President Trump Addresses AFBF Convention Talks NAFTA, Delivers Executive Orders

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

President Donald Trump is hailing the Republican tax overhaul law during a pitch to rural America at a meeting of the American Farm Bureau Federation. "Corrupt politics left our economies hurting, stagnant and millions of hard-working employees completely forgotten. But they, guess what, are not forgotten anymore".

"Farm country is God's country", he declared.

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

"I will take the first step to expand access to broadband internet in rural America so you can compete on a level playing field, which you were not able to do", Trump said. "That is a tremendous thing", he said of the ability to deduct it all in one year as opposed to over many years.

Trump received a standing ovation when noting that the estate tax had been rolled back under the new tax plan. They're hopeful Trump's actions will help farmers and ranchers.

At Berry Airfield, home of the 118th Wing of the Air National Guard, Congressman Scott DesJarlais was among those who welcomed President Trump to Tennessee as the President deplaned from Air Force One.

President Trump will tell farmers Monday that his administration is helping to restore rural prosperity by cutting taxes and rolling back regulations because "our farmers are the future".

"We are going to end chain migration". Trump singled out the Waters of the United States rule, now being withdrawn following an executive order he signed in the first weeks of his administration.

The Rev. Jesse Jackson says the halftime song at the College Football Championship game should be "We Shall Overcome".

Trump said America's farmers show "the hard work, grit and self-reliance we need to. make America great again". "I look forward to working with President Trump as we write the upcoming Farm Bill".

Many farmers want trade to be expanded, not restricted.

Trump formed the task force, which includes representatives from Cabinet agencies and independent agencies like the Federal Communications Commission, in an April executive order. The other calls on the Department of the Interior to install broadband towers on property it manages, a potentially vast portfolio of national parks, wildlife refuges and Indian territories.

Trump also made no mention of reform of immigrant farm labor programs, such as the H-2A program, another concern to many producers, although he had this short comment. The 2014 farm law made the federally subsidized program the major USA farm support at around $8 billion a year, ahead of crop subsidies and land stewardship.
