President Trump says tax bill will help farmers

President Trump says tax bill will help farmers

Trump unveiled the effort at the annual convention of the American Farm Bureau Federation, promising the administration was taking giant steps toward bringing neglected rural communities into the modern era.

"President Trump has listened to my concerns on numerous occasions, as evidenced by today's speech, and those concerns have certainly not fallen on deaf ears", said Roberts, R-Kan. "We want our national anthem respected also". He pointed to the estate tax changes and doubling the exemption, that he says will help keep farms in the family.

Here's what to expect when President Donald Trump comes to Nashville on Monday.

"If he can share a word or two to give (the farmers) something to hang on to and have some confidence in what we are doing because none of us really know what's going on behind closed doors", Duvall said. He then touted how the $1.5 trillion tax overhaul helps working families, small businesses, and farmers.

AFBF President Zippy Duvall said Trump's visit marked a watershed in D.C. politics.

Trump's remarks will bring him face-to-face with numerous rural American voters who helped deliver him the White House in 2016. According to CNN's exit polls, 61% of rural voters backed Trump, compared with 34% who voted for Hillary Clinton. "You are so lucky that I gave you that privilege".

"I guess you like it right? We have cut 22 regulations for every one new regulation". "Working with colleagues on both sides of the aisle to increase funding and access to high-speed internet for our rural communities will remain a top priority of mine in 2018".

While President Trump's executive order marks the potential to improve access to high-speed internet in rural areas, a budget proposed a year ago by his administration called for the elimination of 19 independent agencies including the Appalachian Regional Commission (ARC), which has dedicated significant resources to expanding broadband infrastructure in Appalachia.

President Donald Trump has signed two presidential orders to boost "broader, faster - and better internet coverage" in rural areas after addressing the largest general farm organization in the country.

White House officials said all work was in the early stages and did not offer an overall timeline. The Farm Bureau ran a public relations campaign against the rule and called it "dangerous and unlawful". The task force's recommended several new measures seeking to enhance broadband access, improving quality of life, generate a reliable workforce, advance technological innovations and economic development.

Existing federal programs along those lines are administered by the Department of Agriculture's Rural Utilities Service, the Department of Commerce's National Telecommunications and Information Administration, and through the Universal Service Fund, which is supervised by Federal Communications Commission.

The president left Nashville and went to Atlanta to watch the College Football Playoff Championship Game. "And we can not let anything happen to that", Trump said. Trump left out that half of the equation. "Look up @realdonaldtrump - it's the only way around the media..."

Be Civil - It's OK to have a difference in opinion but there's no need to be a jerk.
