American Debt

US debt

The American Debt Resources, Inc, East Northport, NY. Doctor Trump: Have US debts sunk since the presidential inauguration? You know they have lent more in the last eight years than they have in the whole of our country's entire past. You lent yourself more than $10,000, right? Yet we've raised $5.

2 billion on the exchange alone. Maybe in a way, we'll reduce the debt. Each day, the Treasury Department provides information on the amount of debt, i.e. the sum of the US government's debts.

As of January 20, 2017, the day of the presidential investiture, the entire government debt owed amounted to 19.95 billion dollars (15.2 billion pounds). The debt was $10.63 billion on January 20, 2009, when Obama was inaugurated. The comparison of numbers with the amount of debt incurred throughout the entire course of the country's development is somewhat difficult.

When we take the debt due on opening date 2009 as the aggregate amount lent since 1789, then President Obama has not lent more than that, he has $1. 32tn less than that. Obviously, this net debt is not the entire amount raised. Aggregate borrowings will be much higher as part of the debt will have been paid back in the last hundred years.

Bloomberg's US stock capitalization (measurement of the value of all publicly traded companies) estimates the actual value at $28.39 billion, while the value the following morning was $25 billion. However, we know from President Trump's Twitter accounts that he actually compared it to the electoral levels. As of November 8, $23.89 billion in terms of total capitalization, the increase was $4.5 billion.

It is more difficult to read this little bit, on the other hand, but it does sound as if it compares the US debt with the value of the stocks on the US Bourse. Capitalization is not the government's currency - it is the shareholders' currency. This could result in more tax being payable at some point, but the two numbers do not fall into the same group.

Just think that on the opening date the debts amounted to 19.95 billion dollars. Now, the last Treasury Department number for October 10th was $20. The debt has indeed decreased in the first few month of the EU Council of Ministers term, but it increased on 8 September when the US government passed a bill to increase the debt limit.
