Trump supported the initiative of the next increase in the limit of US debt

41
Information Service "BBC" reports that Trump has decided to continue the financial movement along the path of his predecessors as president of the United States. This is expressed in the fact that the American president, along with representatives of the congress, did not find anything more original than the next increase in the marginal level of the American national debt. According to the US President, such actions will reduce the risk of default.

The problem of another increase in the US debt limit was discussed in connection with the hurricanes Harvey and Irma, which devastated the American treasury by several billion dollars.

Trump supported the initiative of the next increase in the limit of US debt


From the report:
Representatives of the Democratic Party announced an agreement on raising the limit of public debt after approval by the House of Representatives of the allocation of almost 8 billion dollars to eliminate the consequences of hurricane Harvey. The draft law on raising the state debt limit has not yet been approved. However, his supporter was President Trump. The head of the Republicans in the US Senate, Mitch McConnell, said that the bill would be considered, although earlier many Republicans were against new increases in the US debt ceiling.

Trump again about the "deal":
Yes, we come to this deal. I think it will be good. We had a professional, emotional meeting.


To date, the level of US government debt is estimated at 19,997 trillion dollars. The burden of debt for every citizen of the United States, including old people and babies, is more than 61 thousand dollars.

        Unfortunately, they still don’t want to explain to us what the US debt is and how they cunningly hide inflation and a lot of money released. If you remove government debt - this is 19 trillion - that would be this mass of money in circulation - a dollar would cost a penny or less.
        For example, China has before it on its account debt from the United States (China's foreign exchange reserves of 3 trillion) - this is nothing more than China sold the United States in the amount of 3 trillion dollars. This money the Central Bank of China has changed to RMB. And here is what I changed (emitted) and sent back to the United States (i.e., this type of money should destroy the United States, as the issuing country). BUT the USA puts this money on the account of this country - "Currency reserves". And voila - the United States bought 3 trillion worth of goods in China for air. and China, secured by the dollar, issued RMB for this amount. And everyone is happy - and so everyone is strange.

        In short, the United States and its treasury, the Moloriki and their treasuries, are in general an awesome idea.

          Yes at every corner they say. A public debt is a public debt. External and internal. External in the form of those trezheriz.
          And so - all right - printed dollars settle in the form of debt instruments. They are not in circulation. The whole world credits the SGA.

          And you need to understand that the dollar as a means of payment within the SGA and dollars in the form of a world currency are still slightly different dollars. More precisely, their path is different.
          When at the beginning of this year the Fed raised the interest rate on treasuries, the holders of these treasuries suffered losses.

          What did he sell? What does the gold reserves and "sold"? Those. if China gets rid of treasury, will it buy? China earned some money (sold, stolen, served - it doesn’t matter) exchanged it for dollars and bought treasury. And he wants to get a margin on repayment. That's all.

          Haha There is a good analytical article where it is reasonably shown that the Americans could well have turned this trick. And the whole World would go to them again and carry the money. Of course, this would not be in the cynical “they all went to a certain address”, they would explain that this is a necessary measure and is dictated exclusively by concern for the well-being, first of all, of all mankind.

          And then: the SGA has debt of approximately 110% of GDP. Well, even more - they consider their GDP crafty. But Japan has a national debt of more than 300%. Greece also has 300+. In other countries it goes over the top hundred GDP. So what?
          By the way, here, the Japanese are very hardworking people. And the Greeks, Italians and a number of other outsiders - well, they will not break even once! The whole WORLD owes to everyone and everything. And myself including.

          So the scenario of writing off debts is not so fantastic.

      Yes, not so much they owe to foreign countries - about 3 trillion out of 13. Major Japan and China about 1,3 trillion. And the main part is private individuals and companies. So what ? Well, they themselves consider it profitable to lend to the United States. Like Russia. recourse And certainly they are not going to throw debt obligations into the market.

      They will, of course, return nothing. But precisely because of this, Putin, contrary to the government, is pushing the transition to nat. currencies. Gradually we sell their loan obligations, we reduce the number of dollars at our place (you cannot immediately collapse precisely because you will not receive anything. There is nothing to receive). They’re not so empty pieces of paper, they just aren’t provided with gold, they are provided with Saudi oil (are they provided? Neither God nor the devil knows, neither Christian nor Muslim.

      It is not necessary for Americans to return their money. You can buy something for a dollar, and then not accept the very same dollars as payment. Only everything.
      Everyone in the world understands that the dollar is not backed by anything. Therefore, as soon as a more attractive and liquid currency arises, many will switch to it. Now there is simply nothing more to hold money for - just dollars and euros. But the dollar, as I understand it, is more attractive, because a larger percentage is given for it in bonds.
