Thank You President Trump! US Households on Food Stamps Drops Below 20 Million

Under Barack Obama one in five US households, or twenty percent of US households, were on food stamps in 2013.

The Obama administration paid recruiters to sign up people on food stamps.

At the same time, the Obama administration also pursued a “partnership” with the Mexican government to “raise awareness” about food stamps. The administration used a Spanish soap opera format to push food stamps on illegal immigrants and Spanish-speaking Americans.

But those days are over.
The number of US households on food stamps dropped to below 20 million for the first time in eight years!

Thank you President Trump! reported:

The number of households on food stamps has dipped below 20 million for the first time in eight years, according to the latest data released by the U.S. Department of Agriculture (USDA).

The latest data from the USDA reveals that the number of households on food stamps in February 2018 dropped to 19,992,124—the first time it fell below 20 million since September 2010, when 19,979,385 households were enrolled in the Supplemental Nutrition Assistance Program (SNAP).

The USDA notes that not only is the number of households receiving food stamps at a record low level, but the number of people enrolled in food stamps has also gone down. From January to February of this year alone, overall food stamp enrollment dropped from 40,640,170 to 40,032,131.
