WASHINGTON: President Donald Trump says he thinks it's great that China's president now holds that office for life and muses that maybe the US will do the same someday.

Trump's remarks came during a luncheon for Republican donors today at his South Florida estate.

CNN reported the remarks based on a recording it obtained.

Chinese President Xi Jinping recently consolidated power.

Trump told the gathering: "He's now president for life. President for life. And he's great." Trump added: "I think it's great. Maybe we'll give that a shot someday."

Trump criticized his Democratic presidential opponent Hillary Clinton, repeated his view about "a rigged system," and called the invasion of Iraq "the single worst decision ever made." He referred to former President George W. Bush as "another real genius."
