he has DOUBLED THE FEDERAL DEFICIT, at a time when the economy was otherwise performing well.
The usdebtclock.org site gives the current deficit as 956 billion.
The deficit increase in 08 - 09 was due to the economic collapse, when Republicans and Democrats agreed to do an “economic stimulus” to save the economy.
In Obama’s term the deficit was brought down gradually each year, down to about 450 billion in his last year.
So Trump’s deficit increase, to twice as high, is his most noteworthy contribution to the economy, reversing the earlier downward trend. The current declining unemployment rate was already happening during the Obama years, with no significant change from 2016 to 2017 other than to continue the downward trend already in progress.
