  • Today President Trump Signed an Executive Order to Expand Rural Broadband

President of the United States, Donald Trump, announced major tax and regulation cuts, along with the promise of improved rural broadband, in an address at the American Farm Bureau in Nashville, Tennessee yesterday.

Trump kept perhaps a larger elephant in the room - agricultural trade with China and Mexico, which the farmers heavily support - lower in the speech, assuring the farmers they would "get a better deal" from the North American Free Trade Agreement.

"The tax reform bill that just passed, we feel that could have a big impact on farmers", Aiken said.

Trump says "most family farms will be spared" now from the "deeply unfair estate tax", adding that the GOP law will help farmers "keep your farms in the family".

"As we put more money into the pockets of all Americans, including farmers and ranchers, we are also putting an end to the regulatory assault on your way of life".

President Trump signed an executive order Monday afternoon expanding broadband internet to rural America.

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

The US President Donald Trump is trying on boosting the plans of his administration to promote economic development in rural communities, seating at the national college football championship game. "We have cut 22 regulations for every new regulation".

"While we really support any kind of efforts to actually help us be able to achieve the long-promised dream of high-speed Internet broadband access, it won't do any good if we don't have anybody left out in the country to produce food and fiber", Hansen said. According to the Federal Communications Commission's 2016 Broadband Progress Report, 39 percent of rural Americans - roughly 23 million people - lack access to high-speed internet.

Trump encouraged his audience to follow him on Twitter for more information about the orders.

Lauding other regulatory repeals, Trump said, "We're restoring the rule of law and protecting our cherished Second Amendment", reinforcing his point with a rifle-shooting gesture.

AFBF President Zippy Duvall said Trump's visit marked a watershed in D.C. politics. After mentioning that Senate Agriculture chairman Pat Roberts, who is a stalwart proponent of crop insurance, was on hand, the president said, "I'm looking forward to working with Congress to pass a farm bill on time so that it delivers for all of you and I support a bill that includes crop insurance - unless you don't want me to".

Mackey was pleased Trump at least brought the matter up but disappointed not to hear "a convincing note" that the White House has farmers' backs.
