Well only those at the very top and corps made out under his stupid tax bill

And now they want to cut SS, Medicare/Medicaid.

Somehow I don't think the Trump party thought this one through very well.

Do they really think running up to deficit to historical levels and then cuts to those programs are going to go over well with voters?

Especially older ones?

You are comparing apples to oranges - obama didnt inherit the same economic situation trump did.
Obama inherited two unpaid for wars with thousands of creditors demanding to be paid.

Trumpism at it's finest. Leaving the dirty work for the next guy to cleanup.

Yeah, when he first came in he has an excuse.

But in 2016, his last year, his deficit rose again, higher than the year before.

That's right, at the end of Obama's second term, his deficits were GOING UP!

Wha Happened?
.....and they are still going up under Trump. So what's your point?

That they both suck at fiscal responsibility.

But, we know for sure that Obamas deficits were worse, FAR WORSE, than Trumps, so far, anyway.

If you still don't get it, don't hesitate to ask again...

Trump's trade deficit is worse than Obama's and his budget deficit is worse too. Glad we can agree on that.

Trump's Big "Win": The Largest Budget Deficit With A Strong Economy

Trump’s policies created a record-setting trade deficit in 2018

I know you love you some Trump but this does not look good......and on top of this Trump is on pace to match Obama's National Debt.

Sucks huh? Talk is cheap.

Trump's deficits are bad, but so far, not nearly as bad as Obamas deficits.

Total US debt: $22.1 Trillion.

Debt added under the Obama administration: $9.3 Trillion.

How bout them apples?

Yes, and the economic condition obama inherited from republicans was far worse than the economic conditions obama left the republican.
