Washington – On Tuesday morning, the world found out that Donald J. Trump has been elected as President. While any Americans are in disbelief that the real estate tycoon is now Commander in Chief, Trump has began to lay out his plans for American once he is sworn into the White House.

Trump officials told reporters that he’s diligently working to ‘Make America Great Again’ by eliminating a massive amount of welfare benefits for millions of Americans in efforts to get people back to work.

The president elect told reporters during a brief press-conference that the specifics regarding the cut backs are in progress but are not finalized, however he anticipates that the federal government will eliminate close to 6 million benefits, currently provided to families across America by March 2017.

According to economists throughout the United States, a massive cut in public assistance benefits does not come as a shock and has been anticipated for several years. According to Dr. Johnathan Levitz, an economics professor at Stanford University, many professionals within his industry blame President Obama for unprecedented amount of Americans currently on welfare. Dr. Levitz told a Fox reporter that economists often make a seemingly clear connection between the over-saturation of welfare recipients and Obamacare introduced by President Obama encouraging individuals to avoid looking for steady employment.

According to officials, the welfare cuts will impact approximately 8,789,435 Americans. The cut back is anticipated to impact millions of impoverished Americans. The mass-cut of welfare benefits will impact approximately 8% of the current amount of Americans currently living in households taking federal welfare benefits according to data collected from the U.S. Bureau of Labor Statistics.

According to government officials, several alternative solutions were explored while attempting to solve the current over-saturation of welfare recipients, including a uniform decrease in benefits. The mass-cut in welfare benefits was widely viewed as the most promising solution for future growth and stability. Though this cut will impact all 50 states, select states are anticipated to terminate a larger volume of benefits per capita.

President-Elect Trump concluded his early-morning press conference by informing reporters that he anticipates the details surrounding the cut in welfare benefits to be finalized by early February 2017.

    Homelessness will increase. Poverty will increase and more American children will go to bed hungry. These cuts will kill people.

      and crime, because that’s what happens when people are starving and cold

      Then their parents need to get a job very quickly. Then kids will start working as soon as they can since theyll be hungry and cold. You dont get generations of homeless people, you do get generations of deadbeats.

        They are already working and many of them are juggling several jobs at once, but the cost of living (and basic living mind you, rent, utilities) out surpassed minimum wage long ago. This is the generation of poverty that these cuts will hurt.

        The deadbeats and the welfare queens were largely made up by Reagan, who gave us the homeless crisis we are still dealing with today. Trumps legacy will be worse.

        Oh yeah, let’s squelch labor laws and get those lazy 12 year olds working again. Is this the America you want to live in?

      Yes all we can do is pray

  • David Klaus

    How many of those children go hungry anyways because food benefits are sold for cash, and having another child is like getting a promotion worth more money kids are still neglected

    I’ve finally figured it out. Instead of resenting welfare people, realize first, people on welfare arnt even living. They just exists. Welfare is just an existance, not a life. To a great deal of welfare people welfare is a goal. When a young lady gets pregant, now she gonna get her own check. Then the babys daddy moves in, and like magic, it begins. More babies, more babys daddys, on and on. This stuff goes on and on. There was a thought a few yrs ago, that a welfare state was created on purpose. Because, too many people competing for the same job, get a third of them thinking welfare ain’t so bad, a third to actually work, and a third to collect the riches. Wow!
