Trump breaks his promise by piling up debt

Published Feb 12, 2020.

While campaigning for the White House in 2016, the New York developer and TV star boasted he could eliminate the entire national debt “fairly quickly,” which he defined as eight years.

The national debt was $19 trillion back then. Today, it totals $23.3 trillion and continues to soar, according to the U.S. Treasury.

That’s a big promise broken — especially for our children and grandchildren, who will get stuck with the bill.
