Cutting Off the Voters to Spite His Face

Food insecurity and hunger affects 40 million Americans. 12 million of those affected are children. Many of those who live with food insecurity rely on food stamps or other federal food aid programs.

Now you know who and his administration are preparing to potentially to remove 3.1 million people from the rolls of Americans who receive food aid assistance. When he ran in 2016, he made himself out to be a man of the people. In spite of his so called wealth, fame and status as a cultural icon, he made all sorts of promises to the voters of America. One of the reasons he is now President is because he made himself appealing to the White working class who felt like their voices were not being heard or respected in the corridors of power.

In potentially taking away this badly needed resource, he is cutting off the voters to spite his face.

If he and his advisers are smart, they will keep this program intact. Especially given that we have a Presidential election coming up next fall and he is desperate to win a second term.
