Donald Trump’s plan to stop poor people from receiving government assistance has been halted by a federal judge in Washington.
Bloomberg reports: In an 84-page ruling, Chief U.S. District Judge Beryl Howell issued a nationwide injunction that blocks two of the three changes the White House had made to the nation’s Supplemental Nutrition Assistance Program, or SNAP.
“As a global pandemic poses widespread health risks, guaranteeing that government officials at both the federal and state levels have flexibility to address the nutritional needs of residents and ensure their well-being through programs like SNAP, is essential,” Howell said,
At a time like this, when the whole country is in a state of panic, it is almost unthinkable that the President of the United States is actually trying to cut government assistance from the people that need it the most.
Trump has made it clear that he does not care about poor people. Ironically, a lot of Trump supporters are poor people that need government assistance, yet for some reason, these same people support his policies that devastate them in the immediate future. You cannot buy this kind of stupid.
