The Washington Post called the reduction of the national debt by $12 billion during President Donald Trump’s first month in office “meaningless,” saying it has virtually no impact on the total debt.
Trump took to Twitter Saturday morning to point out the incongruities in the media not reporting on the reduction in the debt.
The media has not reported that the National Debt in my first month went down by $12 billion vs a $200 billion increase in Obama first mo.

Conservative pundit Herman Cain made mention of the reduction Saturday on Fox & Friends.

By comparison, the national debt grew by more than $200 billion during the first month of the Obama administration in 2009.
