When President Obama nearly doubled the national debt, raising it by almost $9 trillion during his two terms in office, Republicans howled in alarm.
This year, the U.S. national debt at roughly $22 trillion reached 100 percent of our gross domestic product (GDP) for the first time in American history.
We once derided Obama as the 'king of debt'.” But at this point in his presidency, Trump seems to have happily inherited the mantle.
