Trump praises China's Xi for lifetime mandate extension

Trump praises China's Xi for lifetime mandate extensionDonald Trump on Saturday appeared to cheer on China’s Xi Jinping for paving the way to a limitless tenure, while delivering a lighthearted address at a Florida fundraising event. “Whether 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,” said Democrat Ro Khanna, a California congressman. China’s legislature will hold an annual session starting Monday that will grant Xi a second five-year stint as president — and also likely scrap the constitution’s limits on holding the office, clearing the way for him to rule for life.
