6.2 million individuals are now off food stamps thanks to the policies of President Donald Trump
Regardless of what the Democrats think, most people would rather work for their food. It gives them a sense of pride to be able to provide for their families and to contribute to society.
NEW: 6.2 Million Individuals Off Food Stamps Under Trumphttps://t.co/NDMLdfknGo

More than 6.2 million individuals dropped off food stamps since President Donald Trump completed his first full month in office, according to the latest data from the U.S. Department of Agriculture (USDA).
The most recent USDA data shows that 6,268,285 individuals discontinued their participation in the Supplemental Nutrition Assistance Program (SNAP)— the program in charge of food stamps— since February 2017 when Trump finished his first month as president.
Individual and household food stamp participation has consistently declined since 2013 back when the Obama administration was in power and enrollment in the program reached its highest point in U.S. history.
After 2013, SNAP enrollment plunged once state legislatures passed laws requiring food stamp recipients to work, attend school, volunteer, or participate in job training for at least 20 hours per week to receive benefits.
Food stamp participation plummeted even further once President Trump took office, as 6.2 million individuals and 2.7 million households dropped out of the Supplemental Nutrition Assistance Program (SNAP) since his first full month in office. More
Pay attention @TheDemocrats .. this is how the grown ups run America.

Wow, jobs and the economy are working great. How about that. Thank you, President Trump. More bad news for the Demoncrats. They hate it when people they supposedly love are able to make it on their own. It will be interesting to see how the left will try and twist this around. We know they will, too. Also, I’m betting the MSM won’t be reporting this.
Democrats consider Obama the greatest President. He had a record number of people on food stamps. They consider Trump the worst President ever. He moved a record number of people off of food stamps. That tells you something about their priorities!
