https://www. Newsweek. Com/donald-trump-national-debt-increase-3-trillion-first-three-years-presidency-1483660

The worst president of all time, Donald pet rubber ducky Trump, Is at it again.
According to Newsweek:
Nearly four years after then-presidential candidate Donald Trump said he would eliminate the federal debt in eight years, The deficit has since risen by more than 16 percent under his presidency.

On Tuesday, Attorney George Conway, A frequent Trump critic and husband of White House Special Counsel Kellyanne Conway, Pointed out that three years into Trump's first term as president, The national debt increased by $3 trillion, Bringing it to over $23 trillion now. Conway cited figures from the National Debt Tweets in his tweet.
George Conway
In other news, Yesterday was the third anniversary of @realDonaldTrump"s inauguration. In the three years he"s been president (during two of which his party controlled both houses of Congress) the national debt has increased by
(DDO won't take the number)

As a Republican presidential candidate, Trump said he would eliminate the national debt in eight years, Which was $19 trillion in 2016, According to The Washington Post. Asked by journalist Bob Woodward if that would involving raising taxes to ease the problem, Trump responded: "I don't think I'll need to. The power is trade. Our deals are so bad. "

But as of January, President Trump signed $4. 7 trillion more into the debt until 2029, According to the Committee for a Responsible Federal Budget (CRFB).

At a private dinner with wealthy donors last Friday, Just days before the third anniversary of his inauguration, The president brushed off critics amid concerns of his spending and growing national debt. "Who the hell cares about the budget? We're going to have a country, " he said, As reported by The Washington Post.

The national debt has increased significantly under both the Bush and Obama administrations, Increasing about 101 percent from the end of Clinton's administration to the end of Bush's. Republicans criticized Obama for doubling debt by nearly $9 trillion.

According to CRFB President Maya McGuineas, The deficit would have increased under Trump, Even if he hadn't signed any legislation. But the new policies he signed beginning in 2017 reflect further spending, Which is unusual during a period of economic growth.

"Just like the economic performance isn't totally attributable to the president, The existing policies that are baked into the cake don't reflect Trump's initiative, " MacGuineas told Newsweek. "The laws he's signed, Though, Do. And in this case, He's signed into law two major tax cuts--the one that everybody notices. "

The two pieces of legislation that added the most to the national debt are the Tax Cuts and Jobs Act (TCJA) and the 2018 and 2019 Bipartisan Budget Acts (BBA), According to CRFB. In addition to these, The ACA Tax Repeal and other legislation--which included disaster relief, Emergency spending, And ACA tax delays, Signed in December 2019--added a combined total of about $665 billion.

MacGuineas also said that laws Trump has signed have increased spending, Without revenue increasing enough to maintain it, Creating more debt than expected. "There were a number of increases that were already on track that came from our growing healthcare and retirement cost. But President Trump massively exacerbated that problem with the laws he signed, Which included creating lower revenues and higher spending. And obviously, Because of the laws of math, That means we're left with much larger borrowing, " she said. "What's unusual is that during a period of economic expansion the borrowing would be increasing from year to year, But that's what's been happening under President Trump. "

The increased spending elevated the deficit. The TCJA act has added $1. 8 trillion to the debt and can add another trillion dollars, If tax cuts are extended past their 2025 expiration.

During his 2016 presidential campaign, Trump not only planned to eliminate the national debt, But also planned to balance the national budget and eliminate budget deficit. However, The increased spending with less income has kept deficits high. A Congressional Budget Office projection predicts $1 trillion deficits annually from 2020 to 2028.

"It's really unusual to be borrowing this much, When the economy is this strong. In fact, We've never had a deficit this large relative to GDP, When the economy was growing this strongly, " MacGuineas said. "Deficits have their role, But at this point in the business cycle there is no need for the borrowing that we are undertaking. "

Both BBAs added a total $2. 2 trillion, Mainly by increasing defense and non-defense spending caps through 2021.

When asked if there was anything that can be done to make improvements to the debt, MacGuineas said much can be done with political will. "We're going to need to raise revenues and slow the growth of spending, " she said. " That can look like repealing the tax cut, Higher tax rates, Or new taxes like the carbon tax. It can look like making fixes to our retirement and healthcare system. It can put back in spending caps like we had on defense or domestic discretionary. Frankly the problem is so large that we need to be looking at all those areas. What it really takes is honesty and political will and leadership. "

You naughty little boy. Your brains should be paddled into pulverized silk with your miss-trust of woe is thou beholdeth my pet rubber ducky grabbeth at my woody attention span as it hits the hickory-dick-dock of my you know where areas sprouting cottage cheese whiz at electric elephants wheezing laughs during Donald t**tie milk Trump, Easily the worst president of all time home invasions where he gets the clap on his uterus to help him with his cause to once again bring in the defunct glam rock tutelage that his undies have been missing.
Now the Clinton mitten bitten more than her greaser hand grenade weight loss program BOOM could chew with her skunk perfume chewables. But fear thee not! Yea! It is the sy-phillis of those in breed from the testicle spotted hair remover that is those where the red barn grows onto an unflinching groin pull peckerwurst. "Pop goes the shaving cream! "
"Do your roids hang low? Can you tie em in a knot, Can you cry them in a blow? "
Her eyes melted into my pants and the womb seems to cry, Bullet train of rubber hairs is perpetual invulnerability, Smile at the plastic sins, Slip deeper into relaxed nausea,
Except for Bollywood film entertainment where hopefully Parasite, A true masterpiece will win best pic among the rest of the sludge even though Marriage Story was great but Once Upon a Time in Bollywood = BARF, The Irishman = a dogmeat's chewtoy, Fart VS Ferrari = fake plastique granny windblows, Joker = a bile sac of lard, 1917 = BORING so much so that my stiffy grew an iffy, Little Women = braindead kewpie dol that uses fiberglass con-dumbs, Jo Jo Rabbit = grabbit at that you know what. . . Nah a foreign film has never won best pic. Time for a change? Not with that crap at the helm. Films are just not anywhere near as good as they were 30 or even 40 years ago and beyond. Thankfully streaming services, Unlike Netflix, Are preserving them.

Oh what rabid rabbi who's birth control casserole is NOT going to agree with you because I wholeheartedly must state and say that this country because of Donald possum feather Trump, Easily the worst president of all time is dooming this country, Putting this country to war, Debt, OPPRESSION, Believes that the world's biggest issue, Namely global warming is a hoax, Is out there for himself, Basically to win at all costs just so he's at the center of attention, Has sooooooo many things in common with the unproven storybook character god of print only bible even though it claims it is a "christian but lies through the butt hole that humans call an A$$. It's not hard to figure out.

What will happen after Trump? Well the only thing that is worse is Pence, So things WILL get bettwhore.

Oh and btw, You schmuckdumb you make the fatal miss-steak that supposed christians do because you CAN'T READ. I didn't compose this article. It's an article composed by Newsweek you dildo breath. Oh and btw, Trump, The soft boiled turnip beer topping for your hair, NONTHING of what he claims are his policies, But are of those who came before him and are of those who gave him advice. There's no possible way the idiot can learn the recipe for boiling water while strapping on a battery powered easy bake oven.

Yes, Australia is burning and vaccine love Trump is not doing one god damned f--king thing about it to help. And I 100% bet yah anything that once either everything is burned to a cinder, Or the fires are POOF gone out, This supermassive event will no longer be in the news when it damn right is a requirement that it needs to be. 1 billion animals dead. Gone. And true maggots actually think and believe for a quadrillionth of a second that there's a god/ Try harder people that believe.

Really though, Who cares a flying hoot over my head, Oh please snuff me out, About economics?

NO ONE CARES about some retarded 11 digit number that has NO RELEVANCE to anything. . . . Like the GODS. . . . . The "NATIONAL DEBT" is a HOAX. . . It is used like the ABRAHAMIC COMIC BOOK GODS as a scapegoat TOOL for POWER and CONTROL nothing more. . .

TRUMP like all the other HUMANS of EARTH will FADE away and be marginalized going forward just as all the EMPERORS, KINGS, QUEENS, And other humans with retarded LABELS ATTACHED TO THEM have been over the ages. . . . SO WHAT!

You. . . YOU PATHETIC IMBECILE who ACTS like the DEBT NUMBER has a REAL EFFECT on your ability to EXIST and THRIVE
till you drop dead like everyone else wiil eventually do. . . So go back to YOUR TOILET and WORRY about it. . . And when the
TRUTH of the present MONETARY and RELIGIOUS systems are reavealed for what they TRULY ARE. . = TOOLS used to HYPNOTIZE and BRAINWASH weak minded FOOLS like you to weep and become both MENTALLY and PHYSICALLY ILL. .

Like why don't YOU go to the nearest HOSPITAL EMERGENCY ROOM and beg for assistance with your DEBT PSYCHOSIS. . .

NURSE! . . . . . . . NURSE help me i'm suffering horribly. . . The national Debt is beyond CONTROL and I am losing my mind and
life over it. . . . Give me DRUGS. . . To alleviate the BURDEN. . . . OH GOD. . . I pray for SALVATION and surrender my mind and life to the CHURCH. . . Only GOD can reduce the DEBT and save HUMANITY. . . . HELP! HELP i'm drowning in desperation. . . .
I can't think, Can't work, Can't eat, Can't sleep. . . . Woe is ME. . And the world. . . The DEBT is beyond control. . . Aaaaaahhhhhh. . .

This is YOU! A pathetic brainwashed slave drone destined to DIE in disbelief over the SAD NATIONAL DEBT HOAX. . .
POOR. . . BACKWARDS BOZO. . . . So sad. . . PRAY. . . . Fall on the floor and beg like a dog for JESUS to return and eliminate the
DEBT. . . . . And when HE RETURNS? The JEWS will again condemn him and collude to have him EXECUTED as a FALSE GOD. . .

Then the CHRISTIANS will incite a WAR and the ALLAH GOD lunatics will gladly agree DEATH to the INFIDEL. . . It is the WILL
OF ALLAH. . . And the world gets its END OF DAYS! Just like the COMIC BOOK BILBLE SAYS. . . . This is what is in store going
forward. . . . The DEBT + the fake ABRAHAMIC COMIC BOOK GOD psychopaths will destroy all life on EARTH. . . Over MONEY
and GOD. . . Two human inventions designed as TOOLS for POWER and CONTROL. . . EXTINCTION GUARANTEED!

NO DOUBT. . When the NUKES are launched there will be more money to build more than ever before till all HUMANITY
is vaporized. . . . A fitting END to these pathetic and easily BRAINWASHED into SELF EXTINCTION human slave drones

@anc2006 - I kind of have to use the "title as a title", Otherwise that would be slightly plagiarizing. I took a 2-semester class on plagiarizing. Granted, It was a while back and I often wonder how much of it is true unto today considering that it was so far back. But I have no reason to doubt it.
Now you are right, When I use articles like these, Especially when they come from such a prominent source, Then, Of course, The article is going to be as real as real can possibly ever get and thus irrefutable. If people want to grovel, Grin, And shrug and state that this or other debates like these are not valid debates, That's entirely their problem in which they will have to deal with, That is of course IF they should choose to deal with it. Gotta go for now.

Also, Backwardseden, You should use the title not as title, But as a fact used within the debate. This is irrefutable. Jeez, And I wonder why most of your debates doesn't get accepted. They don't want to accept something that is so true it is barely a debate anymore.
