Trump On Coming Debt Crisis: I Won't Be Here When It Blows Up

https://www.msn.com/en-us/news/politics/trump-on-coming-debt-crisis-i-won%e2%80%99t-be-here-when-it-blows-up/ar-BBQwWML?ocid=sf

Since the 2016 presidential campaign, Donald Trump’s aides and advisers have tried to convince him of the importance of tackling the national debt. Sources close to the president say he has repeatedly shrugged it off, implying that he doesn’t have to worry about the money owed to America’s creditors—currently about $21 trillion—because he won’t be around to shoulder the blame when it becomes even more untenable.

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.

he's running (ruining?)the country like he ran his businesses.

Bankruptcy has been good to him, so why shouldn't it be good for the nation?

6. tRump, could care less. He's a narcissistic sociopath. He doesn't feel a thing and has absolutely no

empathy. He's not a well individual ... not surprised by anything he says.

8. Ditto for the environment.

He won’t be here to see the ruined planet that he refused to help save. His only interest is what the ruination added to his bank account.

10. There's your "republican values" - make a huge stinking mess, then slink away

and let others clean up your farking mess. Lowlife. the rpeublicans are the party of draft-dodging, casino-hustling, lying a-hole shirkers.
