Right now he is winning the war on poverty, Total end of poverty will never happen. But people are becoming less poor.

But poverty is relative person in the US on welfare is in the top 40% in wealth in the world.

We have the highest rate of homelessness on record. So much for a war on poverty. Yes, the rich are getting richer.

Your second statement is meaningless. Where do our poor stand alongside the poor of the rest of the Western world? hmmmm?
Don't include the African and middle Eastern nations. We do not compare ourselves to Nigeria and Iraq and you know it.
Where do the poor of America stack up compared to the poor in U.K., France, Spain, Germany, Switzerland, Netherlands, etc.
Hmm?

Food Stamp Recipients Drop Under Trump | The Daily Caller

Food stamp recipients down 2M under Trump, USDA figures show | Fox News
Well, if a rightwing agitprop site like the Daily Caller or a propaganda site like Fox says it, it MUST be true, right?

Best to ignore "neutral" news sources like the ones I cited, huh?

Okay, thanks for admitting I am correct.

Since you have no way of attacking the truth, you attack the reporter of the truth.

Thanks for playing

Buh Bye
