President Trump called on congressional Republicans not to make any concessions to Democrats on extending the debt ceiling. In a statement on Wednesday, our 45th president said the debt ceiling was the only powerful tool the GOP had in fiscal talks with the Democrats.
Trump stressed Democrat spending proposals would destroy our country and Republicans should not extend the debt ceiling unless Democrats scrapped their extravagant fiscal plans. Democrat proposed bills would increase the national debt, which by some estimates would balloon to $89 trillion dollars by 2030.
Trump went on to say, “therefore Republicans have no choice but to do what they have to do, and the Democrats will have no choice but to concede all of the horror they are trying to inflict upon the future of the United States.”
Trump also called on Republicans to oppose Democrat election reforms that would erode election integrity.
