The Debt Doesn't Bother Trump

Trump is reportedly not worried about a massive US debt crisis as he'll be out of office by then

Donald Trump campaigned on reducing the federal debt, but sources told The Daily Beast that the president does not talk about it now.

President Donald Trump is not worried about setting the US up for a massive debt crisis after his presidency as he "won't be here" when it erupts.

Sources close to the presidency told The Daily Beast that Trump has repeatedly shrugged off any concerns about the rising national debt because he will not be here when the national debt reaches a critical point.

Trump told senior officials in a 2017 briefing that economic data suggests this point would come after he sat a second term in office and addressed charts and graphics by saying: "Yeah, but I won't be here," a source that witnessed the comment told The Daily Beast.

US debt currently sits around $21 trillion, and in a few years the US could be paying more in interest on that debt than on the military or Medicare.

We live in a time in which decent and otherwise sensible people are surrendering too easily to the hectoring of morons or extremists.

Give the incoming Administration of mess ... seems to be a familiar tune for the GOP.
