Presumptive Republican presidential nominee Donald Trump on Thursday said he might seek to pay back investors in U.S. government debt less than they were owed "if the economy crashed," raising doubts about whether Treasury bonds would be reliable in a future administration.
Speaking on CNBC, Trump said he embraces the idea of taking on debt, given that borrowers can try to tweak the terms later on.
"I am the king of debt. I do love debt. I love debt. I love playing with it." Trump said.
