Donald Trump Reportedly Shrugged Off Looming Debt Crisis Because 'I Won't Be Here'

Trump "appears to be bringing the same approach to the country he took to his casinos and other failed businesses," one congressman replied to the report.

President Donald Trump was taken to task on Twitter after a report claimed he shrugged off surging U.S. national debt because it wouldn’t happen until after he leaves the White House.

Yeah, but I won’t be here,” The Daily Beast on Wednesday reported Trump as telling senior officials in early 2017 who attempted to warn him of the impending debt crisis.

The national debt currently stands at about $21 trillion.

Many people on Twitter weren’t surprised that Trump, who has declared bankruptcy for his companies on multiple occasions, was paying little heed to the figures.

Some also suggested he had the same “philosophy on climate change.”
