皇储 (huángchǔ): heir apparent

Xi Jinping.

Prior to succeeding Hu Jintao as president in spring of 2013, Xi Jinping was referred t as China's “heir apparent.”

Although “heir apparent” is sometimes translated as “crown prince,” it is a separate designation from the “crown princes” (太子 tàizǐ) or princelings, descendants of prominent and influential senior Communist officials. Xi Jinping is both “heir apparent” and a “princeling,” being the son of former PRC State Councilor Xi Zhongxun.

On February 11, 2009, Xi Jinping discussed international intervention in a speech to overseas Chinese in Mexico, generating yet another grass-mud horse neologism:

There are some foreigners who had eaten their fill and had nothing better to do, pointing their fingers at our affairs. China does not, first, export revolution; second, export poverty and hunger; or third, cause unnecessary trouble for you. What else is there to say?

有些吃饱了没事干的外国人,对我们的事情指手画脚。中国一不输出革命,二不输出饥饿和贫困,三不去折腾你们,还有什么好说的.
