President Donald Trump on Wednesday said the final massive agriculture bill that the U.S. Congress sends to him to sign into law should have work requirements for people receiving food stamps, the grocery subsidies officially called “SNAP.”

“#FarmBill with SNAP work requirements will bolster farmers and get America back to work. Pass the Farm Bill with SNAP work requirements!” Trump tweeted, as the two chambers of Congress begin reconciling separate bills they recently passed into a single piece of legislation for him to sign.
