The United States of America owes $27.9 trillion to the world, including $216 billion to India.United States' national debt has reached $27.9 trillion, Rep. Alex Moore told the Congress on February 27. Out of the total debt, the country owes India $216 billion, as per the U.S Department of Treasury

Moore said the country's debt is "a little more than $84,000 of debt to every American citizen". In 2020, the country's debt was $23.4 trillion, which is $72,309 per person. He added that the U.S. "borrowed $10,000 per person" the last year, which he claimed to be "out of control."

Moore also said that the U.S's debt would increase to $29 trillion and that the top two countries they owe over $1 trillion each are China and Japan. He said the nations they own are not actually friends and "are not necessarily people who have our best interest at heart."

The U.S. owes the third highest to the U.K $440.6 billion, Brazil $258 billion, and India $216.2 billion.

An annual survey of foreign portfolio holdings of U.S. securities released on February 26, 2021, measured the value of foreign holdings as of June 30, 2020, to be $21,990 billion as per the Department of the Treasury's survey.
