This week the debt ceiling issue comes back. The debt ceiling is the limit put on the national debt by congress. If the debt ceiling is not raised will soon default on the debt because of the debt ceiling puts a cap on how much the government can borrow. Since debt has interest payments due this cuts into the amount of money the government has each month to spend.
Trump said he would reduce the deficit by ” cutting hundreds of trillions of dollars. But also wants to spend a trillion over ten years. This is where the math problem comes in . He wants to both increase and decrease spending at the same time.
Another issue would be the Entitlements that Trump says he would not cut. They are the biggest cause of increasing deficits over the coming years.
It appears that he is either lying or his he out of touch with reality .
