Was That Fake: Red Cross & Child Support

- Did the Red Cross steal Harvey relief donations from churches - under the protection of an Obama-era executive order?

No.

A woman named Gina Nelms posted a Facebook live video claiming the Red Cross "threatened the pastors" and took donations. She then says the Red Cross "turned around and sold the water" and put the rest into dumpsters.

She claims it was all "protected by Barack Obama."

The executive order she's referring to does not empower the government to "take whatever resources they want." 

Even if it did, the Red Cross is not a government agency. It's a charity. 

 

Did President Trump abolish child support as of next year?

No.

The fake story claims Congress voted on a bill that would end child support, and allow the government to take a child away from parents if any abuse is reported. 

This whole thing came from the prank-generator site "react 365". 

 

So if you see it, do not share it.
