Trump: “I Won’t Be Here” When It Blows Up

Maybe we should simply try him for treason right now:

Trump on Coming Debt Crisis: ‘I Won’t Be Here’ When It Blows Up

The president thinks the balancing of the nation’s books is going to, ultimately, be a future president’s problem.

The friction came to a head in early 2017 when senior officials offered Trump charts and graphics laying out the numbers and showing a “hockey stick” spike in the national debt in the not-too-distant future. In response, Trump noted that the data suggested the debt would reach a critical mass only after his possible second term in office.

“Yeah, but I won’t be here,” the president bluntly said, according to a source who was in the room when Trump made this comment during discussions on the debt.

And his advisors are simply the dream team of supply side:

Stephen Moore, a conservative economist at the Heritage Foundation and an economic adviser to Trump’s 2016 campaign, recalled making visual presentations to Trump in mid-2016 that showed him the severity of the debt problem. But Moore told The Daily Beast that he personally assured candidate Trump that it could be dealt with by focusing on economic growth.

“That was why, when he was confronted with these nightmare scenarios on the debt, I think he rejected them, because if you grow the economy… you don’t have a debt problem,” Moore continued. “I know a few times when people would bring up the enormous debt, he would say, ‘We’re gonna grow our way out of it.’

Proven not to work multiple times but these guys don't believe in facts. They believe in beliefs!

Trump is not the first President to kick the can down the road. The excessive debt will sooner or later have to be reckoned with and no one wants to be held accountable for the disastrous economy that will be accompanied by this debt.

If there are any firsts for this President it is the absurd amount of negative press he receives from the media…and yet the media does not get it…as more and more Americans are becoming distrustful of the Media it continues to get worse….shameful.
