#54: National Debt Under the Four Recent Presidents

This episode launches from a recent Tweet about the state of the national debt since Trump took office on January 20, 2017. There was some discrepancy about whether the national debt has increased or decreased since then, so I provide the current number and compare it with the starting number. Then I unpack the debt situation under the previous three U.S. presidents.
