Those are the findings of the Committee for a Responsible Federal Budget, a nonpartisan group that advocates for deficit reduction.
According to the Committee for a Responsible Federal Budget, a bipartisan organization, the proposals made by Trump will increase debt by a huge amount.

In our new report, Promises and Price Tags: A Fiscal Guide to the 2016 Election, we find that both Hilary Clinton and Donald Trump have put forth a suite of plans that would make the already unsustainable national debt worse (and significantly worse in the case of Trump).
A bipartisan anti-budget deficit group analyzed budget proposals from presumptive Republican presidential nominee Donald Trump and presumptive Democratic presidential nominee Hillary Clinton.
A new report by the Committee for a Responsible Federal Budget finds that "Clinton would increase spending by $1.45 trillion over ten years, from 22.1 to 22.7 percent of GDP." Under Trump, spending would increase "from 22.1 to 22.5 percent of GDP."
The analysis comes courtesy of the Washington, D.C., based Center for a Responsible Federal Budget (CRFB). By comparison, during the less than eight years of President Obama's presidency, the U.S. debt has risen by roughly $6 trillion, about half the cost of Trump's plan.
The report published by the independent Committee for a Responsible Federal Budget took into account every proposal made by Trump and Clinton and analyzed how they would collectively affect the federal budget.
