USA: Trump vows to 'drain DC swamp' with Congress term limits

2 19.10.2016 Инфо

Republican presidential nominee Donald Trump said that would push for a constitutional amendment to put term limits on members of Congress if elected, speaking during a rally in Colorado Springs, Tuesday.
Trump stated that he would propose a six-year limit for members of the House of Representatives and a 12-year limit for members of the Senate. "It is indeed time to drain the swamp of Washington DC."
The GOP candidate calls come as he vowed a series of reforms on prohibiting government lobbying, which includes stopping former Congress from attempting to influence government for five years following their departure from office.
