A new executive order signed by President Donald Trump on Tuesday (April 10) will attach work requirements to welfare programs and calls on federal agencies to either set up or strengthen existing programs.
Trump has long suggested that some recipients of welfare are abusing the system, stating back in October that “people are taking advantage of the system and other people aren’t receiving what they need to live.” He also suggested during his election campaign that some people on welfare were well-off.
“I know people that work three jobs and they live next to somebody who doesn’t work at all. And the person who is not working at all and has no intention of working at all is making more money and doing better than the person that’s working his and her ass off,” he said on the campaign trail.
