Title: Trump: U.S. can never default because it prints money

"You know, I’m the king of debt," Donald Trump said. "I understand debt probably better than anybody. I know how to deal with debt very well."

Donald Trump assailed the media on Monday for what he said was a misrepresentation of his comments on debt, rejecting the notion that he would have the United States default on his debt.

"I said if we can buy back government debt as a discount. In other words, if interest rates go up and we can buy bonds back as a discount, if we are liquid enough as a country we should do that. In other words, we can buy back debt as a discount," the presumptive Republican nominee said in a telephone interview on CNN's "New Day."

Those who said he wants to buy debt and default on it are "crazy," he added.

"This is the United States government. First of all, you never have to default because you print the money. I hate to tell you. So there’s never a default. But the point is it was reported in the New York Times incorrectly," he said, referring to a critical Times article that ran on Friday.

That article examined an interview Trump gave to CNBC last Thursday in which he suggested that he could reduce the national debt by persuading U.S. creditors to accept less than full payment.

"It was reported in the failing New York Times and other places that I want to default on debt," Trump said. "You know, I’m the king of debt. I understand debt probably better than anybody. I know how to deal with debt very well. I love debt but you know, debt is tricky and it’s dangerous and you have to be careful and you have to know know what you're doing. If there's a chance to buy back debt as a discount, interest rates up and the bonds down and you can buy debt. That’s what I'm talking about."

No one would ever confuse business dealings with government practice, Trump suggested, remarking that the government would not ask creditors to buy back debt at a discount.

"In business, that happens all the time. I bought mortgages back when the market went bad, I bought mortgages back at tremendous discounts. And I love doing it. I mean, there’s nothing like it. Actually, it gives me a great thrill," he said. "But in the United States with bonds, that won't happen. Because you know, in theory the market doesn't go down so that you default on debt. And that’s what happened."

"So here’s the story, just to have it corrected. If we have an opportunity where interest rates go up and you can buy back debt as a discount," he explained. "I always like to do that, if you can do it. But that’s all I was talking about. They have it like I'm going to go back to creditors and I’m going to renegotiate restructured debt. It's ridiculous and they know it's ridiculous but they print it out wrong purposely."

Trump then called into Fox Business Network where he reiterated much of the same, calling it a "wonderful thing" if the U.S. government is able to buy back bonds at a discount.

"All I said is that if interest rates go up, we'll have a chance to buy back bonds at a discount, which is standard," he told Maria Bartiromo. "Certainly I'm not talking about renegotiating with creditors."

And in related news...

Thus the key thing to understand about Europe is that no country in Europe is solvent. No country can pay back its debts without the central bank printing money. The only reason Greece ran into trouble first is due to the perception of insolvency. Since Germany is perceived as responsible, people still buy Germans bond.

The entire Euro- Zone is having a Wile E. Coyote moment.

Trump understands the issue better than the reporters and media do.

And the comment about printing money meaning never defaulting is largely correct, except it's the Fed that does that, not the US gov, and the US gov has to borrow it from the Fed. But the US gov can borrow as much as it wants. Sure it can and is trashing the economy, but it does it without defaulting.

But clearly Trump is not saying it's a good idea.

Bank of Trump & Friends and the FED are too big to fail, and too big to jail, so just borrow and print another YUGE! bailout.

And learn Chinese.

No. Greece cannot print Euros or control the value of that currency.

Very true. Note also U.S. Const. A1, S8, C5 says "The Congress shall have the power to coin Money, regulate the value thereof...." They can coin trillion dollar coins.

Obviously, printing/coining worthless money to pay interest on a worthless debt has INDEED been a valued function of governments since money was invented.

Control the value of the Euros, OTOH -- That depends on what happens to all that A$$paper circling the vortex of the global economic sewer.

Of course. Non-Greek folks control the current Greek currency. That's what they get for joining the EU; a loss of sovereignty.

Looks like someone would ask him how well that worked out for Germany in the 20's and 30's.

Granted,he would have no idea what you were talking about,so he would probably say something like "Marvelous,just marvelous!"

Which is what the 'murikan voters will be getting when the globalists finally import enough 3rd world voters to the US to vote for a Constitutional Convention to dissolve the union and join "World Wide Government,Inc".

Well, the 3rd world voters with enough brains to even know what this is will be saying, "wait a minute, we've got a good thing going: we don't want to end it."

The peasants will just be saying 'gimme gimmee gimee"

Obama has played at being a president while enjoying the perks … golf, insanely expensive vacations at tax-payer expense. He has ignored the responsibilities of the job; no plans, no budgets, no alternatives … just finger pointing; making him a complete failure as a president

We all know it doesn't work, and that was the obvious point that cap't Trump (soon to be CnC) was making.

I'll agree that Trump isn't a genius about money, but he sure ain't stupid, either.

No,they won't. They won't because they have never lived in a free country before so they don't know what they will be missing,and none of them came here to be free in the first place. They came here for all the "free stuff",not the freedom.

He is,mostly,smart enough to follow the advise of the people he hires to advise him,anyhow.

He's just so in love with the sound of his own voice that he sometimes forgets what he has been told to say and says what sounds good to him.
