President Trump hailed Chairman Roberts for his focus on farmers and ranchers, saying Roberts "loves the farmers", and always asks, "what about the farmers?" in meetings.

"From [day one], we've been working to deliver for America's farmers, just as they work every single day to deliver for us", the president said.

Trump acknowledged controversy over the North American Free Trade Agreement and other trade agreements that account for roughly a quarter of US agriculture revenues.

Trump also talked up how the new tax law rolled back the estate tax by doubling the exemption threshold, meaning few farmers would have to pay those taxes.

The president is also generating applause with his calls for the American flag and the national anthem to be "respected".

The president left Nashville and went to Atlanta to watch the College Football Playoff Championship Game. American farmers send about $2.6 billion of corn to Mexico every year, a practice that could be jeopardized if Trump tears up NAFTA.

The White House released excerpts of the president's prepared remarks Monday.

Despite the boisterous welcome, the speech was also colored by Trump's push to renegotiate NAFTA and leave other global trade agreements, policy proposals that many American farmers have not supported due to their reliance on worldwide markets and low to no tariffs. He then touted how the $1.5 trillion tax overhaul helps working families, small businesses, and farmers. He will travel to Nashville, Tennessee, for the remarks.

Trump highlighted the tax cuts put through Congress in late 2017, stating: "Small and mid-sized businesses will receive massive tax cuts". "To level the playing field for all of our farmers and ranchers as well as our manufacturers we are reviewing all of our trade agreements", he said. Well, most of them.

"Oh, are you happy you voted for me", President Trump said as farmers applauded him.

At Berry Airfield, home of the 118th Wing of the Air National Guard, Congressman Scott DesJarlais was among those who welcomed President Trump to Tennessee as the President deplaned from Air Force One. The president broke no new ground on trade policy, including the ongoing negotiations on the North American Free Trade Agreement (NAFTA).

President Trump speaks at the American Farm Bureau Federation's Annual Convention at the Gaylord Opryland Resort and Convention Center, Mon., Jan. 8, 2018, in Nashville, Tenn. After he unveils proposals to assist rural economies, the president will attend the Alabama-Georgia game in Atlanta Monday night.

According to the Federal Communications Commission, 39 percent of rural Americans, or 23 million people, lack sufficient broadband access.
