Donald Trump On U.S. Debt, Interest Rates

Trump talked about the fact that if interest rates go up we cannot afford to service the debt. He is a low interest rate guy, we wants to keep interest rates low and the main problem with higher rates other than what he believes would be a strong U.S. Dollar (I disagree with him there) but on the fact where he talked about that high interest rates, he said we cannot afford high interest rates so we have to be very careful because if we raise interest rates even a little bit, even a one percentage point increase would be a disaster because we do not have the money to pay. And he is right! We do not!
