As Breitbart News reports:

The USDA data reveals that the number of participants in the Supplemental Nutrition Assistance Program (SNAP) has consistently declined every month since the beginning of the fiscal year (FY) 2018—for a total of eight months.

Using the latest data from the USDA, here is the breakdown of how many people discontinued their SNAP benefits each month over the past eight months of FY 2018:

October to November- 4,050,688
November to December- 360,995
December to January- 737,465
January to February- 385,456
February to March- 39,701
March to April- 426,085
April to May- 139,570
May to June- 143,834

Meantime, as The Washington Post has had to admit, middle-class incomes are at their highest level ever:

Middle-class income rose to the highest recorded levels in 2017 and the national poverty rate declined as the benefits of the strong economy lifted the fortunes of more Americans, the U.S. Census reported Wednesday.

The median U.S. household earned $61,372 last year, meaning half of the families in the country brought in more income than this and half earned less.

“We’re continuing to see a shift from part-time to full-time work, so some of that could explain an increase in income,” Trudi Renwick, an assistant division chief at Census Bureau, told the Post.

Make no mistake, this economy is the result of POTUS Donald Trump and his policies, with some assistance from the GOP-controlled Congress in terms of slashing bureaucracy and passing tax reform.

Not Obama’s.
