Dang man, at this rate, he won't beat Obama's national debt high score. Might want to take a look at those numbers. Trump is not at pace with Obama.

Nah the Eagle and the Bear need to to unite as predicted by Nostradamus. They need to seize all the central banks and pay off all debts owed by every country and start anew.


Wouldn't it be easier to just forgive the debt? Kinda like Trump did when he was a business person?

It is owed mostly to us, so I'm cool if they don't pay me back. Just reset to Zero. Debt gone.

Or push the payments out to 3019. A thousand years to pay = small payments. It's really not that complicated. We pull the strings...

The funny thing is, there IS a 'Deep State', and it is US.

Really? Bush had the bailout plan for the banks. Get your history straight.

Obama helped bail out the banksters that wrecked the lives of what millions.

Wow, I vote that we execute him, and his family, in public, at noon, this Wednesday, live streamed, on YouTube.


Make it pay-per-view and we could eliminate the debt.

At no time has Trump attempted to cease fighting in the Middle East. His drum thumping egoistic prattle has done nothing to reduce the amount spent on war.

So what are you actually talking about?

This is how you fix the debt, getting chronically unemployed off welfare roles and back into the workforce.
80% of the jobs Obama created were govt jobs, tough to bring down debt when you're expanding govt.
80% of Trump's job creation is private sector, including 37,000 manufacturing jobs last month alone.
A 700% increase over anything Obama ever even dreamed of.
Remember Obama saying manufacturing was dead?
Looks like Trump is necromancer supreme.

More like Obama's priority was bailing out the bankster's that designed the collapse. Did nothing about the oil speculators that turned it into a 1-2 punch when gas was artificially driven up over $5 a gallon right as the rest of the economy was at the greatest point of freefall.



Don't forget about how the Junior Senator from Chicago played a massive role in lowering the standards that kept Fannie Mae and Freddie Mac in check.

Obama played a massive role I the collapse of the economy before he was even President. A facet that people dont talk about. Ever.

The US federal government collects 3 trillion USD in tax a year and spends 4 trillion USD a year. So the US government must add 1 trillion USD debt a year in order to spend 1 trillion USD more than what it can collect in tax.

It's a good thing 29 Zumwalt were cancelled. But in order to buy 10 Ford and 500 F-35 that needs 800 billion USD defense budget a year. So that needs more debt in order to be able to spend that much.

One way to reduce debt is to cut defense spending to only 100 billion for 10 years straight. But China is making like 100 J-20 a year the US can't afford to do that. So the only answer is more debt.

Both Obammer & Trumpy know the white birth rate is so low, that folks might as well spend now....our black, brown, muslim grandkids get stuck with the bill.

No worries for whitey? What have they got too lose. What have you got to lose?? Spend.
Bam bam just a greedy Quisling.

The only way to clear that debt is to declare sovereign bankruptcy.
Don't know how this country is still able to get loans. So weird.

He doesn’t write law. Only can pass or reject. What did you want him to do, shut down the government by rejecting a spending bill. Hey, wait a minute? Isn’t the government shutdown with the Democratics acting like it’s a crime.....,.

Because other countries are investing in the weakening of the USA.

Oh goodness. So stupid. Obama spent 120 million on travel over 8 years. Trump spent 10 million his first year. The funny part about your outrage about the golf cart rentals is that he would gladly not charge the government for it but that's illegal. Have to pay the market rate for it.

Trump is donating his salary. Has done so every single quarter. The man is working for free. Yet you guys want to blast him for doing the same as any other president or really, the same as any other person (taking vacation). Get a grip. No one cares about the presidents vacation costs.

What weakening? The one where our military is stronger than at any point in the last 10 years? Or the one where our economy is defying the global slowdown?
