IT’S A POPULAR IDEA: Trump proposes term limits for Congress.

Donald Trump on Tuesday called for term limits in Congress as part of his new ethics reform proposal.

“If I’m elected president I will push for a constitutional amendment to impose term limits on all members of Congress,” Trump said at a rally in Colorado Springs, Colo. “Decades of failure in Washington and decades of special-interest dealing must and will come to an end.”

“Not only will it end our government corruption, but we will end the economic stagnation that we’re in right now — no growth,” Trump, the Republican presidential nominee, added of the proposal.

Trump released a five-point ethics plan Monday night in an effort to “drain the swamp” in Washington.

He also wants Congress to pass a law preventing all administration officials, lawmakers and congressional aides from lobbying the government for five years after leaving public service.

He should endorse my revolving-door surtax. It has bipartisan support!
