Trump says workers make less money than welfare recipients

14 posts in this topic

Quote

At a recent speech in Missouri in which he vowed new welfare restrictions, Trump said that “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 [or] her [butt] off.”Link

Its tempting to write this off as part of a pattern of our president's usual gibberish. But he may have a point. With wages not keeping up with the standard of living, it may really be true that those who work are worse off than people on welfare. But if that is the case, I'm not sure that driving more people into poverty by forcing them to find a job is really the answer.

But then, that depends on the question. And really, the question is, "How can we pay for tax cuts for the rich?" The answer, of course, is by squeezing it from the blood of the poor and working class.

Keep the serfs focused on those below them as the wealthy continue to take more of the pie.  I have to give Trump credit, he understands the sheer stupidity of Americans perfectly.

Ironically a lot of the people he’s talking about help put him in office. Then again he did say he loves the uneducated and that he could shoot someone on fifth avenue and not lose any support.

and sadly many of those people seem to post here. Those who put him in office don't care what happens to them, just as long as the dotard is sticking his fingers in the eyes of those responsible for taking things away from the aggrieved (read white working class)....

The Protestant/Puritan Work Ethic. 

It’s as American as Apple Pie to think that people are wealthy because they work harder and people are poor because they’re lazy or have bad morals.

Both excellent points; Trump is the great exploiter.
