Trump on the edge of a commercial war

China's revered leader Deng Xiaoping in 1980 had restricted the presidential five-year tenure to two to avoid the perils which the cult around Mao Zedong had brought.

"Now we seem to be back in the kind of Big Leader Couture era around the world."Carl Minzner, the author of a new book about China's authoritarian revival, said: "In the late 1970s and the early 1980s, China moved out of the Maoist era and away from one-man rule to collective leadership". However, watch for signs of political fallout from this decision over the next year and possibly more anti-corruption purges.

The move "benefits protecting the authority of the party center and collective leadership with Comrade Xi Jinping at its core, and benefits the strengthening and perfecting of the national leadership system", he added, without elaborating.

U.S. laws state that presidents are only allowed to serve for two terms.

"For the constitution, it follows the same practice regarding the term of the president", Zhang said at a press conference preceding the opening of China's annual parliamentary session.

Democrat Representative Ro Khanna, commented about Trump's statements on Twitter, saying, "W$3 hether this was a joke or not, talking about being President for life like Xi Jinping is the most unAmerican sentiment expressed by an American President..." Reforms should focus on "international rules that have fallen behind the times and no longer align with the shared aspirations of all nations".

The president's office has nearly no official duties but Xi's posts as ruling party general secretary and chairman of the party commission that controls China's military already have no term limit.

The Chinese system is new, Xi said, also because it pools ideas and suggestions through institutional, procedural, and standardized arrangements and develops a scientific and democratic decision making mechanism. The NPC session, which would conclude later in the month, is a sequel to the 19th Party Congress of the Communist Party of China (CPC) in October.

At the meeting on Sunday, Xi also called on the country's other political parties and groups without affiliation to support the Communist Party's absolute hold on power. "Maybe we'll have to give that a shot someday", Trump said, reports PTI.

Beijing, however, wants to prevent the trade conflict with Washington from escalating, sources close to the matter said.

"He's now president for life, president for life". Wang Yi, who reports to Yang, is said to be in line to take over his boss' current title of state counselor while continuing on as foreign minister. I think it's great.

In closed-door remarks at his Mar-a-Lago golf club on Saturday, Trump praised the Chinese president's recent power grab and said he wouldn't mind trying it himself, according to CNN, which managed to obtain a recording.
