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.

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".
