President Trump addresses farmers in Nashville speech

President Trump addresses farmers in Nashville speech

The FCC estimates about 39 percent of rural Americans lack access to quality broadband, which she attributed to a lack of interest from broadband providers.

Randy Kron, Indiana Farm Bureau president, applauded President Donald Trump's recognition of American farmers and their contributions to the country.

"I support a bill that includes crop insurance. And we want our national anthem respected also".

Jennifer Jacobs, a White House reporter for Bloomberg News, reported that the audience really loved Trump.

"Small and mid-sized businesses will receive massive tax cuts. They'll be able to deduct 20% of their business income". American farmers send about $2.6 billion of corn to Mexico every year, a practice that could be jeopardized if Trump tears up NAFTA.

Trump spoke at the American Farm Bureau Federation convention in Nashville.

Republicans for years have criticized the estate tax as particularly harmful for family farmers, though only a small number of small businesses and farms were estimated to be subject to the tax under the old tax code. He remarked that it was a tough provision of the tax bill to get approved.

President Barack Obama called the rule mandatory to protect drinking water and the environment, while critics - like those quoted in Politico - said it gives the government "carte blanche to. penalize landowners every time a cow walks through a ditch".




"These markets we're looking at are flat, and if we don't push exports they're going to remain flat", Mackey said.

"I was pleased he acknowledged the importance of exports and that he is working to renegotiate a better NAFTA".

In his Farm Bureau speech, the president said the administration is "reviewing all our trade agreements to make sure that they are fair and reciprocal". Earlier in the day, Perdue said USDA will be "right there providing whatever counsel Congress request or require" and that USDA will be unveiling its own farm bill principles to "use as a roadmap to guide them along the way". There had been reports that Trump was wavering about supporting crop insurance in a new farm bill, a concept Roberts supports.

In a lighthearted moment, Trump told the crowd, "Oh are you happy that you voted for me". President Trump stopped the streak Monday with his visit to AFBF in Nashville.

A reference to immigration reform was met with less enthusiastic applause. With the voice of rural America leading the way, and in close collaboration with local, state, and tribal leaders, 22 federal agencies, offices, and executive departments accepted the challenge to make rural America great again. Trump said that's not going to happen anymore.

Trump also praised the work of Congresswoman Marsha Blackburn (R-Tenn.) for getting behind rural broadband efforts.

Later, he presented a regulatory scenario under the Democrats.
