Joe Biden Calls On Republicans To Raise Debt Ceiling In State Of The Union Address – Live

Now Biden’s getting into controversial territory, at least when it comes to the priorities of the House Republicans.

He’s blaming Donald Trump for America’s sizable budget deficit, saying “Under the previous administration, the American deficit went up four years in a row … nearly 25% of the entire national debt that took over 200 years to accumulate was added by just one administration alone, and the last one. They’re the facts, check it out.”

Then he leaned on Congress to increase America’s borrowing limit, which it will have to do by around June in order to prevent the country from defaulting. Biden said that under Trump, Congress “did the right thing that led to the debt ceiling three times without preconditions or crisis … let’s commit here tonight that the full faith and credit of the United States of America will never, ever be questioned.”
