Trump’s Not Worried About The Deficit Because It’ll Be Someone Else’s Problem

Trump's Not Worried About a Deficit Because It'll Be Someone Else's Problem

At a Daily Beast, Asawin Suebsaeng & Lachlan Markay report that President Trump thinks reducing a debt isn’t his job.

Since a 2016 presidential campaign, Donald Trump’s aides & advisers have tried to convince him of a importance of tackling a national debt.

Sources close to a president say he has repeatedly shrugged it off, implying that he doesn’t have to worry about a money owed to America’s creditors—currently about $21 trillion—because he won’t be around to shoulder a blame when it becomes even more untenable.

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

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

We can regard this as Boomer selfishness, or as a sign of Trump’s inability to care about anyone oar than himself — but it’s also a sign that Trump is enabling Republicans’ big con on a debt without actually being in on it.
