Trump praises Chinese President's power grab

Why not me? Trump jokes over Xi's lifetime presidency

US President Donald Trump praised his Chinese counterpart Xi Jinping on Saturday after the Communist party announced it was eliminating the two-term limit for the presidency.

China's hostility towards Taiwan has risen since the election to president of Tsai Ing-wen from the pro-independence Democratic Progressive Party in 2016.

"It is conducive to upholding the authority of the Central Committee of the party with Comrade Xi Jinping at the core and also to unified leadership", Zhang said.

The legislators are all but certain to approve the amendment Sunday, as the Chinese Communist Party (CCP) leadership sets the agenda for the National People's Congress (NPC).

That marked about a 7 percent increase, continuing a trend of lowered growth amid a slowing economy, despite regional tensions over the South China Sea and other issues.

China also opened its markets to import soya beans, beef and oil from US.

Adelson offers to help Trump administration pay for US Jerusalem embassy
One State Department official familiar with the process told CBS News private donations would make it more hard to reverse Mr. The Palestine Liberation Organization immediately decried Washington's embassy announcement as a "provocation to all Arabs".

Amending the Constitution is a big event in the country's political life and a major legislative activity with wide ranging implications, he said.

In public pronouncements and meetings with USA delegations since 2013, China's ruling Communist Party has repeatedly pledged to allow free market competition to play a "decisive role" in China's economy as a guiding principle - something Liu reiterated this week in Washington.

On the eve of China's parliament session, its spokesperson Zhang Yesui said the constitution of the CPC does not stipulate that general secretary of the CPC Central Committee and chairperson of the Central Military Commission (CMC) of the CPC shall not serve more than two consecutive terms.

Mr Xi's second term as president begins this year and extends to 2023.

China has been infuriated over a US bill that seeks to raise official contacts between Washington and Taipei, telling Taiwan on Friday it would only get burnt if it sought to rely on foreigners, adding to the warnings from state media about the risk of war.

China's government pledged Monday to deliver robust growth, pursue advanced technology and boost military spending while urging the public to embrace President Xi Jinping's rule as its ceremonial legislature prepared for changes to allow Xi to stay in power indefinitely. "We don't hear about opposition to his life tenure because of censorship", said Willy Lam, politics professor at the Chinese University of Hong Kong. He has also pursued a relentless but popular campaign against corruption that has punished more than a million party officials. It is important for both sides to perceive each other's strategic intentions correctly and with a fair mind and keep to the right direction of the China US relations, he said.
