Clash Quiz: How Many Dropped Off Food Stamps Since Trump – 88K? 327K? 3.5M?

The number of people registered for Food Stamps has continued to drop since President Trump took office in January 2017. Here’s how leftists will spin these numbers…

The leftists in the Media(D) have claimed that fear of providing personal information has deterred immigrants from applying for the program even though they may qualify. This has been one of the issues that President Trump says out loud that many other politicians refuse to acknowledge — a huge percentage of immigrants are on some sort of welfare program.

What they won’t say is that unemployment is down dramatically, which means that more people no longer need the program.

The latest numbers from the United States Department of Agriculture (USDA) have revealed that since President Trump’s first full month in office, 3.5 million Americans no longer receive food stamps. When President Trump took office, 42,134,301 Americans were registered for SNAP benefits, but that has dropped to 38,577,141 individuals.

Trump critics will cite that the number has been dropping since 2013, which it has, but the decline has been consistent throughout President Trump’s first term in office.

It’s not just that more people are working now, but that the Trump administration’s USDA has sought to tighten up welfare programs including SNAP.

A recent study showed that food stamp usage among people who recently immigrated to the United States in the past five years dropped by 10 percent.

The November study from Children’s HealthWatch noted that the drop in enrollment among recent legal immigrants occurred mainly because of a yet-to-be implemented Trump administration policy which would keep recent immigrants from gaining permanent residency in the U.S. if they used food stamps or other forms of welfare.

The decline is continuing despite the anti-Trump leftists that continue to attempt to thwart every policy put forward by the Trump administration. California, for example, used loopholes to keep more than 800,000 childless, able-bodied, federal food stamp recipients from having to work in order to obtain the benefit.

Millions fewer receiving government benefits like food stamps because they no longer need them is a great thing and the Trump administration should continue to reform the entitlement programs.
