Trump on debt: Even more establishment than the establishment

“The Washington Post reports that US president Donald Trump and Senate Minority leader Chuck Schumer (D-NY) ‘have agreed to pursue a deal that would permanently remove the requirement that Congress repeatedly raise the debt ceiling.’ That must be a bitter pill to swallow for those who thought they were electing an ‘anti-establishment’ president to ‘drain the swamp’ in Washington, but it should be no surprise. After all, Trump built his business career on going into debt up to his neck, taking a profit when things worked out, and leaving his partners holding the bankruptcy bag when they didn’t.” (09/07/17)
