Trump was jumping for joy after his best news yet came out
President Trump is on a winning streak.
He continues to gain massive victories, much to the ire of the Democrat Party.
And now, Trump is jumping for joy after his best news yet came out.
Former President Barack Obama truly was the food stamp president.
He saw having more and more Americans on food stamps as a good thing.
But President Trump would rather have Americans back at work and off government assistance.
And due to his economic policies resulting in historic employment, that is beginning to happen.
Since taking office, over 5.8 million people have discontinued their participation in the food stamps program.
This is a massive spike in the amount of people getting off the program, which has only been declining in participation since 2013.
But that decline is thanks to the work of state legislatures requiring food stamp recipients to work, attend school, volunteer, or participate in job training, not anything Obama did.
The decline under Trump is due to his America First economic policies that are resulting in a booming economy.
Over 5.8 million individuals have discontinued their participation in America’s food stamp program since President Donald Trump’s first full month in office, according to the latest U.S. Department of Agriculture (USDA) data.
The most recent USDA data shows that 5,829,890 people discontinued their participation in food stamps received through the Supplemental Nutrition Assistance Program (SNAP) since February 2017, Trump’s first full month in office.
Overall food stamp participation had consistently declined since 2013 back when the Obama administration was in power and enrollment in the program reached its peak in U.S. history.
After 2013, SNAP enrollment plummeted once state legislatures passed laws requiring food stamp recipients to work, attend school, volunteer, or participate in job training for a set number of hours per week to receive benefits.
This win truly showcases the difference between the Obama administration and Donald Trump.
Trump wants to help give Americans the means to support themselves on their own, while Obama wanted to gain voters by giving away free stuff.
Food stamps are not meant to be a permanent means of support but rather a temporary support to help people get back to work.
