More than 1.1 Million Americans Dropped Off the Food Stamp Rolls Since President Trump Took office in January 2017



According to the latest U.S. Department of Agriculture (USDA) statistics on food stamp enrollment, more than 1.1 million Americans dropped off the food stamp rolls since President Trump took office in January 2017. Trump is not just making America great again with jobs, but also having Americans dropping off of food stamps. Unlike Barack Obama who was the Food Stamp president, Trump wants people to get jobs, become independent from the government and be self-sufficient.

Trump Thumbs up

Participation in the Supplemental Nutrition Assistance Program (SNAP) dropped to 41,496,255 in May 2017, the most recent data available from the USDA, from 42,691,363 in January 2017 when Trump took office.

According to the latest data, SNAP enrollment during the first few months of Trump’s presidency decreased by 2.79 percent.

Food stamp participation on average in 2017 has dropped to its lowest level since 2010, and the latest numbers show that this trend is continuing.

Trump proposed cuts to SNAP in his 2018 budget proposal, suggesting that states match up to 20 percent of federal money allotted for the food stamp program and expand work requirements for able-bodied adults receiving food stamps.

Trump’s crackdown on illegal immigration has also prompted many immigrants, both legal and illegal, to cancel their food stamps over concerns that they might be denied citizenship or deported.

      There’s a lot of positive plus things happening under Trump but you’d never know it because of all the negative press. They say his ratings are low…by whose standards. But, if so it’s because of the liberal witch hunt and their constant attack of the untruth.

      Cillizza, editor-at-large from CNN, is one of the biggest enemies of the truth, he should be prosecuted. He states the America people don’t like Donalds’s tweets…we never said that…more untruth from Cillizza…he doesn’t like the tweets because he doesn’t have a first hand chance to slaughter what the President says. The tweets are between the people an Donald and it’s none of his damn business.
