Default In First 2 Months in Office: Trump Reduced Debt by $100 Billion – Obama Increased Deb

It's amazing what happens when you drain the swamp and get peeps with a sound business mind in the WH instead of your typical political insiders who care more 'bout lobbyists and their pocketbooks than the country.

In two months Trump has already proven more effective than Obama did in eight years.

In First 2 Months in Office: Trump Reduced Debt by $100 Billion - Obama Increased Debt by $400 Billion

Quote:
President Trump has cut the US Debt burden by over $100 billion and 0.5% in the first two months since his inauguration!
Quote:
By comparison, under President Obama, the US Debt burden increased by more than $400 billion after his inauguration through March 19th 2009, his first two months in office.

1. The economy was in a far worse condition when Obama took office, did you already forget the massive global recession we were under? He left office with a much healthier economy and labor market.

2. Doesn't say what Trump did in the first two months to cut the debt by $100 billion.

"Considering that Trump hasn’t enacted any fiscal legislation, it’s a bit of a stretch for him to take credit for any changes in debt levels," Dan Mitchell, a libertarian economist and senior fellow at the Cato Institute, told us.

Why Donald Trump's tweet about national debt decrease in his first month is highly misleading | PolitiFact

Not really. It is the function of the executive to disperse the checks. At the pleasure of the Administration. Appaerently it displeases the President to spend money we don't have.

And we don't. (see Below)

By this time into Obama's term, I believe he had not only spent more, he borrowed $871 Billion for his shovel ready Stimulus.


Trump has a problem spending right now, If you knew why you could have jumped on it as the reason. But you don't. I asked you earlier and you missed it.

It was always the news for two weeks leading up to the fear mongering press,,, the GOP is gonna shut down the government.

Obama had barricades up at the WWII Memorial ( a free Federal park).

So what is it that our President could do last Wednesday but could not do last Friday? Why has Rachel Maddow and all the others not brought this fact to your attention????



Here's a hint...; It's more important that Trump's tax returns and it involves China. And prolly Japan and The Arabic nations

Look I'm not going to play a child's cat and mouse game. Either you come out with it or not. I really don't care either way. It is just a message board.

The answer is at the top of the page in Post #1

We hit the debt ceiling, and no one noticed.

That means the President cannot borrow money.

Sur-ya did.

I guess since the media didn't hype the crisis as they did with Obama and the GOP reluctance, they now have to make up something. Accounting tricks, yeah that's it.

Here's a novel idea. We don't have the money, so don't spend it. Or is that a nefarious accounting trick?
