Trump Offers Praise, Commitment to Farmers

Trump Offers Praise, Commitment to Farmers”

"Farm country is God's country", Trump said to another standing ovation.

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

Trump touted how the new tax law now allows farmers to immediately write off 100 percent of new equipment. The President announced significant changes to the estate tax, known as the death tax, so Americans can "keep your farms in the family", which was met by one of several standing ovations.

"Our president, as you know, is very concerned about our trade deficit", Perdue commented in December at a National Press Club event in Washington, "and I'm prone to remind him whenever I'm in his presence that agriculture contributes to a trade surplus, and he needs to recognize that".

"Those towers are going to go up and you are going to have great, great broadband", the president told convention goers.

The president pointed specifically to the administration's rolling back the "terrible" Waters of the United States (WOTUS) rule, which also was a goal of most production agriculture organizations. Republicans, after passing tax reform at the end of 2017, are eager hold on to their majorities in the House and the Senate, and Trump's speech will be a preview of how Republicans will look to sell tax reform during an election year.

Trump highlighted his Administration's actions to cancel or delay over 1,500 "planned regulatory actions or assaults" across the government, adding it is more than any president in the history of the United States. He focused on eliminating unnecessary regulations.

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

Trump is the first U.S. president to address the farmer's group in a quarter-century.

"We were Indiana's representative in the Indiana Young Farmer Achievement Award that year", he told HAT. The president described the task force as part of the administration's efforts to "bring hope and prosperity to struggling rural communities".

He referred to a new report from a task force that heard from farmers on broadband access and its importance to farming communities. The order will make it easier for companies to install high-speed broadband networks in rural areas and provide services to customers. The second will streamline the installation process by requiring agencies to use standardized forms and contracts for installing antennas on federal buildings, thus improving efficiency. "If the Democrats ever had the chance, the first thing they would do is get rid of it and raise up your taxes", Trump said. The fat "I Support NAFTA" pins spotted on scores of lapels made that clear.
