Trump campaign promise to eliminate the national debt, but the opposite has happened.
28 Jun 2018
Trump has created the largest debt in history: over 21 trillion dollars,after promising in his campaign to wipe out the national debt.
Trump campaign promise to eliminate the national debt, but the opposite
has happened.

What has caused the increase?

1. Trump is prosecuting 6 wars, dropping the MOAB bomb, firing missiles, activating drones.
2. Trump gave over a trillion dollars in tax cuts as welfare for billionaires, centimillionaires,
and corporations.
3 Trump cruelty to immigrants costs $300 million a month. Trudeau in Canada has offered to take all Central American refugees.
It's time to arrange trains planes, buses, cars, overground and underground railroads.. to get refugees and other immigrant to a nation kinder to human beings. Trump's jails for teen immigrants in desert tents of Texas cost $700 a day per teen,
paid by citizen taxes to privatized prison profiteers. That is just one of many holding
areas for parents in some areas and their children in others.
4. The US is spending much more money on border guards.
5. Inflation has increased because of higher gas prices caused by
Trump's sanctions against socialist oil producing countries,
Russia, Venezuela, and Iran.
6. The forest fires burning in 8 states have been exacerbated by Trump's, Pruitt's and Zinke's
increasing tree destruction in national parks etc. Each average sized tree evaporates 42 gallons
of water daily which becomes mist, then clouds, and finally rain.In 2018 alone the Forest Service has spent
over 1.2 billion dollars fighting fires.
7. In addition, Zinke has reduced grazing fees on national lands. Sheep and cows in grazing
pull up sapling trees further deforesting with consequent drought.
8. The Trump government has had to hire more lawyers to fight the hundreds of lawsuits directed against
him and his actions in many areas. In June, 18 attorneys general from 17 states and DC have
filed about his unconstitutional separation of parents from children and other aspects of
his draconian immigration agenda.
9. Trump's Secret Service costs have broken new records. When he is in Florida, not only
the Secret Service but local police and the Coast Guard are involved. Taxpayers supports
his sons' and daughter's Secret Service protections for worldwide travels as well as his

For many years Bush 1, Bush 2, Obama and Trump have been raiding the Social Security fund,
the USPS fund etc. and siphoning the money to the Afghanistan fiasco, the Iraq atrocity,
and other failed ventures which benefit only war profiteers and religious haters.
The entire 21 trillion dollar deficit (some say it is much more) is less than the cost
of the invasion and bombing of 17 countries since 1980. home 36.4
