    Another trillion isn't even worth starting a fresh thread about any more.

    It is becoming an annual thing.



    Trump wants to beat Obama at everything.

    Since the 2016 presidential campaign, Donald Trump’s aides and advisers have tried to convince him of the importance of tackling the national debt.

    Sources close to the president say he has repeatedly shrugged it off, implying that he doesn’t have to worry about the money owed to America’s creditors—currently about $21 trillion—because he won’t be around to shoulder the blame when it becomes even more untenable.


    The friction came to a head in early 2017 when senior officials offered Trump charts and graphics laying out the numbers and showing a “hockey stick” spike in the national debt in the not-too-distant future. In response, Trump noted that the data suggested the debt would reach a critical mass only after his possible second term in office.

    Yeah, but I won’t be here,” the president bluntly said, according to a source who was in the room when Trump made this comment during discussions on the debt.
    But as we always should note- it is Congress which determines spending and taxes and deficits, not the President.

    That is an absolute fact. But a President signs those padded bills.

    ...and to nearly shut down the government because it didn't spend enough.
