    Yes. This finally does it. Up till now I thought he was just very misunderstood.

    How about that deficit though!? Nearly doubled since taking over. Trump doing what he does best. It was $587B at end of Obama’s presidency (and dealt with the Great Recession no big deal). Now it’s $1T. But hey, those tax cuts for the super wealthy and corporations are really paying off.

    Add that to his escalation of tensions with Iran by pulling out of the Iran nuclear deal and what a wonderful guy he is.

    Maybe you should look a little closer at the chart? It (the deficit) definitely does not kinda grow every year.

    GDP mostly does (the chart shows it going down in 2009).

    I wouldn't be opposed to a national 1-cent sales tax exclusively going towards reducing the deficit.

    Why not walk back that huge tax cut that trump gave to the ultra wealthy and large corporations? Make them pay, not the rest of us.

    I'm not opposed to some of that, either.

    For some strange reason, I could see a Biden & Bernie ticket.
