Over the last few weeks, we as Americans have been so distracted by Donald Trump that we didn’t even noticed Barack Obama had yet another brutal failure of his presidency.

According to The Washington Examiner, our national debt hit $19 trillion for the first time ever last Friday, coming in at $19.012 trillion. It took just over 13 months for the national debt to climb by $1 trillion, with it hitting $18 trillion on December 15, 2014.

This is a slightly higher pace compared to the last few $1 trillion mileposts. It took 14 months for the debt to climb from $17 to $18 trillion, and the same amount of time for it to go from $16 to $17 trillion.

Experts say Obama will likely leave office with a whopping $20 trillion in debt, which will officially make him one of the worst presidents of all time.
