President Trump’s crackdown on food stamps could affect 3 million people

More from this show

The Trump administration would like to tighten up eligibility requirements for those receiving food stamps automatically because they get TANF, or welfare benefits. If implemented, the change would mean 8,000 families in Arizona could lose their food stamps benefits and 3.1 million nationwide could lose benefits.
