BREAKING: Trump Sets Massive Record – No President Has Even Come Close To This

The mainstream media has a habit of ignoring stories that don’t support their agenda. When this new record by President Trump was released, they were all left speechless.


When President Trump first took office on January 20th, 2017, US federal debt was sitting at a stunning 19.9 trillion dollars. In half a year, Trump managed to bring the federal debt down over 100 billion dollars, according to Treasury Direct.  This new record means that Trump has the longest and largest decrease of the US federal debt in the history of the nation.

The US Government Accountability Office (GAO) has been performing audits on the US debt since 1997. Interesting enough, the federal debt has increased every single year since the audits started 20 years ago.

Many people suggested that Bill Clinton and George W. Bush were responsible for debt cuts this drastic, but this isn’t the case. At the time, House Speaker Newt Gingrich put then-President Clinton on the spot and made him agree to a balanced budget.

They did manage to cut the debt on a short-term basis, but by the end of the year, the overall federal debt had still grown larger. In fact, there’s been only one occurrence of anything close to what Trump has done.

When you look at the unaudited information, which stretches back to the time of the Civil War, there is only one instance where the US Federal government showed a decrease in the debt. Ironically, this instance was in 1957 and 1958 when Republican Eisenhower was the president.

Eisenhower managed to cut the debt by two billion d0llars across two years. Trump has accomplished this in just half of a year. This should be a huge deal to people, regardless of political affiliation.

However, the mainstream media isn’t concerned with reporting the good that Trump has accomplished because they are too caught up trying to satisfy their own agenda. They have sat in silence on multiple occasions when Trump made history.

As The Gateway Pundit points out, Trump has helped boost consumer confidence and brought the stock market to all-time highs across the board, despite not having Wall Street in his back pocket.

The Bureau of Labor Statistics shows that unemployment has dropped sharply, especially considering that Obama put unemployment in the opposite direction. Since Trump’s inauguration, unemployment has gone from 4.8 percent to 4.4 percent, as opposed to Obama’s 7.8 percent to 9.5 percent during the same timeframe.

The real estate market is also soaring. Most houses on sale in 2011 took 84 days to sell; now they are down to 45 days. The US Census Bureau points out that the number of sales has doubled compared to the early period of Obama’s term.


Yet, despite all of this, the Liberal mainstream media has gone out of their way to bring us fake news stories like the Russian collusion conspiracy, and now, allegations that Trump is a racist because he despises Antifa as much as he dislikes neo-Nazis. Hopefully, through the coming years, people learn the truth about President Trump. He has made an incredible, monumental difference in the country and has not even finished his first year in office.

    This is exactly why I prayed for many years for God to send someone to us to keep the USA alive and well and out of the grasps of the Devil that was destroying our morals and values in Society, being on the verge of our Nation’s Bankruptcy, and the decay of our Christian beliefs. The morning I heard that Donald Trump had won the Presidency Election, I knew God had answered my prayers. President Trump is a devote Christian, a genius in solving financial matters, and is a true American that will do the right things it takes to keep the USA the strongest Nation on this planet we all our living on. The facts of his greatness as our President for the past 8 months speak for themselves and “Fake News” will never be able to distort them.

    I wish that these numbers were true, but I’m a very difficult time believing this type of drastic reduction without some funny numbers game being played here. It was just stated last year that it would every citizen in the USA to contribute $43,000.00 each to reduce our debt back to balanced. That obviously hasn’t happened. So where has that money come from? Besides, the US Government is still bailing out Obamacare with ridiculously staggering numbers. Someone please help me understand this article correctly.

    Good Job President Trump! I am astounded at the ignorance of people who just want free food stamps, free health insurance, free houses, and free cash to just go on and on so they can sit home and play video games. Don’t they realize that we can’t just keep borrowing money forever? So there is a study that says 75% of people on welfare are the working poor. If you are working poor maybe it’s because you did not take your education seriously in high school. Maybe you did not take advantage of an opportunity to get a good employable job with job training or a college degree. Or maybe you got a college degree in a useless field, like Philosophy or the History of Socrates. If you barely made it through high school, there are lots of grants to get a job in something like welding, or HVAC, or plumbing. You don’t have to be poor. Make an effort to better yourself instead of expecting everyone else to support you.

    President Trump in my opinion is doing a Good Job without much support from anyone. The liberal Democrats are still angry that Clinton lost the election in the first place. They and Obama are on a mission to impeach Trump. Obama and Liberals want their cake and eat it too. Unemployment and welfare numbers have dropped and the stock market has increased dramatically under his presidency. Americans Wake up and support Trump.

    The lack of actual facts and statistics in this article is pretty hilarious. Everyone who actually pays attention knows that the actual budget hearings do not come immediately after a president goes into office and typically do not go into affect that year. The first year of a presidency is transition and very little action…which is why it is always hilarious when they try to give credit for things, including economy, they had nothing to do with. Sad lack of facts…

    This is not necessarily due to Trump. Obamas budget is still in play until September and unemployment started at 4.8%so obviously, this too was the trickle down effect from Obama…

    Why do you feel the need to lie about the facts? Your comparing what Trump inherited to what Obama inherited? That’s a blatant falsehood. At least acknowledge that Trump is operating on the Obama budget’s final year.

    Why are you touting his FHA EO that took money out people’s pockets and continued to give it the profitable MIP industry? Or his EO that changed fiduciary rules which ironically can be traced back to a Russian Mob, NYC Mafia scam of of selling investments then buying the shorts?

    A lot of this is because of drastic de-regulation and long term it will NOT work.. it is exactly why Bush II almost had us bankrupt.. We were in a global recession because it was a free for all. I don’t know if the deficit is down that far but if it is it is because of OBAMA’S policies… not Trumps… He is taking credit for all of obama’s stuff. The new fiscal year starts in a month or so.. we are working off OBAMA not trump…

    THIS IS THE MOST RIDICULOUS THING I HAVE HEARD ALL DAY…AND ITS ONLY 10 AM…..IF THE RUSSIA THING WAS A “FAKE NEWS STORY”, THEN WHY IS TRUMP BEING BROUGHT FOR QUESTIONING, ABOUT THE RUSSIA COLLUSION, AND OTHER “CRIMINAL ACTS” WHILE HE HAS BEEN IN OFFICE. THIS KIND OF THING MAKES ME REALLY SAD….I DO NOT KNOW WHAT HAPPENED TO THE AMERICA I GREW UP IN, BUT THIS IS NOT IT. MY AMERICA WOULD NOT HAVE EVER ELECTED AN UNFIT PATHOLOGICAL LIAR TO THE HIGHEST OFFICE IN THE COUNTRY MY AMERICA WOULD HAVE GONE ABOVE AND BEYOND TO SEE THAT ALL AMERICANS HAVE ACCESS TO AFFORDABLE HEALTH CARE, EDUCATION, DISABILITY, SOCIAL SECURITY, AND ALL OTHER PROGRAMS THAT WE HAVE IN PLACE TO HELP KEEP US ON THE RIGHT PATH.

    I CONSIDER MYSELF TO BE A CONSTITUTIONAL CONSERVATIVE….NOT A DEM OR REPUB….OR INDEPENDENT….I THINK THE CONSTITUTION IS OUR MOST IMPORTANT DOCUMENT, AND NEEDS TO BE KEPT, AND FOLLOWED AS IT IS. THE ONLY THING THAT SHOULD BE DONE IS ADDING AMENDMENTS TO IT FOR MODERN NECESSITIES.
    THE ONLY RECORD TRUMP BROKE, WAS THE ONE THAT SHOWED THE US ELECTED ONLY THE BEST AND BRIGHTEST FOR ITS HIGHEST OFFICE, POTUS. THAT IS NO LONGER THE CASE. WE NOW HAVE A PATHOLOGICAL LYING BIGOT, AS OUR POTUS. THIS WHOLE THING JUST MAKES ME SICK.
    SO IF YOU WANT TO REPORT FAKE NEWS YOURSELVES, FINE, BUT DON’T BLAME IT ON OTHER MEDIA OUTLETS, WHEN THEY ARE TELLING THE TRUTH, AND YOU ARE THE ONES LYING.

  32. Dave Lubrano

    August 29, 2017 at 4:42 pm

    This news is huge. Decreasing the federal burden decreases interest payments and brings America closer to a zero budget deficit. When Nancy P. and her liberals talk about wanting more money for “programs” to help the middle class, lower payments on the debt releases those funds. President Trump is doing what republican president have not been able to even approach since President Eisenhower. Want this positive economic message to continue? Continue to vote Republican in every election; state, local and Presidential elections.

You know the President who nearly tripled the stock market major indices, booming housing market, handled the economic melt down in ’08, saved the American auto industry, put Bush’s two wars and Medicaid part D “on the books” unlike Bush who basically hid the cost by keeping it off the books, 20 million with healthcare who didn’t have it before O’ Care.

      Obama policies until the start of the new fiscal year Oct 1, 2017.. I suspect you know this but choose to continue your intellectual dishonest. Deplorable.

      What a bloody idiot, you are so gullible. Massive record? When he passed NO regulation and legislation related to the economy?

      If any credit is to be due, it is to the resilience of your people, and a bit to the continuity of the policy set up by Obama and Bush, that is still being carried on. No credit to Trump, since the effect of any new legislation takes time to appear. How typical of mindless people to believe this drivel.

    America and the news should be shouting this story from the rooftops. The loser Democrats especially obama got us into deep debt just like all the democrat controlled cities in the US. They are all in debt because they are run by idiots who can’t do anything else other than spend other peoples money. States need to set up a testing mechanism and academic standards for all elected officials. Why is it that they are so strict on contractors and require testing for all trades, but any idiot can get elected. People of America, take a lesson from this President. When you’ve run a gigantic business and are hands on like the Don, you know how to use all resources wisely.

We raised taxes on the wealthy, and now our state is thriving, rated as #1 in commerce by Forbes. We have an ample budget surplus that we’re putting back into our education system. The reason that you’re shouting out bogus news like this article is that you’re simply crying wolf. And so that you know, Trump tried to run a global business, and filed bankruptcy. His dad had to bail him out financially. He’s had a whole slew of sexuall harrassment allegations against him, all of which are credible. He’s not in compliance with the Emoluments Clause of the Constitution. He can’t even spell “resources”, and he doesn’t use them wisely.

So in the first 6 months of Obama he’d been handed the nation in its worse financial state since the depression, so yes unemployment was till climbing and the housing market would take more than 2 years to recover from Wall Street and Big Bank disaster. Trump is taking credit in his first 6 months for the results of 8 years of the Obama Administration.

    It literally hurts my soul that anyone reads crap like the conservative fighters. You’re all being seriously misinformed by biased bloggers. Not once did it mention what Trump did to reduce the debt. Why? Because as far as I know, he did nothing. That article boasts what a great accomplishment it is and bashes the mainstream media for not acknowledging it yet can’t cite what exactly he did. Trump has passed no budget. In fact, every president has to go by the former Presidents budget for the first year 1/2 before theirs takes effect. So you can thank Obama.

    That article boasts how unemployment has gone down under Trump and rose under Obama “in the same time frame” which again, Trump’s was under Obama’s budget and Obama’s was under Bush’s budget. The article completely ignores the fact that unemployment went down under Obama’s tenure. Again, thank Obama.

    That article ignores the fact that Obama walked into the greatest deficit any president has walked into and even after increasing spending at the beginning to stimulate the economy in order to get us out of the great recession, he ended up cutting our national deficit IN HALF by the end of his tenure. Thank you Obama.

    That article boasts how great it is that the stock market is up because of Trump, which is true. The stock market sky rocketed right after his election. However, that article ignores the fact that the stock market solely reflects huge publicly traded corporations whom’s goals are inherently against workers and that the reason they are up is because they’re expecting giant loop holes, tax breaks, less regulations (like worker / consumer protections) etc. Note that 2/3rd of the jobs in this country come from small businesses whom are crushed by these corporations and the fact that we already live in the largest wealth gap in the world and that if corporations get what they’re expecting from Trump it would further exasperat the situation (see Velocity of Money and demand economics for reference of why it’s so terrible for this country).

    This article also incorrectly states that the “unaudited information which dates back to the civil war” shows that the only time the national debt has been reduced in a year was under Eisenhower. That, again, is clearly wrong as many including Truman and Hoover saw years of reduction in the national debt and Presidents like Coolage and Harding saw entire presidencies with reductions to the National debt every single year.

    Do yourself a favor everyone and stop reading this trash.
