So President Trump added 7 trillion to the debt. The U.S. budget deficit is expected to reach $3 trillion this year, according to the Congressional Budget Office, a 33% increase from its previous projection as it takes into account President Biden’s massive coronavirus stimulus plan. And that’s not counting the 5 trillion if Bidens two plans pass. But what about the Trump 7 trillion?
Fact Check.org a liberal fact checker says that Trump inherited almost 600 billion from Obama. And they say that 2.7 trillion were the tax cuts. That means over 3 trillion went to cover the COVID Pandemic. Pandemic spending that almost every single Democrat voted for.
When Obama added almost 10 trillion, there was no outcry from the left. Why was that? The deficit for the first half of the budget year, from October through March, was up from $743.5 billion in the year-ago period, to 1.7 trillion this year the Treasury Department said in April.
