As commander in chief, Donald Trump would spend more, and make the deficit even bigger than President Barack Obama, The New York Times reports.
And that flies in the face of the ongoing accusations by Republicans that Obama is a "debt-expanding spendthrift," the newspaper's John Harwood writes.
He says the combination of Trump's spending and tax-cut proposals "confounds" veterans of GOP policy debates.
But some pundits, such as economist Larry Kudlow, believe Trump's tax plan will boost the nation's economy and the country's businesses.
"It's business who are hurting, as I've said before. Business investment actually peaked about the year 2000 and so did wages, and I don't think that's a coincidence." Kudlow told John Catsimatidis on New York's AM 970 "The Answer"
"[Trump] is the "only guy out there with a comprehensive business tax cut and I think that's the single most important potential growth stimulate."
