Donald Trump on Poverty

Trump believes the answer to poverty is creating more incentives for people to work.


SEAN HANNITY: Let me ask you, would you be able to get 50 million Americans out of poverty?

DONALD TRUMP: I would. I would- I would create incentives for people to work. People don’t have an incentive. They make more money by sitting there doing nothing than they make if they have a job.

HANNITY: You’d take the incentive away.

TRUMP: We have to create incentives that they actually do much better by working. Right now, they have a disincentive. They have an incentive not to work.

HANNITY: You would insist for food stamps, welfare, and any assistance that you have to work for it.

TRUMP: Well, you could – you could start looking at things like that. And actually Bill Clinton wanted that, a lot of people wanted that over the years. You know, a lot of democrats frankly wanted that. A lot of liberals wanted that. The problem we have right now, we have a society that sits back and says we’re not going to do anything. And eventually the 50 percent cannot carry, and it’s unfair to them, but cannot carry the other 50 percent.

HANNITY: So you become President, you talked about new trade deals, you talk about the importance of balancing a budget, not cutting Social Security entitlements. How quickly can you get 46 million Americans off food stamps and 50 million Americans off poverty? Give me the four things that you would do immediately to jump start the economy.

TRUMP: Well, it’s actually not four things.

HANNITY: Five things?

TRUMP: No, it’s not a question of things. It’s a question of incentives. We have to create incentives. We have to restructure our tax system so that people create incentives. You can do zones. You can do lots of different things to get people to work. We have to change – I mean, we have a very massive change coming up because this country cannot sustain itself. It just can’t.
