Deficit hawking was a thing when the debt was still modest enough to wrangle and keep under control. Now it's simply grown too large.

Also there's always a Tweet:

Today's job report is not a good sign & we could be facing another recession. No real job growth. We need over 300K new jobs a month.
3:49 PM - 7 Dec 2012
Keep in mind that this "not a good sign" report from Dec 2012 saw 7,000 more jobs than Dec 2017.
And of course, anything less than 300k a month is subpar by Trump standards. Total loser! Sad!

For me it was 2012, when it passed GDP. That was the end game as far as the debt ever being actually paid went. The US had technically been driven to insolvency... now we're just piling onto the credit cards before filing for bankruptcy.
