Trump Calls for Congressional Term Limits


Donald Trump on Tuesday called for a constitutional amendment instituting congressional term limits, the Daily Beast reports.

While speaking at a rally in Colorado Springs, Colo., the Republican nominee took what many perceive as a stab at House Speaker Paul Ryan—who has recently said he would stop defending the candidate—by making a policy issue out of limiting the amount of time members of Congress can serve.

“If elected President, I’ll push for a costitutional amendment to impose term limits on all members of Congress,” he said after listing off the five points of his ethics reform plan—first revealed Monday evening—which includes 5-year bans on lobbying by former executive-branch officials, members of Congress, and their staffs. All of these proposals, Trump said, would work towards his goal of “draining the swamp” in D.C., including Hillary Clinton, “the most corrupt person to ever run for president.”



  1. What congress person is going to vote on term limits??? Now a days congress is a birth to death right, for once you get voted in you seem to have to die as a congress person, look at how so many congress people are beyond the age of 70 and 80 years old and still running. I keep on saying people you are their term limits and their promises to you are always going to be not fulfilled because they want to sit there all year around do nothing but harm and then get paid, plus all the good things that go with it. (Quip pro quo) Stop voting for the same people all the time and that will be called term limits.
