U.S. National Debt Adds $1 Trillion in 6 Months, Partially Due to Trump Legislation

In just over six months, the U.S. has added a trillion dollars to its national debt. The benchmark was achieved earlier in March, increasing from the $20 trillion mark reached in early September 2017.

According to MarketWatch, the debt is expected to increase after President Donald Trump signed a debt limit suspension in February. The debt limit suspension allows for unlimited borrowing through March 1, 2019.
