President Donald Trump endorsed the idea of term limits on Monday, revealing that he met with bipartisan members of Congress to discuss the issue.

“I recently had a terrific meeting with a bipartisan group of freshman lawmakers who feel very strongly in favor of Congressional term limits,” Trump wrote on Twitter. “I gave them my full support and endorsement for their efforts”:

Trump vowed during the 2016 presidential campaign to support term limits as part of his promise to “drain the swamp.”

“If I’m elected president, I will push for a constitutional amendment to impose term limits on all members of Congress,” he said. “Decades of failure in Washington and decades of special-interest dealing must and will come to an end.”
