“Blessed are the young, for they shall inherit the national debt.”
31st President of the United States Herbert Hoover
The U.S. national debt stood at $21.974 trillion at the end of 2018, more than $2 trillion higher than when President Donald Trump took office.
I feel sorry for the young because not only will they be inheriting a staggering national debt, they will be inheriting a dying planet, thanks to Trump and the Republican climate change deniers in Congress.
