REPORT Trump Administration Considering Executive Order On Welfare
President Trump and his team are weighing whether to issue an executive order that would require federal agencies to review welfare programs that assist low-income earners, Politico reported Monday.

The decision is part of wave of changes the White House is considering making to the nation's welfare system, according to the report.

Two administration officials told the newspaper that the administration sent around a draft of the order last week to agencies seeking comments about the proposed draft plan.

The draft instructs the federal agencies to look at their current programs and regulations in place, and then propose ways to update and reform the welfare system.
