This morning on CNBC Trump made the argument that we should be borrowing more money now because it’s cheaper, instead of trying to reduce our tremendous 19 trillion dollar debt:
Normally, you would say you want to reduce your debt, and I would like to reduce debt too, as much as anybody. The problem is you have a military problem, you have an infrastructure problem — a tremendous infrastructure problem, and you have other problems. And also, the asset is your rates are so low. What’s going to happen when the rates eventually go up and you can’t borrow, you absolutely can’t borrow because it’s too expensive, it would destroy our balance sheet? You’d be paying so little interest right now. This is the time to borrow.
Notice how John Harwood says Democrats agree with Trump!
Contrast this to what Trump said to Bret Baier in the Primary:
Oh wait, that was when he was pretending to be a conservative.
WORST. REPUBLICAN NOMINEE. EVER.
