The federal debt has ballooned $236,991,525,500.74 in the 22 days since the first presidential debate between Donald Trump and Hillary Clinton, U.S. Treasury statistics show.

The data shows that at the close of business on Sept. 26, the federal debt was $19,529,588,502,748.67. At the end of Tuesday's business day, it was 19,766,580,028,249.41.
