Acting WH Budget Director: Congress Has Been Ignoring Trump’s Spending Reductions for the Last 2 Years


(CNSNews.com) - Acting White House Budget Director Russell Vought defended President Donald Trump’s failure to eliminate the national debt within eight years like he promised during his presidential campaign.

During a White House press briefing on Monday, a reporter asked, “You mentioned what the president promised during the campaign. During the campaign, he also promised that he would eliminate the national debt within eight years, and as you know, the debt at the end of his first year was at $20 trillion. Last year it went to $21 trillion; last month, $22 trillion. So what happened to that promise? I mean, the president has added historically large numbers to the national debt instead of keeping a promise to actually pay it off.”

Vought said the Obama administration doubled the national debt, while Trump, in contrast, sent Congress a budget that would have balanced within the decade.
