I never thought I’d say this — and I would still never vote for the cartoonishly evil Hillary Clinton — but this shows why Trump would do even more damage to the country than her: Trump: I’ll reduce the national debt by getting creditors to accept less.
Got that? Mr. Business Expert thinks that there won’t be any unintended consequences of telling our creditors that they may not get paid 100% of what we owe them. Whether he is bluffing or not, he could send our economy into a tailspin the day after he is elected.
Try telling this to your banker: “I’m only going to pay you $90,000 on my mortgage instead of the $100,000 I owe you. Oh, and I’d like to borrow another $100,000 today.”
How do you think that will go? Do you think he’ll lend you more money? Do you think anyone else will? And even if they were foolish enough to do so, do you think they just might charge a much higher interest rate?
Even if everything else Trump said was coherent and rational this issue alone should be an ejector seat for him.
This country is getting what it deserves with these two unqualified, anti-Christian, anti-American narcissists.
