The federal debt increased $236,991,525,500.74 in the twenty-two days that passed between the first presidential debate between Donald Trump and Hillary Clinton and the close of business yesterday—the last day for which the Treasury has published the debt data.

That $236,991,525,500.74 increase in the federal debt since the first Trump-Clinton debate on September 26 equals an increase of $10,772,342,068.22 per day and $1,843.48 for every person who voted in the 2012 presidential election.

It also equals $1,906.67 for every person who had a full-time job in the United States in September.

Additionally, it is more than the $201,003,387,221.13 in debt the federal government accumulated between the Declaration of Independence in 1776 and the end of fiscal 1944 on June 30, 1944.
