During Barack Hussein Obama’s sham of a presidency, he put millions of Americans and a number of government programs on welfare, forcing taxpayers to pay for his ridiculous agendas. Two months into his presidency, Donald Trump is already making it clear that big changes are coming in terms of how welfare is handed out in this country.
The Huffington Post reported that Trump’s Department of Agriculture just announced a change in the way that food stamps or now known as the Supplemental Nutrition Assistance Plan (SNAP) will be doled out. Officials confirmed that the department will now be stricter as to who is eligible for the program.
Though the eligibility guidelines were updated just three years ago, they have never been implemented since. Section 4008 of the 2014 Farm Bill denied benefits to two groups, those “convicted of federal aggravated sexual abuse, murder, sexual exploitation and abuse of children, sexual assault, or similar offenses under state laws, as well as those who are not in compliance with the terms of their sentence or parole or are fleeing felons, from receiving food stamps.”
As soon as Trump took office, ordered the Department of Agriculture to start enforcing them strictly. He is trying to scale back the nearly 43 million Americans on SNAP, a program that is expected to cost taxpayers $45 billion this coming fiscal year thanks to Obama.
