US President Donald Trump is Encouraging Economic Development in Rural Communities

About 7,000 farmers are attending the event which is held at Gaylord Opryland Resort & Convention Center January 5 – 10

Americans' estates larger than $5.6 million had previously been subject to the tax. He promised them better times ahead, saying they would no longer be forgotten by Washington.

We are fighting for our farmers, for our country, and for our GREAT AMERICAN FLAG.

He addressed the recent Republican victory on the tax reform bill and talked about issues that are of immediate concern to AFBF members and the USA agriculture community.

He said that means pressing for robust funding in the next five-year farm bill, with the current one expiring later this year.

Trump also said family farms will be exempt from the estate tax, which he said would allow families to maintain ownership of their farms.

AFBF President Zippy Duvall said Trump's visit marked a watershed in D.C. politics. "You are forgotten no more", he told farmers.

In flaunting his work on reducing federal regulations, President Trump told Farm Bureau members that the administration is working to end the regulatory "assault" on farmers' way of life. "For years, many of you have endured burdensome fines, inspections, paperwork and relentless intrusion from an army of regulators at the EPA, the FDA and countless other federal agencies". "If more business competition is the goal, then it makes sense that competition policy that helps new broadband providers is where we start". "We have put a number of proposals on the table to modernize NAFTA, and critically for agriculture, to address key sectors left out of the original agreement - dairy and poultry tariffs in Canada. We plan to hold him to this commitment", Guebert said.

Trump also described the impact of the federal tax-reform legislation he signed late past year, saying that most of its benefits would go to "working families, small businesses and the family farmer".

"Farm country is God's country", Trump said to a standing ovation as he closed out his remarks to the farming convention crowd.

"We are pleased that the president will continue to address other issues that concern farmers, including the farm bill, the rollback of WOTUS, extending broadband access to rural areas and securing strong trade agreements for our nation's farmers", Kron said.

President Donald Trump will lay out an economic road map for rural America today that includes an emphasis on innovation and technology, including expansion of high-speed Internet access.

The issue is one Agriculture Secretary Sonny Perdue said he has discussed with the president.

A president who was carried to victory on the strength of a rural America vote made a return home of sorts with a rallying speech to some of those voters.

Nebraska Farmers Union President John Hansen said he hopes the president also emphasizes the dire situation now facing farmers and ranchers.
