The proposal of China's ruling Communist Party to scrap term limits for the nation's president shows China is heading "in a very dangerous direction," author and The Daily Beast columnist Gordon Chang told Newsmax TV on Monday.

In an interview on "Newsmax Now," Chang said Xi Jinping has been "de-institutionalizing the Communist Party."

The party's Central Committee is now proposing to remove from the constitution the expression that China's president and vice president "shall serve no more than two consecutive terms," the Xinhua News Agency has reported.

"For two decades, a lot of optimists were saying 'oh, the Communist Party is putting in place rules, and has got institutions' and all the rest of that," he said. "Then along comes Xi, and with with the wave of a hand is getting rid of all that."

"China is going in a very dangerous direction," Chang declared, calling Xi "a nationalist" who has been "very belligerent" and "is trying to take down the world's rules-based order."

"This is going to be an existential threat not just for countries around China but also for the United States as well. That's how serious China is right now."

Chang is the author of "Nuclear Showdown: North Korea Takes On the World," published by Random House.
