Fox News hosts' argument spirals out of control in explosive fight over Trump's failing promise
Fox Business

Fox News host Neil Cavuto and Fox Business host Lou Dobbs got into a shouting match on air Wednesday while arguing over President Donald Trump's performance on the economy.

While they both gave Trump an unearned amount of credit for the state of the economy, Cavuto had the more measured view in that he recognized the president's failure to address the national debt — despite his promise to eliminate it. In fact, under Trump, the deficit has only grown.

Dobbs refused to acknowledge this fact, only pointing to deregulation and the continued job growth in the country.

"Do you think this president has done anything to contain the deficits and the debt that have spiraled, still, from what levels we had from Barack Obama?" Cavuto said.

"I do, indeed," Dobbs said.

But of course, there was still no answer to this question, because deficits are rising not falling. Even if, absurdly, you gave Trump credit for every job that had been created since he took office, you still couldn't coherently claim that he did anything to reduce the deficit or the debt, because they're both still growing.
