Donald Trump laid out his vision for the first 100 days in office of his potential presidency— and that list was pretty long.

"I'm not a politician and have never wanted to be a politician. ... But when I saw the trouble our country was in, I couldn't stand by any longer," Trump said Saturday.

During a speech in Gettysburg, Pennsylvania, the Republican nominee rattled off how he'd address corruption, immigration, tax reform and several other issues.

"A constitutional amendment to impose term limits on all members of Congress," he said, reiterating a plan he revealed early in the week to limit all members of the House of Representatives to no more than three terms, or six years, and senators to a total of two terms, or 12 years in office.

"We're going to suspend immigration from terror-prone regions where vetting cannot safely occur," he added.

Many of the policies Trump talked about Saturday are part of plans already outlined on his campaign website.

Trump also doubled down on his tax reform plan, saying he'd enact the Middle Class Tax Relief and Simplification Act, which he says is designed to help American workers and add at least 25 million jobs "through massive tax reduction."
