Nearly 1.5 million Americans dropped off the food stamp rolls since President Trump’s inauguration in January 2017, according to the latest U.S. Department of Agriculture (USDA) statistics on food stamp enrollment.

Supplemental Nutrition Assistance Program (SNAP) participation dropped to 41,203,721 as of July 2017, the most recent data available from the USDA, from 42,691,363 in January 2017 when Trump took office.

According to the latest data, SNAP enrollment decreased by 3.48 percent, or 1,487,642, since Donald Trump began his presidency.

From May to July alone, nearly 400,000 Americans got off of food stamps, and the trend shows that enrollment has been consistently falling every month of Trump’s presidency.

Here is the breakdown of how many people dropped off the food stamp rolls each month of 2017:

  1. Not that I'm complaining, but ...

    I'm willing to bet the majority of the people no longer gaining benefits are illegal aliens which are scared that they are (or will be) on a list for easy pickup. I'm hoping the others are newly employed persons in the work force.

  2. Sadly you'll never hear that on the liberal MSM> They only produce faux anti-Trump stories. America is on the brink and in my opinion even President Trump and his silent majority supporters won't be able to save it. :(

      We'll go down fighting, if so.
