For the first time since 1942, the U.S. Debt has GONE DOWN!
- During the 8 years that George W. Bush was president, the U.S. Debt INCREASED by $5.8 Trillion.
- During the 8 years that Barack H. Obama was president, the U.S. Debt INCREASED by $9 Trillion.
When Donald J. Trump took office, the U.S. Debt stood at a staggering $19.947 Trillion.
Today, after just two months under Trump’s leadership, it has DECREASED to $19.919 Trillion.
That works out to $49 Billion reduction PER MONTH.
