For the rest of his term, Trump plans to add $8.282T more to the federal debt, which will push the debt levels to about $30T in total. That represents a 41% increase from the $20.245T debt under the Obama administration.

Are we sure this is accurate....
I only ask because adding on 41% seems absolutely massive, how has this happened.
Yea, I'm not seeing this add up based off of the article, as pointed out by Dasman888.
I'm not thrilled with it rising at all, but it doesn't look as bleak as 41%.

Any lib got a free second to check my math?
Is there a reason you are repeating the OPs (accurate) math?
Donald Trump: As projected in the FY 2019 budget, Trump plans to add $8.282 trillion, a 41-percent increase from the $20.245 trillion debt at the end of Obama's last budget for FY 2017.
He will add almost as much in four years as Obama did in eight.
That would also make him the second-biggest contributor to the debt in history in just one term.
•FY 2021 - $1.119 trillion.
•FY 2020 - $1.198 trillion.
•FY 2019 - $1.225 trillion.
•FY 2018 - $1.233 trillion.
1.119 + 1.198 + 1.225 + 1.223 = 4.775....where is 8.282 ???....just add up the less than 1T amounts........119 + .198 + .225 +.233 = .775 + the 4T= $4.775 trillion
