Trump touts tax overhaul as boon for farmers

Farmers gave Trump their votes. Now they're looking for a return

Farmers hope voices are heard during Trump's Nashville visit

With an eye toward the mid-term congressional elections in November, Trump warned that Democrats would seek to reverse the newly enacted tax cuts and the reduction in regulations that his administration was carrying out.

In his address to the crowd of almost 5,000 AFBF members, President Trump noted the achievements of his administration in addressing numerous concerns faced by American farmers.

President Trump also said that within the first 11 months, his administration has canceled or delayed more than 1,500 planned regulatory actions, most notably the Waters of the United States rule.

The hype surrounding Trump's executive order obfuscates the countless other Trump FCC policies that are making the broadband industry undeniably worse for American consumers, especially those in less affluent and more rural areas. Trump told the crowd that family farms and small businesses will now be spared the "punishment" of "the deeply unfair estate tax".

Trump, surrounded by a supportive audience of farmers and agriculture executives, cast himself as the first president in decades to focus on rural America and argued that the new tax law allows more farmers to keep money in their pockets and reinvest in their companies.

The president received perhaps his most enthusiastic reception when he described the administration's work to reduce the effect of government regulation on farms and ranches.

According to reports, the Interior Secretary Ryan Zinke will be required to develop a plan to support rural broadband deployment.

Trump is set to address the American Farm Bureau Federation at their 2018 convention.

Mr. Boyd said, "I am proud that President Trump chose Tennessee to outline his vision for ending the opioid epidemic and expanding rural access to broadband".

"On NAFTA, I am working very hard to get a better deal for our country and for our farmers, for our manufacturers".

"That is something that I think will be the sleeper of the bill", Trump said.

News 4 spoke to a Robertson County farmer, who shared what he hopes to hear from Trump.

Trump concluded, "I'm looking forward to working with Congress to pass the Farm Bill on time, so that it delivers for all of you, and I support a bill that includes crop insurance".

After the visit to Nashville on Monday, Trump is reportedly going to attend the college football national championship game in Atlanta. "And we can not let anything happen to that", Trump said.

"We're fighting for our farmers..."

"Farm country is God's country", Trump said to a standing ovation as he closed out his remarks to the farming convention crowd. 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.
