terms - introduced by late paramount leader Deng Xiaoping in 1982 to prevent another lifelong dictatorship after Mao Zedong's tumultuous rule.

In a almost two-hour speech to the legislature, Premier Li Keqiang did not mention the scrapping of term limits but emphasised the primacy of Xi and the ruling Communist Party he leads in all aspects of Chinese life. That has left little doubt over what official line the roughly 3,000 delegates gathered in the Chinese capital are to follow. According to humanitarian watchdog group Human Rights Watch, his leadership has been notably brutal: "Under the leadership of President Xi Jinping, who will remain in power until 2022 and possibly beyond, the outlook for fundamental human rights, including freedoms of expression, assembly, association and religion, remains dire". "It reflects the will of the people".

China is slated to remove presidential term limits and adopt other measures to cement leader Xi Jinping's hold on power at an annual legislative session kicking off Monday.

While Trump may have just been wildly riffing - as he has been known to do in his off-script speaking events - the president continued the weird comments by attacking his former political rival Hillary Clinton and suggesting she should not have escaped her FBI investigation.

The Communist Party of China and the nation have undergone important and profound changes for more than a decade since 2004 when the Constitution was amended.

The Constitution is the fundamental legal document that ensures that even though China undergoes all sorts of difficulties, it will continue to advance along the path of socialism with Chinese characteristics, and realise national rejuvenation.
