Truth be told. No president is liable for the first year of his presidency because the economic policies for the year were established by the previous administration. Obama was the worst for our debt. However, Trump is still contributing at a high rate. At the moment, I do not see fiscal responsibility from any either political party candidates

Lmao 2009 is "obama years" but 2017 isn't "trump" years. Ya what ever dude

Trump is obviously a problem if you're doing as much as you can to expand Obama's years and reduce Trump's years

The data is correct for Obama’s term. The person posting the question used incorrect dates not data.

You need to take a closer look at the data in your article.

How about we use a little bit better comparison since you know... Trump's only been in office for 2 years and hasn't had to deal with the greatest recession since the great depression...

Obama's last two year's in office it went from 17.8 to 19.5, then under Trump it went from 19.5 to 21.5. now being that those were pretty similar economies (although it really depends on who you talk to being that apperently the country was on life support under Obama then January of 2017 it was resurrected) who do you think had a bigger issue with the debt?

Democrats didn’t give a wit about the deficit when it was Obama spending!

Key word being "deficit", Obama shrank. Debt continued to grow, and will now grow faster due to Trump's higher deficit.

Wrong....and the socialist agenda that is become popular on the left will bankrupt the US.

So you’re saying Trump is on track to surpass Obama’s debt. Yet he inherited a good economy and didn’t have a global meltdown down or failing industries to assist?

I’d say you’re right.

Did you even look at the numbers that I posted. Apparently not or you’re very very bad at math. Question: what is the correct answer (I want to know if you know) 1<3 or 4<3. Don’t burn up those brain cells OK🤣

As we examine the national debt simple math will tell us the true story.

The Obama years: 20.244 - 10.024 = 10.22/8 = 1.2775 trillion dollars on average per year during Obama’s eight years in office.

The Trump years: 21.978 - 20.244 = 1.734/2 = 867 billion dollars on average per year during Trump’s two years in office

So you see boys and girls on average President Obama increase the National Debt on average by an additional $410.5 billion per year over President Trump. So under President Trump the national debt is not decreasing but at least it’s slowing down.🤔

What everyone leaves out it debt to GDP ratios. Our GDP has grown dramatically since Trump took office so our ability to service the debt is improving. It’s still not nearly enough but in one of the articles you link to you will see that the US is not in the worst position worldwide and this is due to the GDP growth.
