Making Libs Heads Explode: 'Maybe we'll give that a shot': Donald Trump praises Xi Jinping's power grab

If there's one thing Trump loves to do is tweak the media, or more specifically Liberal elites. 
Case in point is this article from The Guardian who can't understand Trump's humor at suggesting maybe the U.S. should one day elect a president for life.  Libs are unable to see it's a joke to tweak a reaction and distract them from other Trump bashing memes. 

The Guardian reports Donald Trump has celebrated Xi Jinping’s bid to shepherd China back into an era of one-man dictatorship, suggesting the United States might one day “give that a shot”.

China’s authoritarian leader took power in 2012 and had been expected to rule until 2023. However, last week it emerged that Xi would attempt to use an annual meeting of China’s parliament, which kicks off on Monday morning, to abolish presidential term limits by changing the Chinese constitution. 

 Liberals have condemned the power grab, which will almost certainly be approved by members of the National People’s Congress who have flocked to Beijing for the two-week summit. Experts say the amendment paves the way for Xi to be China’s ruler-for-life. “This is a critical moment in China’s history,” Cheng Li, a prominent expert in elite Chinese politics who has criticised the move, told AP. 

However, Trump offered a more positive assessment during a fundraising event at his Mar-a-Lago estate, where he hosted Xi last April. “He’s now president for life. President for life. And he’s great,” the US president reportedly told Republican donors.
