Voters don't care about the deficit
President Donald Trump's budget plan could add $7 trillion to the country's debt. Such a plan goes against supposed Republican orthodoxy of trying to eliminate (or at least bring down) the federal budget debt and deficit. Some Republican members of Congress have voiced their frustration with raising the deficit, which could derail Trump's budget. Yet, polling suggests it is unlikely that Trump will receive too much of a backlash for raising the deficit from Americans, including those who voted for him.
