Former South Carolina Republican Gov. Mark Sanford said President Trump is not doing enough to address the nation’s worsening debt problem.

The burgeoning debt is bringing America closer toward a very predictable financial meltdown, Sanford, who is challenging the president in the 2020 Republican primary, asserted Wednesday on “Your World with Neil Cavuto.”

“We have a profound spending and debt problem in this country,” he said. “It should alarm every conservative out there, and the president himself said, ‘If you elect me, I will eliminate the debt.'”

He continued: “Instead, the numbers have been going in the reverse direction and we’re not having a conversation on it. I think we’re walking our way toward the most predictable financial crisis in the history of our country if we don’t address this, which is why I’m running.”
