Trump praises China's Xi Jinping after move to end term limits

Trump praises China's Xi Jinping after move to end term limits

China has no desire to overturn the existing global order and its increasingly powerful military does not constitute a threat to others, the spokesman for the country's ceremonial legislature said Sunday.

It holds true as the 2,980 deputies of the NPC will unanimously approve the amendment pushed by the Communist Party.

The party said last week it would remove the two-term limit clause, setting the stage for Xi to stay in office indefinitely should he wish, prompting accusations from some in the country that China is set to become another North Korea. President for life, and he's great, and look, he was able to do that. Trump added, "I think it's great. Maybe we'll have to give that a shot someday", Trump said, reports PTI.

China doesn't want a trade war, the politician said - but it will respond in kind if Trump's tariffs harm it economically. The plan to repeal term limits has prompted unusually open expressions of dissent in China.

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 had the term-limit while there was no term limits for head of the party and the military.

Zhang 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.

"The president has talked about term limits in a number of capacities during the campaign", Sanders said.

The American action to put sanctions on other countries reasonable steel and aluminium exports in the name of harming national security is groundless, Chinese Foreign Minister Wang Yi said on Saturday. "But that's a decision that would be up to China".

"Most of the modern countries in the world adopt this two-term presidency".

In order to change the current prohibition, it would require initial support of two-thirds of both houses of Congress or support of two-thirds of state legislatures - and then would need to be ratified by three-quarters of the states.

One senior Asia diplomat, speaking before the announcement was made, said the real rise would likely be at least double what China revealed considering efforts to build up the industrial military complex and deepen military-civilian integration.

"It planted the seeds for China to once again fall into turmoil", Li wrote. "Our jobs and wealth are being given to other countries that have taken advantage of us for years".

The GDP growth target is the same as that of a year ago, but might deliver different growth as China makes it clear to prioritize growth quality over pace. A report to Congress on the president's trade agenda by US Trade Representative Robert E. Lighthizer on Wednesday vowed to use "all available tools" to combat unfair practices and to defend US national interests against "hostile" powers such as China and Russian Federation.
