Praise for Trump's commitment to rural America

Praise for Trump's commitment to rural America

To that end, Trump signed two executive orders as a first step toward expanding access to broadband internet in rural areas.

American farmers will be able to keep their estates in the family because of the recently approved tax bill's reduction of the death tax, President Donald Trump told the American Farm Bureau Federation's annual meeting on Monday in Nashville, Tennessee.

Trump also talked up how the new tax law rolled back the estate tax by doubling the exemption threshold, meaning few farmers would have to pay those taxes.

"President Trump's visit today is a continuation of that commitment and his reception by the members of the American Farm Bureau show just how critical this support is for rural Americans and economies".

Among its recommendations, Trump said, "we are proposing infrastructure reforms to ensure that our rural communities have access to the best roadways, railways and waterways anywhere in the world".

Some farmers view the canceling of certain regulations by the Trump administration as harmful to competition and smaller operators.

According to the Federal Communications Commission, 39 percent of rural Americans, or 23 million people, lack sufficient broadband access.

"We are fighting for our farmers.and we're fighting for our country, and for our great American flag", Trump said.

"I'm so honored to be the first President to address the American Farm Bureau in more than 25 years", said President Trump. Today's executive orders echo the important steps Republicans, led by Governor Haslam, took a year ago in passing the Tennessee Broadband Accessibility Act, ensuring economic opportunity exists no matter where you live and includes having access to high speed internet. So I'll be back, I think.

Ag exports account for 20% of farm income, so Trump's campaign threats to tear up trade agreements caused anxiety in farm country, although producers voted overwhelmingly for him because of his platform of tax reform, regulatory relief, and support for corn ethanol. "That's very key so we want to send that message to him". He also said that farmers would be exempt of inheritance tax. "To level the playing field for all of our farmers and ranchers as well as our manufacturers we are reviewing all of our trade agreements", he said.

"Farm country is God's country. That means some planning is needed and farmers and ranchers should be talking with their accountants to figure out the best way to make the new provisions work for them". Supporting broadband tower facilities in rural America and federal properties managed by the Department of the Interior. 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".
