National Debt Since Trump Took Office
At first, it seemed Trump was lowering the debt. It fell $102 billion in the first six months after Trump took office.19 On January 20th, the day Trump was inaugurated, the debt was $19.9 trillion. On July 30, it was $19.8 trillion. But it was not because of anything he did. Instead, it was because of the federal debt ceiling.
On September 8, 2017, Trump signed a bill increasing the debt ceiling.20 Later that day, the debt exceeded $20 trillion for the first time in U.S. history. On February 9, 2018, Trump signed a bill suspending the debt ceiling until March 1, 2019.21 It leapt to $22 trillion. In July 2019, Trump suspended the debt ceiling until after the 2020 presidential election.22 The debt soon rose to $23 trillion. Trump has overseen the fastest increase in the debt of any president.
Trump's Fiscal Year 2021 budget projects the debt would increase $4.8 trillion during his first term.23
That's as much as Obama added while fighting a recession. Trump has not fulfilled his campaign promise to cut the debt. Instead, he's done the opposite.
0.045 X 330,000,000 is = 14,850,000 Dead. Guess technically Trump is right!?! "I heard we had the best mortality rate." Highest meaning "best"? Sadly shaking my head...fortunately about 70% of us get it and know who is lying. Wear your mask, socially distance, wash your hands and we might be able to save some lives and get through this...like some other countries are doing. Be well.
