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. – READ MORE

    This may well be the first time that D J Chump has has said anything that resembles a substantive policy. I am not a US citizen so y’all probably think this has nuthin’ to do with me…well, it has. The US prez race is globally pertinent and much of us are astounded that DJT is even in the running. Man, he’s dangerous!

    I appreciate that the US may well be sick of the ‘establishment’ – you are not alone – but are you really going to vote for a billionaire (aye, just one of the guys) who has left a trail of bankrupticies and grotesque offence behind him? Are you so fed up that you’ll vote for ANYONE who doesn’t fit the Washington profile? The man’s not fit in ANY way to run a country, with a finger on the button of an obscene amount of nuclear weaponry.
    I’m a dimwit about your gridlocked government, but it seems like his idea on office terms seems, dare I say it, reasonable. So why get so relentlessly stuck in a quagmire of conspiracy theories?

    I’m not a US citizen either but one thing I need to correct is your comment DJT has a ‘string of bankruptcies’. Trump has over 500 companies. Of that number only 4 went bankrupt. That’s a stellar accomplishment given that half of all businesses fail. (80% in the restaurant business) I’m a business owner myself and the world of business is fraught with peril, not least of which is a change in government regulation after you’ve invested a lot of time and money working on a business model that suddenly become irrelevant.

  • haggis-humper

    OK gotcha. However, have you used a ‘business model’ that screws creditors, pension funds, foreign labour, former employees? Do you honestly think that these 4 bankruptcies were a result of a ‘change in government regulation’ and not just patent business incompetence? Look, the guy has screwed people over, pays no federal tax and only got lucky because of the sperm lottery. I’ve been intimately involved in big business myself and I’m acutely aware of the scheming and bottom-line psyche that can exist.

    As for his ‘over 500 companies’ and ‘stellar accomplishment’ well…you really, really, no really, can’t believe everything DJT says

  • andersm0

    Trump’s business successes and failures are all a matter of public record. You can check his business performance for yourself. You must be the only person on earth who has charged Trump with incompetence. You’re thinking with pure emotion rather than facts. I have a hard time believing you were ever intimately involved in business if you let your emotions run away on you like this. Success is predicated on being able to control your impulses and work with your intellect.

  • haggis-humper

    Oh boy. I am certainly not ‘…the only person on earth who has charged Trump with incompetence.’ It is a valid charge but not the one I made. Unaccountable greed was the charge levelled. As for the accusation that I’m throwing some sort of hissy-fit, you’re dead wrong. I do not like the guy one wee bit, but that does not make it impossible for me to arrive at an objective judgement. If you look to him as some sort of business role-model, that’s just fine. It helps me comprehend your indignation.

  • andersm0

    The people who charge Trump with incompetence are very few and all personally dislike the man and let that color their objectivity. Whatever you think of him, his business acumen can’t be faulted. He made his money on his own grit and determination, not like Hillary who used her position as Secretary of State to enrich herself through the Clinton Foundation. Watch Clinton Cash and then compare.

  • haggis-humper

    You assume that because I do not like DJT, I am therefore pro-Clinton. Politics, like life, does not always distill into simple partisan binary choices. A Breibart-backed doccie is not exactly an objective source. However, I am quite happy to say that I do not like the influence of $$$ in Clinton’s establishment-ism. It is an uncomfortable and blatant truth that US politics is infested with with big business lobbyists, each trying to outspend the other in an attempt to run things. As for faulting Trump’s ‘business acumen’ aye, guilty as charged. The only reason he is still in business is that he’s part of the self-serving, stinking-rich and rapacious elite who are ‘too big to fail.’
