Trump claims credit for food; letters land in trash

Hundreds of food boxes the federal government sent to help needy Luzerne County families contained something more than the usual milk, eggs and produce — a signed letter from President Donald Trump taking credit for providing the sustenance.

Volunteers removed and discarded the letters before doling out the food. See the story here
