WASHINGTON: Chinese President Xi Jinping has so many titles that he has earned himself a nickname: the “Chairman of Everything,” CNN writes.

An article by Jessis Yeung on CNN says since taking office in 2012, “Jinping has become head of not only the state, the ruling Chinese Communist Party, and the armed forces, as is normal for the country’s leader — but also of multiple new party super-committees, prompting speculation from international commentators that he is less of a president and more of an autocrat.”

A new bill in the US Congress wants to strip Xi Jinping of the title “President,” which most Western governments and English-language news organizations — including CNN — refer to him by.

The bill, called the “Name the Enemy Act,” was introduced to the House of Representatives on August 7 by Republican Rep. Scott Perry of Pennsylvania.

The bill would prohibit the federal government from creating or disseminating any documents that “refer to the head of state of the People’s Republic of China as anything other than General Secretary of the Central Committee of the Chinese Communist Party, or alternatively, as General Secretary,” a draft of the bill says, according to CNN.
