President Trump warned Wednesday that the government will have to do “more with less” because the “finances of our country are a mess.”

“Unfortunately, the budget we’re essentially inheriting is a mess. The finances of our country are a mess,” Trump said before a lunch meeting with officials to discuss the national budget.

The country’s deficit is nearly $20 trillion.

“We must do more with less,” Trump said.

The president pledged to “clean” up the nation’s financial problems. “We have already saved a lot – billions and billions of dollars,” he claimed.

Attending the meeting were Jared Kushner, Reince Priebus, Steve Bannon, Treasury Secretary Steven Mnuchin and OMB director Mick Mulvaney.
