When Trump took over the office on January 20th — Inauguration Day, he ‘inherited’ a debt of a total $19,947,304,555,212.40, or $19,947 billion.
Today, the debt is $19,935,316,186,835.70, or $19,935 billion.
That means that in just one month, the Trump administration managed to cut the entirety of the debt by 0.1 percent ($12 billion).
During the first month of his presidency, former President Obama grew the debt $200 million, reports The Truth Division.
