Trump: 2021 growth will help pay off national debt

Steep growth in the United States economy in 2021 will bring the country to a position to be able to address federal debt, President Donald Trump said on Wednesday.

Trump said the US was just getting ready to start thinking about slowly paying off its $27 trillion federal debt and interest when the COVID-19 pandemic started and postponed the plans. He called the debt situation "very concerning" but added that the federal government had no choice but to act fiscally and put money into the economy.

The president went on to say that growth in 2021 will be like the US has "never seen before."
