Loving Farmers Let Him Know That They Also Love Free Trade

Loving Farmers Let Him Know That They Also Love Free Trade

Trump's opening remarks focused on praising the roles farmers have played in USA history, saying they founded the country and won its independence. He will be heading to Tennessee on same day to appeal to key demographic, farmers who helped him the most for being elected, as promoting his administration's tax law and previewing a recent White House strategy that helps rural America.

"Farmers and ranchers are the lifeblood of our rural communities and backbone of our country It's refreshing to see a President take such personal interest in the rural American constituency".

Not once in Nashville did Trump mention the Russian Federation investigation or rumors of turmoil within the White House, and he made only passing reference to immigration and his battles with the news media. He said the "sleeper in the bill" is the ability for American farmers to deduct 100% of the cost of new equipment in the year the investment is made.

Trump drew the first of his standing ovations when he pointed out that the tax bill doubled the estate tax exemption "so you can keep your farm in your family." Enjoying the applause Trump went on, "Obviously, you love your families; otherwise, you wouldn't be standing for that one".

"I will sign two presidential orders to provide broader and faster and better internet coverage", Trump said before signing the measures.

American Businesses are going from the highest tax rate in the developed world last year, to one of the most competitive this year - from 35 percent, all the way down to 21 percent.

On environmental regulations, President Trump said: "My administration is in the process of rolling back a rule that hit our farmers and ranchers very, very hard - the awful Waters of the United States rule". "And it was an assault", he said.




Trump said farmers had suffered the "relentless intrusion from the army of regulators" for years, while highlighting his achievements in first year in office.

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.

Implemented in 1994, NAFTA has removed barriers to agricultural trade between the United States, Canada, and Mexico.

"We know how important trade is to agriculture and even those comments can send a signal to our foreign buyers that we're not as reliable as they had thought we were", Nelson said.

"Farm country is God's country", Trump told the assembled audience. "President Trump's Department of Agriculture has announced it will invest $2.5 billion in electric infrastructure improvements in rural areas".

At the close of his speech, he signed an executive order to streamline the expansion of broadband telecommunications access in rural areas.

The orders followed input from farmers to Trump's rural America task force, who released a report on Monday that detailed their findings, including the need for better internet access.
