Total National Debt Decreases In Trump’s First Month

% of readers think this story is Fact. Add your two cents.

Whether on not you Like Donald Trump or former president Barack Obama, one fact will forever remain true.  Under Barack Obama, the total national debt did, in fact, nearly double.

When Obama took office in January 2009, the total national debt was $10,626,877,048,913.08.  By the end of his first month in office, the total national debt was $10,838,758,414,164.46.  That is an increase of over $200 million.  This trend continued throughout his presidency and ended with adding more than $9 trillion to the national debt in eight years.  Some economists speculate that a small amount of that was due to economic decisions by the Bush administration, but agree that the bulk of it was due to decisions made by either Obama himself or others in congress during his administration.  I’m sure the $2 billion (plus) that the Obamacare website cost, didn’t help anything.
