Start your countdown over.

And the 2018 deficit is looking like a trillion.
Reality sucks

Obama added $1.4 trillion to the national debt in 2016, if Trump only adds a trillion in 2018 that is certainly an improvement.

Why lie? The 2016 deficit was 548 billion, the 2017 deficit was 666 billion, 2018 is looking like a trillion.

At least the ones that make steel for infrastructure, you would think that a trillion dollars in infrastructure would need some steel.
But apparently imaginary infrastructure with imaginary funding from an imaginary infrastructure bill, uses imaginary steel...

RoastPork, I don't totally blame President Trump. He can't sign a bill that isn't passed. The Republican Party is the majority party within both congressional chambers and their candidate is in the White House.

Republicans could pass a bi-partisan "clean bill" for federal support of public and semi-public infrastructures if they wished to do so; Republicans could pass a partisan infrastructure bill if the Republican Party could agree among themselves. With good reason, I find the Republican Party at fault.

Goober, I did not graduate form H.S., but I have formed an opinion, and I am informing you of that opinion. I would suppose knowledge of civil engineering would be helpful for devising the plans to form a very high structure.
