‘This is Trump’s debt’: Joe Scarborough calls out Republicans on deficit spending

MSNBC’s Joe Scarborough called out Republicans for threatening to default on the national debt after racking up deficit spending under former president Donald Trump

“We certainly know republicans are raging hypocrites in the era of Trump, [and] we are still in the era of Trump,” Scarborough said. “Here is a party that spent like drunken socialists — you talk about socialists, this Republican Party sent like drunken socialists over the past five years. They racked up record levels deficits and record levels of debt. The bills that Donald Trump and Mitch McConnell approved, the largest budget in the history of the republic. The Republicans’ budget were the largest in history of republic and ran up record deficits and debt. That’s the bill, actually, that has come due now. We are not talking about what happens in the future, we don’t know what’s going to happen in the future. You don’t default at your bank for debts. You may accrue in the future, [but] you default because of what you already done.”

“Republicans spent more money on budgets over four Trump’s years than any president before — LBJ, FDR, you name it, Jimmy Carter, Bill Clinton,” he said. “You pick the Democrat and the person that was lied about and being called socialists, Republicans spend more money.”
