When Donald Trump ran for office in 2016, he vowed to make America great again. His promised strategies to complete this task included bettering the economy, reducing crime, cracking down on illegal immigration, restoring jobs, and ensuring that the United States is taken more seriously on the world stage. Despite mindless “resistance” from rabid progressives and the Democrat Party, the president continues to make good on his promises, especially as the 2020 presidential election gets further and further along.
In keeping with his promises, more than 6.2 million individuals have gotten off food stamps since President Trump’s time in office, as documented by Breitbart News.
Despite what the left-wingers will claim, reducing dependency on government is actually very good. It allows people to stand on their own two feet and pave a way for themselves which doesn’t rely upon living off the dime of others. There are no legitimate reasons to oppose this, other than Democrats being disappointed at their decreasing lack of control over people’s lives, hence reducing their political relevance and power.
A Closer Look at Fewer Food Stamp Recipients
Since President Trump’s time in office, he’s lauded the merits of self-sufficiency. This can be seen throughout the policies which the president has implemented; in regards to food stamp recipients, the 6.2 million decline in enrolled individuals also includes 2.7 million households.
At this current time, there are roughly 18.2 million households and 36 million individuals who rely upon food stamp programs, such as the Supplemental Nutrition Assistance Program (SNAP), in order to support themselves.
The president has furthermore expressed an interest in allowing entry to legal immigrants who will be able to financially support themselves without relying upon food stamps, welfare, or other government programs.
The Predictable Response from the Left
If Trump cured cancer tomorrow, the left-wing would rake him through the coals for putting doctors out of business. The reality is that Democrats detest this president and there’s absolutely nothing he can do which would possibly change their minds. Already, progressives and other leftists have begun branding the reduction of food stamps recipients as racist and harmful.
Expecting people to work hard and be self-sufficient in life is not racist or harmful. If Democrats want to talk about harm and so-called racism, they should know this: true racism is believing that certain groups are inherently incapable of competing at the same levels as everyone else and therefore deserve to be coddled. Former President Bush called it out best when he mentioned, “the soft bigotry of low expectations.”
Reducing dependency on the United States government and promoting independence and economic autonomy should always be celebrated in this country.
