Historical meet of Chinese parliament begins

Trump Maybe the US will have a president for life someday

In a almost two-hour speech to the legislature, Premier Li Keqiang did not mention the scrapping of term limits but emphasized the primacy of Xi and the ruling Communist Party he leads in all aspects of Chinese life.

"President for life. No, he's great", Trump reportedly told Republican donors during a closed-door event in Florida.

While Trump railed against China's "theft" of United States intellectual property, Washington has recently turned the focus of its trade policy on China to investigating the latter's intellectual property system. Maybe the audience's laughter gave it away. "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 U.S., said.

It is conducive to uphold the authority of the Central Committee of the party with Xi Jinping at the core and also unified leadership.

"Either he's losing it, or we're losing it if we let him stay on after this". Indeed, that's exactly what Fox News wants us to do. You mean, suspend the constitution and make you a permanent tyrant? Trump said. "When she goes home at night, does she say, 'What a great life?' I don't think so".

The term limits in China were put in place in 1982 to keep them from going back into any type of dictatorship.

Before that, US presidents, though not prohibited, out of tradition, only served for a maximum of two terms.

"The constitutional revision is a major move to advance law-based governance and modernise China's system and capacity for governance", according to an explanation on the revisions to be delivered to lawmakers on Monday morning at the first session of the 13th National People's Congress (NPC), or Chinese Parliament.

Were the restriction to be changed now, then either two-thirds of both houses of Congress would need to support it or two-thirds of state legislatures to do so - and then three-quarters of the states would need to ratify it. The Communist party announced February 25 the end of the two-term limit for the president-and parliament is expected to ratify the move.

Liu He, a member of the Political Bureau of the Communist Party of China Central Committee and director of the General Office of the Central Leading Group for Financial and Economic Affairs, visited the USA from Tuesday to Saturday.

The Chinese Navy also expanded its global reach with flotilla ships sailing through the far-off oceans to expand China's influence.

Even though Xi is at the height of his political power, his future standing will depend on his handling of government debt, social welfare reform and China's relationship with other powerful countries, according to The Washington Post. "Whether this was a joke or not, talking about being President for life like Xi Jinping is the most un-American sentiment expressed by an American President", said Democrat Ro Khanna, a California congressman.
