Most congress's have offered up a repeal of this amendment.

Harry Reid did it twice if I recall correctly.

It never goes anywhere however.

Its funny, democrats really seem to want this since they are usually the ones trying to get it done. They offered it twice under Bush I believe.

Two things:
1. At 32% popularity, he won't even see a nomination.
2. An impeached president won't even see a nomination

Donald Trump would be starting his third term at age 78. That's older than Ronald Reagan would have been at the start of his third term of office.

I've got no problem with its repeal, regardless of who is president.

I prefer the Founders original idea of one seven-year term.

It gives them enough time to finish their policies and removes the campaigning waste of time in the middle.

Now if we were talking about extending sentencing for acts of treason and colluding with an enemy of the US to usurp our electoral process, I'm all for it. But, a Turd term for a turd? No way!
