Here are the facts - Obama grew the national debt by 8%/year while in office. Trump - even with Dems and GOP sucking at the government teat is growing it at 5%. Yes, we want the government to shrink - but we need to Democrats to give up on 'free crap for everyone' as their campaign slogan.
We do need responsibility. The economy has been fixed, trade deals have been fixed. Now, we just need to build the wall - work out a solution to the 20M+ illegals currently in the US, and then control entitlement spending. Not an easy fix to implement - but Trump has done so much already with zero support from the Dems so I suspect he will accomplish all three in his next 4 years.

Don't you love Conservatives ignoring the damage they did last time in office?
Blah blah Obama grew the national debt...during the great recession when government revenue tanked. Obama then cut the deficit to $500 billion while simultaneously pulling us out of the recession and leading us to the longest period of economic growth in US History. Trump then doubled it to a $1 trillion a year.
I'd love to know what Trade deals have been fixed. NAFTA has been replaced by the same NAFTA with a different name. The economy was fixed under Obama until Trump hurt manufacturing with a trade war. It took a $5.5 trillion tax cut (i.e. loan from future tax payers) to even keep the economy moving. Coal is dead. The trade deficits haven't changed. And middle class wages are stagnant.
And the $10 billion Wall is being scaled by people with 8 foot ladders or cut through with $30 power tools while deportation has slowed down since Obama left office. And the number of illegal immigrants trying to come into the country is up during Trump's term in office.
Responsibility? You idiots double the deficit and increased spending. You alienated our allies. You blew up the Iran deal and now Trump is begging them to accept the same deal as before. North Korea is further along in their missile capabilities after Trump declared them our friend. Less people have health insurance. Farm bankruptcies are at an high again.
Honestly, I'm trying to think of one positive thing accomplished by Trump and I haven't been able to find one...anywhere.
