Here's Donald Trump, being interviewed by Joe Kernen on CNBC's Squawk Box this morning:

KERNEN: One last question.

TRUMP: Go ahead.

KERNEN: Entitlements ever be on your plate?

TRUMP: At some point, they will be. We have had tremendous growth. Toward the end of the year, the growth will be incredible. At the right time, we'll take a look at that.

KERNEN: Are you willing to do things you didn't consider in the past with Medicare?

TRUMP: We never had assets like we had. We never had the consumer taking in over $10,000 a family, we never had the kind of things we had our country is the hottest in the world, the hottest economy in the world, best unemployment ever, African-American, Asian-American, Hispanics best they've ever done. Black, best they've ever done. Unemployment and employment, there is a difference. Unemployment and employment numbers for African-Americans are the best we've ever had. We just came up with a chart.

You know that was the entire point of running up the deficit, right?


Donald Trump won’t say it, but Republicans in the Senate will: Social Security and Medicare would be on the chopping block in a second Trump term. Pointing to rising deficits, Republican senators have all but promised to gut entitlements if Trump gets four more years.
