Xi Jinping, Donald Trump, Rodrigo Duterte: Presidents For Life ?

93DEDD8D-0D0E-4ED6-8F5F-4DE5F64519DD.jpegWASHINGTON, D.C. (The Adobo Chronicles, Washington Bureau) – Xi Jinping recently abolished term limits for China’s presidency, paving the way for the possibility that he will be president for life.

President Donald Trump praised the Chinese leader’s decision and indicated that the U.S. can learn something from Jinping’s decision.

In the Philippines, while Rodrigo Duterte has repeatedly said that he is willing to step down even before his term ends, many Filipinos want him to stay beyond 2022.

Are we seeing an increasing trend of presidents for life?
