President Trump has had many accomplishments in his first 100 days. They are focusing on Obamacare not being repealed and replaced, the border wall not being built, the tax reform plan not being announced yet. Realistically, these are all long-term things and it is extremely difficult to get all of them done in the first 100 days. It’s well known the media ignores Trump’s accomplishments. But there is one big accomplishment for Trump that the media is completely ignoring. He has reduced the national debt by $100 billion in the first 100 days. Yep, that’s billion with a B. Actually we’re a few days shy of 100, but who’s counting? Instead they are just looking to focus on everything he does wrong.
Here is a hit piece by USA Today where they claim that the government may shut down this Friday if Trump doesn’t come up with a bill to keep it going.
Congress returns Monday with just five days left to keep the government from shutting down, and President Trump is adding to the pressure by demanding money for a Southwest border wall and other controversial programs that threaten a bipartisan deal.
Lawmakers passed a stop-gap spending bill in December to fund federal agencies through midnight next Friday. Congressional leaders are now scrambling to reach a bipartisan compromise on new legislation to keep the money flowing through fiscal 2017, which ends on Sept. 30.
It was reported on Fox News that President Trump’s Budget Director will not say for sure whether or not President Trump will mandate money for a border wall during this week’s meeting with Congress.
White House budget director Mick Mulvaney declined to say Sunday whether President Trump will insist Congress include money for his border wall in a spending bill or risk a government shutdown later this week.
While the media is eager to tell you about all of these things they are completely passing on telling you about how President Trump has reduced the national debt by $100 billion. Take a look.
If you need some perspective on this, we can help you with that. During Obama’s first 3 months in office the national debt grew by $560 billion. Take a look.
The extreme difference in debt between the two presidents is something that absolutely should be reported on. While President Trump was able to get in there and immediately started reducing the national debt, Obama was able to increase it by over half a trillion. The difference is remarkable!
