President Trump's short tenure has been nothing short of game changing. He's pushing hard to drain the swamp and he's not done yet. The Washington Times is reporting that Trump is going to smash yet another Obama-era policy:

The Trump administration moved Wednesday to reimpose work requirements for Americans on welfare, revoking an Obama-era policy that had urged states to apply for waivers exempting the poor from having to show they were either getting job training or looking for work.

Requiring work was a key part of the 1996 welfare reform law enacted by a GOP-led Congress and signed by then-President Bill Clinton, and Mr. Trump’s move restores the law as written.

Welfare reform was last implemented in the 1990's by a Republican congress led by Speaker Newt Gingrich.

It appears Trump is looking to replicate some of Speaker Gingrich's success.
