Are you sick of winning yet? If not, here’s some more amazing news that you won’t hear from the mainstream media: In the first eight months of Donald Trump’s presidency, the national debt has been reduced by a little over $100 billion.
As reported by The Gateway Pundit, the debt was approximately $19.9 trillion when President Trump took office on January 20th, after Barack Obama had added roughly $9 trillion to the debt. As of August 20th, the debt has been reduced to $19.8 trillion. Not only is this a massive reversal of past U.S. presidents’ tendencies to raise the debt by crazy amounts during their tenure, but this is the actually the biggest cut to the national debt in U.S. history, especially for such a short period of time.
The exact causes of the slashing are yet to be confirmed, though it is highly possible that it can be attributed to the President’s federal government hiring freeze, as well as the massive rollbacks of federal regulations.
This is just the latest example of amazing economic news under President Trump. Other major wins include: The lowest unemployment rate in 16 years, at 4.3% (the lowest since May of 2001); more Americans employed than ever before in our history, at over 153 million; stock markets at a record high, with the Dow Jones hitting 22,000; over 1 million new jobs created in Trump’s first six months alone; and the list goes on and on and on.
As the fake news media continues to distract from the real issues, with hysterical fits over things like Russia and Charlottesville, it is important to remember; that hysteria is done in order to distract from the fact that President Trump is proving to be an overwhelming success, and America is winning.
And the best part? It’s only been eight months. Imagine how much the president can slash from the national debt in eight years.
