I’m a moderate but it does seem more recent Republican Presidents have not helped with the National debt situation.

Both Bush and Trump unfortunately really added to the deficits. Trump talks about how strong the economy was but in 2019 the Fed lowered interest rates 3 times and we had a trillion dollar deficit. Based upon my Econ 101 college course, that’s not the signs of a strong economy.
