Trump put signed letters in USDA food boxes. Food banks took them out.
President Trump is including personally signed letters in USDA food boxes, outraging food bank workers and anti-hunger experts. “It essentially blackmails nonpartisan food charities into aiding Trump’s reelection campaign,” one anti-hunger expert told The Washington Post. Many major food banks are removing the letters, which appear on a White House letterhead and tell Americans in both English and Spanish that we will get through this crisis stronger than ever. Add Trump’s signature to the bottom of a laundry list of problems that have riddled the Farmers to Families Food Box program, from religious groups soliciting donations to unequal distribution of boxes.
