When the GOP took over Congress in January 2015, the federal deficit was $439 billion. They immediately set to work doubling it. Budget deficit smashes $1 trillion mark, the highest in seven years When Trump was sworn in, the federal debt was $19.9 trillion. As of this moment: Trump: I will eliminate U.S. debt in 8 years This past fiscal year, Trump spent more than anyone in the history of the Universe. He exceeded Obama's worst year of spending by a trillion dollars. So much for being the party of small government. Before you try to claim it isn't Trump's fault for some reason, you should know that I will find your posts where you blamed Obama for every penny of the debt accrued on his watch. Before you try to say "Let me know when he's got more debt than Obama" bullshit hypocrisy, remember that you pseudocons started in on Obama's spending habit right at the beginning. You did not wait until he had beaten Bush's record. So i guess all you're left with is to blame darkies and Muslims.
