I'm sure that this will turn out, like so many things in trump World inc. do, to be a perfectly understandable mistake on the part of some low level perfunctory. Some accounting clerk posted their imaginary 2 trillion 'economic growth' credit but neglected to post the 2 trillion debit for the money they're giving to the riches, so when they looked at the books they thought they were up 2 trillion, or something like that. Perfectly understandable! An honest mistake, wholly appropriate and not stupid at all.

If the 2 trillion is imaginary anyway, why not imagine 4 trillion? Problem solved.

Don't be silly, everyone knows the way you solve an $18 trillion dollar national debt is to print 18 one trillion dollar bills and give them to China. Sheesh...do I have to explain everything to you snowflakes?

You have a good brain. You could probably hire the best people if you wanted to.

It's really simple people! You take in less by cutting taxes, spend way more than you need to on military boondoggles, and/or privatization, and the money just comes rolling into the treasury. It was invented away back in, oh, 1981 or so. Now, I don't recommend you try this with your personal finances, because...well, just take my word for it. However it has been known to work for Republicans. Except for Kansas. Don't pay too much attention to Kansas.

China's portion of the US debt is just over 1 trillion dollars. so is Japan's portion of the US debt. The single biggest holder of US debt is the Social Security Trust fund.and yes, you are having fun, but I wanted to point that out regardless.

This reminds of the Fat Fighters sketch on Little Britain where the lady explains their new calorie cutting strategy: you take whatever it is you want to eat, like cake (OH ME LOVES THE CAKE) and cut it in half! And it's half the calories! Then you can eat twice as much!
