Donald Trump promised to eliminate debt in 8 years. So far he is wrong-headed and directionless as he is increasing debt remorselessly.
Dem's block all attempts at reducing spending.
It is always the other sides fault...which is why it always gets worse
Oh those assholes in the GOP are just as guilty of spending like there's no tomorrow, don't get me started on them.
And yet you vote for nothing but the GOP

Donald Trump promised to eliminate debt in 8 years. So far he is wrong-headed and directionless as he is increasing debt remorselessly.

Donald Trump described the debt as a time bomb and he is priming the bomb.

Not one cent has been spent on infrastructure, which was one of Donald Trump's key election policy issues.

"Nobody is a fiscal conservative anymore," especially Donald Trump who is now considering reducing payroll taxes which will further inflate the budget deficit.

Trump's government spends nearly as much paying interest on national debt as it spends on nation's children

TRUMP'S GOVERNMENT SPENDS NEARLY AS MUCH PAYING INTEREST ON NATIONAL DEBT AS IT SPENDS ON NATION'S CHILDREN
BY NICOLE GOODKIND ON 8/13/19 AT 7:26 PM EDT

President Donald Trump signed a budget deal last week that will add another $1.7 trillion to the national debt, according to the Committee for a Responsible Federal Budget. Despite promising to wipe out the national debt in eight years during his presidential campaign, the president has added an estimated $4.1 trillion to the country's debt within his first two and a half years in office.
Interest paid on the increasing national debt has surged, already surpassing the total spent all last year.
Net interest paid on the national debt has jumped up nearly $20 billion to $343 billion in the first 10 months of this fiscal year, already surpassing the $325 billion spent all of last year.
For comparison, in 2018, the federal government spent about $375 billion on children under the age of 19, according to the Urban Institute's Kids' Share report.
Projections find that the federal government spends about $1,200 per American on interest.
The president defended his actions on Twitter, claiming that there would be time to cut the budget later, after the 2020 election. "Budget Deal is phenomenal for our Great Military, our Vets, and Jobs, Jobs, Jobs!" he wrote. "Two year deal gets us past the Election. Go for it Republicans, there is always plenty of time to CUT!"

But fiscal hawks warn that time is running out. "This deal ignores our large and growing fiscal imbalances and is a step in the wrong direction for our economy. We're already heading towards trillion dollar annual deficits, so adding more to the debt is the last thing we need," wrote Michael Peterson, CEO of the Peter G. Peterson Foundation.
Maya MacGuineas, president of the Committee for a Responsible Federal Budget, issued a stern warning to politicians on both side of the aisle. "Going forward, neither side can claim a mantle of responsible governing, and few have any moral ground to stand on—this is a bipartisan failure," she wrote of the budget deal. "With the national debt rising to historic levels—soon to overtake the size of our entire economy and beyond—and with our largest programs, Social Security and Medicare, spinning toward insolvency, our nation's answer is to make the problem worse at every turn."

Rush Limbaugh, a conservative shock jock and friend of the president, said last month that debt was no longer a priority for Republicans, and that it never had been. "Nobody is a fiscal conservative anymore," he said on his radio show. "All this talk about concern for the deficit and the budget has been bogus for as long as it's been around."

The OP is lies and nonsense. You cannot know the deficit until all revenues have come in, and people are getting hired every day. And besides, Obama rakes up more DEBT than all presidents before him COMBINED and I don't remember you crying when that happened.

You vote Democrat, because you are a Gamma. Men vote republicans, at least they know what is correct, while democrats were fighting a war against austerity during Obama's time.

Barry Hussein Sotoro Obama increased the federal debit by 74% and unemployment was in double digits while he told Americans that good factory jobs were gone forever. Make America great again. Trump is the only logical choice among the gaggle of democrats in the clown car.
You’ve been listening too much of Hannity. Read post #22 to loosen up some of these ignorance.

And we are still waiting for that .......... Make America Great Again ..... when it’s going to happen.

Again, DEMOCRATS own the House, which means they own SPENDING, they own, the PURSE STRINGS, they own the BUDGET, which means THEY have owned the continuous DEFICIT SPENDING since they won in 2018....

What have they done with it / about it?

Continued to make carrying out Obama's failed coup attempt a high priority, adding millions more in bogus investigations and hundreds of hours of wasted Congressional time in seeking Impeachment off of their butt-hurt & Hate....

Continued facilitation of criminal illegal invasion of the US, preventing existing US law from being carried out, continuing to violate existing federal law by operating federal law-violating Sanctuary Cities, and aiding and abetting crimes committed against US citizens by illegal foreigners they are helping to annex the United States...to include placing the economic cost of in-processing, housing, medical care, feeding, welfare, etc.. all of these criminals on US Middle Class tax payers and adding it to the very deficit they are acting like they care about....

Continuing to plot, promise, and plan to add TRILLIONS of dollars in taxes and additional US debt to reward these illegal criminals with 'free' medical care, education, housing, food, etc....

Continuing to plot, promise, and plan to add TRILLIONS of dollars in taxes and additional US debt to give Americans 'Free' college tuition...

Continuing to plot, promise, and plan to add TRILLIONS of dollars in taxes and additional US debt to upgrade or rebuild every US building in the US to Global Warming standards, eliminate the Internal Combustion engine, and to 'win the war on cow farts'...

If they think any of these 2020 Socialist Democrat platform agenda items will reduce spending / the deficit then It seems the extreme level of TDS / HATRED for the President has overridden the Left's common sense / hypocritical BS meter...

When a snowflake, whose Party's 2020 nominees' platform agenda calls for so much debt addition that Democrats who wrote some of them say it would collapse the US govt / economy if they actually try to implement their ideas, tells a Conservative that their party will reverse / reduce the current administration's spending / debt addition.....

"So you don't care about spending..."
