Trump Backs Crop Insurance, Says NAFTA "Not the Easiest Negotiation'"

Trump Backs Crop Insurance, Says NAFTA

Trump spoke Monday to the 99th American Farm Bureau Federation Annual Convention in Nashville, Tenn., pointing out he was the first president to speak at AFBF since President George H.W. Bush in 1992.

Lawrence MacAulay, Canada's agriculture and agri-food minister, said Sunday in Nashville that he felt the mutual hope across North America is that President Trump's North American Free Trade Agreement negotiations won't "break something that's not broken".

Trump touted the just-passed tax reform bill and the relief it will bring to farmers and ranchers. Many family farms are small businesses that will benefit from tax cuts, dependable domestic energy and infrastructure improvements, including rural Internet.

The president assured the largely sympathetic crowd he would end the "regulatory assault on [their] way of life" and put more money back in farmers' pockets.

Richard T. Cullen, the executive director of Connect Americans Now-an advocacy group formed by Microsoft that intends to help expand broadband internet access-offered support for President Trump's order.

"The Republican Party's support for rural communities includes the President's promise to cut burdensome regulations that stifle growth".

President Trump pushed a rural agenda that he said would promote prosperity, and he urged the adoption of solutions by a task force, among them, increasing internet connectivity for rural America. Trump's mention of that repeal delivered him one of several standing ovations.

The package Trump signed into law last month provides generous tax cuts for corporations and the wealthiest Americans, and more modest reductions for middle- and low-income individuals and families. 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".

"I think it's a very good thing that he has done", said Miller.

Providing broadband access to rural regions has always been a challenge, as there is a high cost associated with building out the necessary infrastructure and a small, low-density population that would be served by the access.

He plans to thank the president for his agriculture appointments and tax reform that have been beneficial to farmers, then launch into farmers' anxieties over trade and immigration.

"Those towers are going to go up and you're going to have great, great broadband", Trump told attendees.

The presidential visit came as a White House report proposed ways to stimulate a segment of the national economy that has lagged behind others.

Trump said US businesses have moved from the highest tax rate in the developed world a year ago to one of the most competitive, from 35 percent to 21 percent.
