Trump Thinks Only Black People Are on Welfare, but, Really, White Americans Receive Most Benefits



Trump Thinks Only Black People Are on Welfare, but, Really, White Americans Receive Most Benefits

President Donald Trump was apparently unaware that not all—in fact, the vast majority—of welfare beneficiaries are not black as recently as last March, according to a new report.

In the spring of 2017, the newly elected president met with members of the Congressional Black Caucus. During that meeting, one of the members mentioned to Trump that welfare reform would be detrimental to her constituents— adding, “Not all of whom are black,” according to NBC News.

The president was incredulous. “Really? Then what are they?”

1. Trump has zero clue.

He gets his info from his buddy at the National Inquirer and Fox Noise,

Most of the so called Welfare recipients are older White Americans living in Nursing Homes.

3. Without access to the entire conversation, I wouldn't interpret it that way.

I think he was surprised that a black woman was elected by constituents who were not all black.

From the exchange, as described, "not all of whom are black" modifies "constituents," not the population on welfare.

Still makes it racist - but not as off the wall as believing only blacks are on welfare.
