Donald Trump says he wants congressional term limits of six years for House members and 12 years for the Senate.

Trump outlined his term limits ideas Tuesday as part of his ongoing emphasis on a proposed federal ethics overhaul.

His vice presidential running mate also mentions Trump’s ethics proposals. But Mike Pence didn’t mention term limits at all Tuesday during multiple stops in North Carolina.

The Indiana governor happens to be a former member of Congress himself. He served 12 years in the House, twice as long as what his boss now says is appropriate.
