If you wanted more evidence that Donald Trump really yearns to be a dictator, look no further than his praise this weekend of President Xi Jinping’s move to remove term limits so he can become dictator-for-life of that country. He did this at a private dinner, of course.
U.S. President Donald Trump praised Chinese President Xi Jinping Saturday after the ruling Communist party announced it was eliminating the two-term limit for the presidency, paving the way for Xi to serve indefinitely, according to audio aired by CNN.
“He’s now president for life, president for life. And he’s great,” Trump said, according to audio of excerpts of Trump’s remarks at a closed-door fundraiser in Florida aired by CNN.“And look, he was able to do that. I think it’s great. Maybe we’ll have to give that a shot someday,” Trump said to cheers and applause from supporters.
The White House will claim he was joking, of course, because that’s their usual excuse. But look at that last line — “to cheers and applause from supporters.” Not only does Trump want to be a dictator, but his most rabid fans wish for that as well. What better way to end all of his problems? He could end any investigations into him with a wave of his hand. This is also why he admires Putin, because when Putin has someone challenging him, they just mysteriously end up dead.
