Trump's Nashville Visit: What You Need To Know

President Trump to address farmers in Nashville Monday

"Under this new law, the typical family of four earning $75,000 will see an income tax cut of more than $2,000 each, slashing their tax bill in half each year", he said.

Farmers for Free Trade, the group behind the lapel pins, issued a statement after the president's speech: "Taking withdrawal off the table is the only way to provide American farmers and ranchers with the certainty they deserve".

Trump said farmers had suffered the "relentless intrusion from the army of regulators" for years, while highlighting his achievements in first year in office.

They loved President Donald Trump at the American Farm Bureau Federation convention in Nashville, cheering during his speech and praising his policies.

Trump said America's farmers show "the hard work, grit and self-reliance we need to. make America great again". "And we're fighting for our country", he said.

"The administration recognizes that those challenges exist, and is committed to not overlooking them or ignoring them", said Ray Starling, a special assistant to Mr. Trump who deals with farm affairs.

The objective of the visit was to promote his administration's five-point plan to turnaround struggling rural communities.

Roberts was with the president at a farm convention this week in Tennessee as Trump promised there would be progress on a Farm Bill.

President Donald Trump unveiled an agriculture initiative to bring broadband Internet to rural areas of the United States during a speech Monday in Tennessee.

"Farm country is God's country".

"Our president, as you know, is very concerned about our trade deficit", Perdue commented in December at a National Press Club event in Washington, "and I'm prone to remind him whenever I'm in his presence that agriculture contributes to a trade surplus, and he needs to recognize that".

The titles of the two executive actions - which Trump read aloud before signing - are "Streamlining and Expediting Requests to Locate Broadband Facilities in Rural America" (the executive order) and "Supporting Broadband Tower Facilities in Rural America and Federal Properties Managed by the Department of the Interior" (the memorandum).

The Rev. Jesse Jackson says the halftime song at the College Football Championship game should be "We Shall Overcome".

I'm looking forward to working with Congress to pass the Farm Bill, on time, so that it delivers for all of you.

"The focus on broadband deployment in the Interagency Task Force on Agriculture and Rural Prosperity reflects a national imperative to ensure every American can be connected, no matter where we live", Spalter said. Agriculture Secretary Sonny Perdue is credited with dissuading Trump from abandoning NAFTA last April by showing the president a heavily rural map of states that would be hurt by US withdrawal.
