    Trump endorses the Presidency for life!

    Trump supports President Xi as president for life and says he wants to try that someday!

    Trump on China's Xi consolidating power: 'Maybe we'll give that a shot some day'

    Source: https://www.cnn.com/2018/03/03/politics/trump-maralago-remarks/index.html



    (CNN)President Donald Trump bemoaned a decision not to investigate Hillary Clinton after the 2016 presidential election, decrying a "rigged system" that still doesn't have the "right people" in place to fix it, during a freewheeling speech to Republican donors in Florida on Saturday.

    In the closed-door remarks, a recording of which was obtained by CNN, Trump also praised China's President Xi Jinping for recently consolidating power and extending his potential tenure, musing he wouldn't mind making such a maneuver himself.
    "He's now president for life. President for life. No, he's great," Trump said. "And look, he was able to do that. I think it's great. Maybe we'll have to give that a shot some day."

    Those words will go in one ear of Trump supporters and out the other and then they will thoughtlessly continue to defend and support him.

    Listening to the actual recording and not just reading the transcript, everyone is laughing and the general tone is very light and not at all serious. It all sounded more like joking around than anything else to me.

    Of course. The only person fit to be president for life is Mountain Man. And Trump knows that.

    Not having to worry about re-election certainly allows one to be more flexible. At least that's what Obama told the Russian official that one time.

    And another benefit if you were president for life was that we would no longer have to take into consideration that the president sometimes, even though not very often, actually says something that is true.

    Joking around on TV conversing with the president of China?!?!?!? The laughter I heard was a nervous uncertain laughter hoping it was a joke.
