Donald Trump Lays Out Seven Point Plan To Drain The Swamp

In a lengthy Saturday address in Gettysburg, PA, Donald Trump laid out a seven point plan to “drain the swamp” in Washington, DC, and revitalize the American economy.

Trump pledged that in his first 100 days in office, he will restore “honesty, accountability and change to Washington” through the following seven steps:

A Constitutional Amendment to impose term limits on all members of Congress

A hiring freeze on all federal employees to reduce federal workforce through attrition (exempting military, public safety, and public health)

A requirement that for every new federal regulation, two existing regulations must be eliminated

A five year ban on White House and Congressional officials becoming lobbyists after they leave government service

A lifetime ban on the White House officials lobbying on behalf of a foreign government

A complete ban on foreign lobbyists raising money for American elections

Cancel billions in payments to U.N. climate change programs and use the money to fix America’s water and environmental infrastructure

Trump also named several legislative measures which he will work with Congress to pass within his first 100 days in office.

Since supreme court justices are appointed for life the what terms are we going to limit them to?
1. President 4 year term
2. Senator 6 year term
3. Representative 2 year term.

1:02 the electoral college protects the small and Midwest states so everyone has a say. otherwise the big cities would control. not good everything else is good

4:02, tell that to Eastern Maryland! 4 Counties decide for the other 26. If 4 vote for "One", and 26 vote for "Two", "One " wins.
