“I’m the king of debt,” Donald Trump once said. Apparently, he wasn’t lying.
The U.S. Treasury Department reported today that the national debt has increased by $2 trillion ($2,000,000,000,000) since President Trump took office on January 20, 2017. To be fair, the president didn’t do it all by himself: He had the full cooperation of the Republicans who controlled Congress.
I celebrated by buying some U.S. Treasury notes.
