According to Department of Agriculture which manages the food benefits, 38,845,997 Americans participated in the Supplemental Nutrition Assistance Program (SNAP) as of the end of July. Thats the lowest number since 38,184,306 people were on SNAP in 2009, Breitbart reported.

And yet the folks who have benefited a lot from this have voted to put the Democrats back into the House who want to destroy everything he has done.

Inflation has not kicked up and the unemployment rate hasn’t dropped nearly as much as the hiring numbers indicate it should’ve....and food stamp usage is significantly down.
All that should tell you a lot of people who were not counted as “unemployed” under Obama but who were on foodstamps are now getting jobs. Thank you President Trump.
How many are still collecting food stamp money after finding a job? The government can’t find 30 million illegals, 10 most wanted by FBI criminals, but they can keep tabs on who should stop getting food stamps? Yeah right!
Bid deal. Losing - Dems stealing elections.
If everyone is working why have food stamps??
Actually - if Obama hadn't put so many on the programs, the numbers wouldn't be the same......
