Michael Bennet: Trump’s ‘Put More Debt on the Balance Sheet of This Country ... than Any Living Politician’

‘Anybody who voted for these people because they thought they would show fiscal restraint needs to understand the incredible damage that he’s done because of his irresponsible policies’

EXCERPT:

BENNET: "My slogan is the opposite of Donald Trump. And I think we need competence in the White House again. We need to have somebody there who’s spending their time focused on the American people, not speculating whether or not he can buy Greenland or driving the national — you guys were just talking about it. The guy said he was going to pay off our debt in seven years. That’s what he said he was going to do. And he’s put more debt on the balance sheet of this country with Mitch McConnell’s help than any living politician. Anybody who voted for these people because they thought they would show fiscal restraint needs to understand the incredible damage that he’s done because of his irresponsible policies. I mean, there is a huge opportunity cost to this president of the United States. It’s not a reality TV show. This is about the lives of the kids that I used to work for when I was superintendent of Denver Public Schools and their parents who are expecting us to do our jobs, you know, and make the country — create more opportunity for them, not less. I think they’re invisible to Donald Trump."
