TRUMP VOWS TO ‘DRAIN THE SWAMP’ IN WASHINGTON

trump3

[10/19/16]  Donald Trump has declared war on Congress, by promising to introduce term limits and cracking down on lobbyists.

Trump, who has long claimed that America is riddled with political corruption, said he wanted to ‘drain the swamp’ in Washington.

He told cheering supporters in Grand Junction, Colorado: ‘If I am elected President, I will push for a constitutional amendment to impose term limits on all members of Congress.’

Trump said members of the House of Representatives should be limited to six years and 12 years for Senators.

At present there are no limits on the amount of terms a congressman can serve and the record is 49 years, held by the late Senator Strom Thurmond, a Republican from South Carolina, who was in office from 1954 until 2003.

Trump is expected to push his agenda hard at tonight’s third Presidential debate with Hillary Clinton in Las Vegas.

He believes it will strike a chord with many Americans who perceive Washington as a cozy club where politicians and ‘special interests’ lobbyists scratch each other’s backs.
