In remarks at a Mar-A-Lago fundraiser, President Trump mulled over the idea of being 'president for life'.

During a fundraising lunch at Mar-A-Lago Saturday, President Donald Trump pondered aloud the notion of a never-ending presidency for himself, after remarking on the Chinese Communist Party's recent move to bestow such a privilege upon President Xi JinPing.

In a recording of the speech obtained by CNN, Trump is heard saying,

"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."

In usual fashion, Trump's remarks Saturday were all over the map, including the now typical rant against Hillary Clinton and his Justice Department's failure to fully investigate her activities:

"I'm telling you, it's a rigged system folks," Trump said. "I've been saying that for a long time. It's a rigged system. And we don't have the right people in there yet. We have a lot of great people, but certain things, we don't have the right people."

One of the people Trump is likely alluding to is Attorney General Jeff Sessions, whom Trump has lambasted numerous times for Sessions' recusal from the Russia investigation and failure to take what the president believes would be appropriate measures against Clinton and her campaign.

Just last week, Trump called out Sessions once again, saying that his approach to the situation is "DISGRACEFUL":
