President Trump Takes Action to Expand Internet Access for Rural America

The Farm Bureau supported the Trans-Pacific Partnership (TPP), from which Trump withdrew soon after taking office a year ago.

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.

Referring to it as "the awful waters of the United States rule", the president said farmers and ranchers had come to him in tears after he signed an executive order to rescind a 2015 WOTUS rule, because he had "given them back their property".

President Donald Trump has signed an executive order to give rural areas access to high-speed broadband network, reports USA Today.

Trump touted the freshly signed tax bill as helping small businesses and farmers, mentioning the ability to deduct 20 percent of their business income.

The president also will highlight the tax-cut legislation approved last month by Congress, which he says will spare most family farms and small business owners from "the punishment of the deeply unfair estate tax". "Years of crushing taxes, crippling regulations and corrupt politics left our communities hurting, our economy stagnant and millions of hardworking Americans completely forgotten".

"I will take the first step to expand access to broadband internet in rural America so you can compete on a level playing field, which you were not able to do", Trump said.

He will address the American Farm Bureau Federation's Annual Convention at the Opryland Hotel.

On Monday, President Trump is set to become the first president of the quarter century for addressing the American Farm Bureau Federation's annual convention. He also said the nation's farmers should expect a timely farm bill passage that includes crop insurance support.

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.

Trump has ordered his administration to renegotiate the terms of the North American Free Trade Agreement, something that concerns many in the agriculture industry, which has done better than many other sectors under the trade deal. With the voice of rural America leading the way, and in close collaboration with local, state, and tribal leaders, 22 federal agencies, offices, and executive departments accepted the challenge to make rural America great again. "For America, there is no task too great, no goal too large, no dream beyond our reach".

SIGNED: Trump signed two Presidential Orders on the AFBF stage, both geared to provide broader, faster-and better-internet coverage. "That's very key so we want to send that message to him".

An issue continually championed by Chairman Roberts, President Trump made his first public statement in support of crop insurance.
