President Trump Takes Action to Expand Internet Access for Rural America

Farm Bureau estimates 7400 watched the president's speech in person or on the Livestream, and thousands more have watched it since. But he did not talk about how to address the ongoing chronic labor shortage facing many farmers in America, many of whom rely on migrant workers to do delicate or labor-intensive farm work throughout the country.

After the speech, flanked by Ag Secretary Sonny Perdue, several Tennessee lawmakers and Senate Agriculture Chairman Pat Roberts, Trump signed two executive orders meant to help expand rural broadband.

The estimated value of the tax cuts over the next 10 years is actually $1.5 trillion for families and businesses - not $5.5 trillion. Many say they want to thank President Trump for accomplishing tax reform. He said that "in every decision we make, we are honoring America's proud farming legacy".

Trump touted how the new tax law now allows farmers to immediately write off 100 percent of new equipment.

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

California Farm Bureau Federation President Jamie Johansson, who heard the speech, said he found encouragement in President Trump's pledge to continue reducing burdensome regulations.

Trump on Monday is set to become the first president in a quarter century to address the annual convention of the American Farm Bureau Federation. There had been reports that Trump was wavering about supporting crop insurance in a new farm bill, a concept Roberts supports.

Trump also vowed to push ahead on job-creating infrastructure projects, and promised to slash federal regulations that he argued hampered farmers.

The president hit all the high notes to please the crowd that helped elect him to the White House, from lower taxes to increasing rural broadband access, but only briefly mentioned trade and NAFTA, which farmers are most concerned about when it comes to administration policy.

The president had cut crop insurance in his budget last spring but later rescinded the cut. "Today, this task force is releasing its final report and I am taking action right at that attractive table".

"Since his inauguration, President Trump has made agriculture and rural America a high priority". The other calls on the Department of the Interior to install broadband towers on property it manages, a potentially vast portfolio of national parks, wildlife refuges and Indian territories. "For America, there is no task too great, no goal too large, no dream beyond our reach". "We ditched the rule", he said, to the members of the organization which led the charge to "Ditch the Rule" when it came out in 2015.
