Media write about Trump's desire to rule forever
Another scandal erupted around the personality of the American president. This time, Donald Trump provoked journalists with his joke that the president should lead the country for more than two terms of 4 years.
Like most other scandals around the 45th president of the United States, the current one erupted after a material published by CNN. The reporter quite seriously tells that Trump praised the recent initiative of the Chinese leadership to remove the limitation on the number of terms for the election of Xi Jinping. The headline says:
Trump on China’s Xi consolidating power: ‘Maybe we’ll give that a shot someday’
But If you listen to the recording of the speech of the American president, you can hear that Trump is ironic. In fact, he does not support this position.
“He’s now president for life. President for life. And he’s great. And look, he was able to do that. I think it’s great. Maybe we’ll give that a shot someday,” - said Donald Trump. It is worth noting that these words were made by Trump during a closed fund-raising event in Florida. In the hands of journalists was only an audio recording of the speech
However, CNN journalists do not seem to have a sense of humor. Or they are ready to use any excuse to criticize Trump. In any case, the world media immediately picked up this news and began to replicate it.
Recall that in late February at the plenum of the Central Committee of the Communist Party of China were considered proposals for making major changes in the constitution of the country. Experts expect that at the upcoming March session of the National People’s Congress can be adopted amendments that should ensure that one person can hold the office of chairman of the PRC more than two terms. Thus, the head of the People’s Republic of China Xi Jinping will have the opportunity not to resign from office in 2023.
Obviously, after such an initiative, Xi Jinping himself and the whole of China were subjected to the most powerful criticism.
In itself, the "principle of succession of power" is one of the most important for liberals: with its help, the looseness of public administration and control over the leadership of the country by international structures are ensured. Virtually all the "color revolutions" one of their main slogans was precisely the successiveness of power and the desire for "change." Strictly in this vein, the last 6 years, and the Russian liberal opposition. Unwillingly, Trump stepped on the sick callus of his political opponents. And what is characteristic, even for an innocent joke, the entire information resource of globalists has hit upon it.
