Trump’s deficit reduction numbers ‘total nonsense’
They don’t add up, but since when does Donald Trump know anything about policy?
Reason: Donald Trump says his economic plans would save the government money and reduce the deficit. But in tonight’s Fox News debate, moderator Chris Wallace made it perfectly clear that his numbers don’t even begin to add up. … Wallace began by noting that Donald Trump’s tax plan would increase the deficit by a whopping $10 trillion, and that Trump generally dismisses this concern by saying that much of that could be made up by the elimination of waste, fraud, and abuse. … Even if you managed to completely cut all spending related to those entire departments, it still wouldn’t even begin to eliminate the deficit we already have.
