Something odd with some numbers compiled in an article about the National Debt.

According to the story, the Debt has actually been reduced since Trump took office Jan 20th.

Don't know if this is real.

Maybe some fancy bookwork done by the last Administration in anticipation of a Clinton Presidency?

Or is Trump this "good" ?

NUMBERS ARE IN: Trump SLASHES 12 BILLION in Debt IN HIS FIRST MONTH

Moreover, I remember a story where the media fawned all over baby black Jesus, because he saved us $1,000,000 in some BS publicity stunt.

In the time it took the press to write about it, Obama had spent another $5 billion or so. But now we get REAL fiscal responsibility, and not the “Affirmative Action” version.

According to Treasury Direct ,

On January 20th, the day of the Trump Inauguration, the US Debt stood at $19,947 billion. A month later, on February 21, the US Debt load stood at $19,935 billion. That represents 0.1 percent less.

I bet it had a lot to do with all the hands Obama had in Americas pockets. When he left most ceased to exist or Trump stopped them. I will take a closer look though.

if true then i like to know how its possible. what could he possibly have done?

then i would like to see the figures on what his mara largo trip and his other 2 trips cost. then add the 500k a week or whatever the figure was on the cost of protecting melania and baron thus far.

would be nice to see all the numbers broken down


but yeah, i really dont see how he could have cut 12 bill out in a month

im interested to hear though

I see they do 2008.

Could part of those numbers be Tarp and the Automotive bailout?

Good looks like he didn't touch what Obama started back in December.

They have been buying up US debt lately....

About $12 billion actually....



And Russia boosted its Treasury position by $12 billion, a move that may raise eyebrows given favorable comments that Trump and Russian leader Vladimir Putin have made about each other.

the source material is # though
explains nothing which is why i am asking

i dont really expect an answer

i guess i should get to work trying to dispute a simple spreadsheet with nothing but figures

thats not evidence/proof of anything

Well Trump did save $2 Billion with just one tweet.

As long as no national tragedies occur, he has my pass to play golf at Mar-A-Lago all he wants so long as he gets # done.

so getting the cost of a jet down equals cutting national debt?
i thought it was just getting a cheaper jet

thats great he gets your pass. still though

its been said he saved 12 billion in a month

the other side is what has he cost in a month? not an outrageous question

Really? It's not rocket science... you simply SPEND LESS THAN YOU BRING IN. I'm not ridiculing you over the confusion, as the vast majority of our elected officials seems as befuddled by how to reduce debt as you are.

Debt doesn't equal the amount spent (unless you're Bush or Obama and do all of your spending against the nation's credit line). Debt is Income minus expenditures. Either the US government has brought in 12 Billion more than it spent or it spent 12 billion less than it brought in. Whichever it was, go team!
