President Trump’s re-election this week released a statement touting that fewer Americans are on food stamps.

“Today the USDA announced a one-month reduction in food stamp enrollment of nearly 600,000 people, further adding to the overall reduction in food stamp enrollment of 2 million people in President Trump’s first year in office,” the campaign said in a statement.

“While food stamp enrollment dramatically increased throughout the Obama administration, the news from the USDA today demonstrates that President Trump’s economic policies are bringing hard-working Americans back into the workforce and able-bodied adults off government assistance.”

Furthermore, President Trump recently signed an order on welfare reform directing agencies to issue updated rules for those receiving the food stamp benefits.

Among the requirements being pushed by Republicans are heightened work requirements.
