President Trump Slashes One Bloated Welfare Program – Saves Taxpayers Countless Dollars
By Ben Dutka|July 12, 2018

President Donald Trump has kept his promise:

He promised to put more money back into the pockets of hard-working American citizens, while taking it away from those who simply leech off the system.

During the Barack Obama years, government assistance spiraled out of control (as it does under any liberal) and we spent billions on entirely unproductive members of society.

But Trump is here now, and his “America First” strategy is paying off.

By strengthening the economy and putting people back to work, fewer and fewer people require assistance. And as a result, productivity continues to rise.

The President’s efforts have been so effective that the Trump administration has now hit an 8-year high … or rather, an 8-year low.

Via Breitbart:

Food stamp participation dropped below 40 million for the first time in eight years, according to the latest numbers on food stamp enrollment from the U.S. Department of Agriculture (USDA).

The most recent USDA data reveals that 39,604,428 people were enrolled in the Supplemental Nutrition Assistance Program (SNAP)—the program that administers food stamps—as of April 2018.

The last time enrollment dipped below 40 million was in February 2010, when 39,588,993 people received SNAP benefits.”

Food stamp enrollment has continued to decline in recent months as well; here’s how many people got off food stamps each month in the past fiscal year:

October to November- 4,015,110

November to December- 358,242

December to January- 734,178

January to February- 608,039

February to March- 32,294

March to April- 494,961

With favorable economic conditions, Trump has lured big business back to America, and more jobs are now available than ever before.

All told, 2.5 million people have discontinued their SNAP participation under Trump, and that’s no small feat.

Not only are people going back to work, but Trump’s team has targeted the mass corruption associated with the program as well, something Obama never bothered to do.

The result?

An overall healthier economy, a more ambitious and productive nation, and yes, more of your hard-earned cash in your wallet!
