That's my estimate, give or take a few hundred thousand.

Pushing $28 trillion as we speak.....Pretty staggering.

What's almost funny, is most people are clueless about how much a trillion dollars actually is....
now that the GOP is out of commission they are starting to worry about fiscal responsiveness. LOL.

Omg, you didn´t care the past four years.
We have always been fiscally responsible.
Looks like it becomes more and more expensive to run your country. That actually can´t continue. You will have to default at some point. And that will be a mess.

What have you been talking about, Biden has only been Potus for 1.5 days, and tramp before. He caused the debt, he was on his way to bankrupt the US.

During the 2016 presidential campaign, Republican candidate Donald Trump promised he would eliminate the nation’s debt in eight years.1 Instead, his budget estimates showed that he would actually add at least $8.3 trillion, increasing the U.S. debt to $28.5 trillion by 2025.2 However, the national debt may reach that figure much sooner. When President Trump took office in January 2017, the national debt stood at $19.9 trillion. In October 2020, the national debt reached a new high of $27 trillion.

That's an increase of almost 36% in less than four years.

What's hilarious is that the top 1% have 43% of the wealth and they don't pay their fair share.

You apparently misunderstood. Angelo was silent about the massive debt added by Trump and Biden is just one day in office he comes up with the debt. Trump is Debt-King and Obama his vice. Lets see how Bidens tax plan will work out.

Some more tax cuts for the billionaires will have that debt paid off in no time.

Thing is one should look over the link in the OP more closely.

For example, there's a tab for the "time machine" function and it goes back at four year increments starting from 2016 to 2000, then a couple ten year ones back to 1990 and 1980. Not quite as large of displays, but one thing that pops out is how in the Obama years; 2008-2016, MaObama managed to more than double the National Debt, giving him a 100+% increase compared to Trumps 36% mentioned above.

Perhaps Trump should have declined to sign off on the budget that Congress give him last year, but then the usual suspects would have whined about the guv'mint shutdown it would have caused.

Another part that the link shows is down towards the bottom, the "unfunded liabilities" which currently are at $159+ Trillion (that's in addition to the National Debt). Much of this is Social Security and Medicare which are starting to grow exponentially as the Boomers age and tap into it.

Bad as things might look deficit and debt wise for the USA, that foreign debt clock tab at the upper left shows many other nations are in a worse state;

Too much of the world is running on borrowed against the future generations.
Not such a good idea.

Well repubs keep handing out tax cuts so nobody cares about debt. Will be too late when anyone does.

Well dems do a fairly good job at that as well, especially to their preferred monopolies and in form of subsidies, etc.
