Donald Trump added a new proposal to his recently unveiled ethics reforms package on Tuesday, promising to pursue a constitutional amendment that would impose term limits on members of Congress should he win the election on Nov. 8.
"If I'm elected president, I will push for a constitutional amendment to impose term limits on all members of Congress," the Republican presidential hopeful told supporters at his afternoon rally in Colorado Springs, Colo. "Decades of failure in Washington and decades of special interest dealings must and will come to an end."
Establishing term limits at the federal level would help "break the cycle of corruption" that has plagued Washington and "give new voices to change so that we can have a government that works again and can function properly," Trump argued.
"The time for congressional term limits has finally arrived," he added to applause. "Not only will it end our government corruption but it will end the economic stagnation that we are in right now — no growth."
