    Default Economic Numbers Were So Bad a CNBC Host Thought They Were a Typo

    The latest economic numbers were so bad…

    How bad were they?

    They were so bad that Steve Liesman of CNBC thought they were wrong and had to double-check the numbers.

    Experts had predicted that roughly a million Americans would be added to the payrolls in April, so when the numbers were published by the Department of Labor, Liesman hesitated to read them.

    “It looks like 266,000, but maybe I have that wrong, let me double-check the bureau website here … Yes, 266 is correct. Unemployment changed to 6.1%. So we have some issues here.”

    Check the following numbers out when it comes to your chief kisser tRump from hell:

    President Trump's Impact on the National Debt
    The national debt has increased by almost 36% since Trump took office

    During the 2016 presidential campaign, Republican candidate Donald Trump promised he would eliminate the nation’s debt in eight years.1 Instead, his budget estimates showed that he would actually add at least $8.3 trillion, increasing the U.S. debt to $28.5 trillion by 2025.2 However, the national debt reached that figure much sooner. When President Trump took office in January 2017, the national debt stood at $19.9 trillion. In October 2020, the national debt reached a new high of $27 trillion. That's an increase of almost 36% in less than four years.

    The national debt reached a new high of $28 trillion less than two months after President Trump left office."
