It is quite sad to see the mainstream media not report on anything that doesn’t suit the fulfillment of their agenda. They only report things that will benefit their cause.
When President Trump set this massive record, it left the media in shock. Not many in the media are even talking about this
The US federal debt has proved one of the most challenging things to take care of for any president of the United States.
When President Trump took office on January 20th, 2017, the US federal debt was at 19.9 trillion dollars. (Look Where it is Now)
President Trump has reached an incredible milestone in his presidency by decreasing the US federal debt by 100 billion dollars, according to Treasury Direct.
This means President Trump has longest and largest decrease of the US federal debt in the history of the nation!
Since 1997, The US Government Accountability Office (GAO) has been performing audits on the US debt. What is fascinating is that the federal debt has increased every year since the beginning of the audits that began 20 years ago.
Many people believed that Bill Clinton and George W. Bush were the ones responsible for the debt cuts that drastic. However, House speaker Newt Gingrich made then-President Clinton agree on a balanced budget.
While they had managed to cut the debt on a short term basis, the overall federal debt had actually grown larger. There is only one time where something like what President Trump had done that even comes close.
The one other instance where the US federal debt decreased was during Eisenhower’s presidency in 1957 and 1958. He managed to cut the debt by two billion dollars, while President Trump accomplished this in only a half a year.
While this should be huge news for both political parties, Democrats don’t seem to be celebrating. Perhaps if it were Barrack Obama or Hillary Clinton who accomplished this, it would make national headlines.
