Trump: Some Welfare Recipients Make More Than Person Working Their "Ass Off"


President Donald Trump delivered remarks on tax reform Wednesday in St. Charles, Missouri. Trump also spoke about welfare reform and said he has met people who are on welfare, do not "work at all," and make more money than a person who is "working his and her ass off."

From his remarks:

PRESIDENT TRUMP: And by the way, what happened, what happened, is Obama took a long time, years to get Obamacare, right? Again, 10 months. We've had two runs at it. We're coming closer, closer. I think now we have a plan that's going to be great. But we're not talking about it until after taxes, and then we'll take care of health care.

Then we will have done tax cuts, the biggest in history, health care, phenomenal health care. I know you don't want this -- welfare reform. Does anyone want welfare reform?


And infrastructure. But welfare reform, I see it, and I've talked to people. 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. And it's not going to happen. Not going to happen.
