The left is on a rampage these days, and it seems anything will set them off. In fact, they’ve proven just that by bashing President Donald Trump as the national debt just hit $20 trillion. Too bad for them, their temper tantrum immediately blew up in their face on account of the one thing they don’t want you to know – and they won’t be telling you anytime soon.
There’s no arguing that liberals will use just about anything they can in order to attack President Trump, and it doesn’t matter what it is. Everything seems to be Trump’s fault in their eyes. Most recently, they’ve taken to slamming the President for the U.S. debt after it hit the $20 trillion mark.
Of course, we’re not nearly in the equitable trouble that things were in around the time of the Great Depression or just after WWII, but that isn’t stopping the left from complaining. Even better yet – at least for them – it now takes the spotlight off their idol, former President Barack Obama. Too bad for them, if they think that’s actually the case, they’re sorely mistaken as their efforts have already backfired spectacularly.
It just so happens, when Obama left office, Washington Free Beacon reports that “outstanding public debt totaled $19,944,429,217,106.” In all, that means Trump only needed to spend just under $66 billion to reach the left’s “mark of moral outrage.” However, there’s something else they’re not telling you – mainly the fact that the only reason it’s as high as it is today is because of Obama himself.
For one, Obama nearly doubled the debt during his time in office. When he entered the White House in 2009, the debt was $10,626,877,048,913. In all reality, former President George W. Bush did his part in getting it that high – but it was no match for what Obama was about to do.
In just 8 short years, Obama would just about double the debt by tacking on a whopping $9.3 trillion, bringing it to a grand total of $19,944,429,217,106. However, that’s not the only reason things are blowing up in the faces of liberals today as it seems that Trump has once again come out on top.
As one would imagine, the left is doing everything in their power to bash the current President, talking about how much he’s spent during his short tenure thus far. Too bad for them, there’s just one more problem – Obama spent more in just as much time.
According to The Gateway Pundit, “The difference between Presidents Trump and Obama is that President Obama increased the US Debt by $946 Billion or nearly $1 Trillion more than President Trump during their respective first seven months through September 8th.” Adding further insult to their liberal cause injury, this is all on top of the fact that “Trump held the longest and largest decrease of US Federal Debt in US history at $100 Billion.”
The left’s most recent outburst goes to show the real problem with liberals – they want an argument based on party lines, not facts. They also don’t want to put in their own time to do any research. Instead, they simply believe what they’re told and roll with it, which is exactly what their manipulative Democrat leaders want. The left can continue with this fake outrage, but they better sharpen up. After all, it doesn’t look good when they’re being used as political puppets to do the bidding of people who are smarter than them and pulling their strings. When the facts come out, they’re the ones left holding the bag – and boy, do they look like idiots.
