Gallagher Meets with President Trump on Term Limits
WASHINGTON, D.C. – Yesterday, Rep. Mike Gallagher led a bipartisan group of his House colleagues in a meeting on term limits with President Donald Trump in the White House. The group, which included Vincente Gonzalez (D-TX), Jodey Arrington (R-TX), Ro Khanna (D-CA), and Brian Fitzapatrick (R-PA) met with the President to urge his support for a constitutional amendment limiting the number of terms Senators and Representatives may serve.
Rep. Gallagher said: “I’m holding true to my commitment to bring some Wisconsin common sense to Washington, D.C. and change the way business gets done. Imposing term limits is one of first ‘Drain the Swamp’ measures I introduced in my first 100 days in office, and I appreciated the opportunity to discuss my resolution with President Trump. If we’re going to end the careerism that is infecting Washington, D.C., then implementing term limits and getting back to the citizen legislator model is a no-brainer.”
