Unfortunately it fell on deaf ears. Being critical of current events has been socially outlawed. Apparently we have to pick a side and defend it at all costs. Almost like we've never been burned before by a president.

Let me rephrase that, almost like every recent president didn't burn the whole platform they ran on.

And they created the environment of pander to win then do whatever you want. Luckily for them consequences are a thing of the past.

I can't like this... Can't we go back to the good ole days where our government would hemorrhage money at remarkable rates?

All kidding aside, I could see this being true, and I could see Trump trying his hardest to prove all his doubters wrong..

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!


Thank you!

I'm running out of patience today.

They'd have to buy it from China, though.

We can't sell them our debt.

It's not possible that Trump has reduced the debt by 12 Billion. Maybe he has slowed in the increase by 12 Billion, but that's technically not the same as reducing the debt. Either way it's irrelevant. Until Trump can get his tax plans passed, his budgets passed, his trade deals negotiated, and then we see what the outcomes are, we will have no idea what the effect of Trump's Presidency on the debt and economy will be.

has not computed here yet then US Debt Clock (Real-Time)

I've been watching this everyday. It has crept up to $19.978 Trillion (from $19,975,000,000,000) in about 5-6 days. It has only been steadily going up

Meh, your constant sarcastic shtick doesn't do much for me personally, it doesn't add anything of value in my opinion, but if that's your thing, then more power to you.

Now you're off to a different topic, one of the reliability of the report. Your initial reaction seemed to be spitballing how it was possible for the government to reduce debt... I explained economics 101 to you and, for whatever weight it holds, Macroeconomics was one of my minor degrees in college and I was close to double majoring in it but... by all means wait for someone more proficient than I am at explaining it in a way you'll understand and accept.

i read what what you said. makes sense...still does not really provide what he did and how he did it. the general outline of how it is possible sure. but not any facts on it.

then another member posts a link that says the debt is going up.

cant be both. its either going down or going up so which is a person to believe?

so yes, spend less than you bring in

im just wondering what did he spend less on? how did he bring more in?

it does not matter. dont bother answering...im getting ready to crash and this thread will be many pages in by the time i get back on here so i likely wont get back to it


appreciate it though

Up or down doesn't make it 'Trump' anyway. Those numbers are locked in under the Obama Presidency.

Furthermore, Day by Day shifts in the numbers don't mean jack poop any more than today's temperature in Gary Indiana defines the global climate.

Seeing how none of Trumps economic policies are even in effect the only way Trump gets credit is that it is happening under his watch. But everyone knows who the credit should go to.

Well look at the government balance sheets then.

The numbers are real apparently. Check the dates.
