Fox’s Chris Wallace challenges Blunt over GOP’s ‘credibility’ on national debt

Fox News hostChris Wallace challenged Republican Sen. Roy Blunt (Mo.) on Sunday to defend the GOP on the issue of the national debt.

On “Fox News Sunday,” Wallace displayed graphics indicating that the national debt grew by trillions during former President Trump’s term in the White House and asked Blunt whether Republicans had any “credibility” on the issue after voting for the 2017 tax cuts that lowered the corporate rate.

“Haven’t you lost your credibility on this issue?” Wallace asked.

“I don’t think anybody has a very good record,” Blunt responded.

Blunt also said that Congress came together to pass “not one … but five” bills addressing the COVID-19 pandemic, which he said had a significant effect on the debt.

The Obama and Trump administrations, he added, were “very similar” in terms of the national debt.
