More
than 5.9 million individuals dropped off food stamps since President
Donald Trump assumed office in February 2017, according to the latest
data released by the U.S. Department of Agriculture (USDA). The most
up-to-date USDA data shows that 5,975,736 people discontinued using
food stamps, also known as the Supplemental Nutrition Assistance
Program (SNAP), between February 2017— when Trump completed his
first full month in office— and September 2019. Household
participation in the food stamp program has gone down as well, with
2,493,912 households discontinuing their participation in SNAP,
according to the USDA. There are currently 36,322,055 individuals
and 18,443,991 households enrolled in the food stamp program. Still,
USDA officials said those numbers are “preliminary” due to the
2018 government shutdown, which affected food stamp administration at
the beginning of 2019.
