Trump Delivers Promise To Farmers For New Farm Bill

President Trump is making a stop in Nashville Monday to address thousands of farmers at the American Farm Bureau Federation convention

The Farm Bureau supported the Trans-Pacific Partnership (TPP), from which Trump withdrew soon after taking office previous year. "Farm country is God's country", he said during the speech.

Bob Corker (R- Tenn.), Trump signed a pair of executive orders aimed at encouraging private companies to expand broadband access to rural communities by expediting the permitting process.

The $1.5 trillion package that 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.

Trump stressed that most farmers would be exempt from inheritance tax: "From now on, most family farms and small-business owners will be spared ... the deeply unfair estate tax - known as the death tax - so you can keep your farms in the family". He noted that under the GOP-backed tax plan, farmers can write off 100 percent of the cost of newly purchased farming equipment, instead of spreading out the deduction over several years.

Trump's opening remarks focused on praising the roles farmers have played in USA history, saying they founded the country and won its independence.

There are a number of ag leaders and lawmakers at the annual American Farm Bureau Federation conference this week in Nashville.

President Donald Trump concluded the 99th American Farm Bureau Federation Annual Convention Tuesday, praising farmers and ranchers as the future of the nation. There had been reports that Trump was wavering about supporting crop insurance in a new farm bill, a concept Roberts supports.

After his speech in Tennessee, Trump heads to Atlanta in the neighboring state of Georgia to watch Monday night's national college football championship game between the universities of Georgia and Alabama.

President Trump also promised to pass the next Farm Bill before legislation funding support schemes for U.S. farmers expires on 1 October.

With regard to trade, Trump reassured Farm Bureau members that he's negotiating a better deal for farmers in the North American Free Trade Agreement. "And I support a bill that includes crop insurance, unless you don't want me to", Trump said to applause.

The first of these two orders instructs the Department of Interior to dedicate a portion of its assets for rural broadband installation.

Trump also said he looks to support an on-time farm bill. "We plan to hold him to this commitment", Guebert said. "Today, this task force is releasing its final report and I am taking action right at that handsome table".

Trump also spoke of adding better internet connectivity to rural regions, something he hopes will increase job attraction to such communities. Together, we truly are making America great again.

Monday will be Trump's second visit to Nashville since he took office a year ago.
