Donald Trump: I Will Push Term Limits to Tell Congress ‘You’re Fired’ !
COLORADO SPRINGS, Colo. — Donald Trump’s Washington is shaping up to look a lot like a boardroom scene from “The Apprentice.”
The GOP nominee on Tuesday told supporters here that he plans to tell the entrenched guard of Congress “you’re fired,” continuing his ethics reform push by advocating for term limits on members of Congress that would further “drain the swamp” in Washington, D.C.
“If I’m elected president I will push for a constitutional amendment to impose term limits on all members of Congress,” Trump said, seeking to capitalize on the momentum of prior ethics reforms announced one night earlier.
Trump at a rally later in Grand Junction said his proposal would limit House members to 6 years (3 terms) and Senate members to 12 years (2 terms).
“The decades of failure in Washington and decades of special interest dealing must and will come to an end,” Trump said to applause earlier Tuesday, pushing for “new voices” to have a chance at changing the system he sees as failing the American public.
