Trump speaks to farmers, highlighting taxes and trade

Trump also supports rolling back the Environmental Protection Agency's Waters of the U.S. (WOTUS) rule, which affects farmers and ranchers.

Trump mentioned trade, which is something farmers have expressed concern about, especially the North American Free Trade Agreement (NAFTA).

While in the South on Monday, the president also plans to sign the Martin Luther King Jr.

President Donald Trump delivered a lengthy speech to the Farm Bureau Association conference in Nashville, Tenn.

"Yeah, clearly, trade will be on the mind of folks in the room on Monday, and I think you'll hear the President touch upon that", a Senior Administration Official told reporters at the White House last week. Trump has repeatedly attacked players who knelt during the anthem to draw attention to racial issues.

Not once in Nashville did Trump mention the Russian Federation investigation or rumors of turmoil within the White House, and he made only passing reference to immigration and his battles with the news media.

"Farm country is God's country", Trump said to another standing ovation.

Trump also said he looks to support an on-time farm bill.

"Small and mid-sized businesses will receive massive tax cuts". So a lot of the folks in this room, they'll be able to deduct 20 percent of their business income.

Trump said his administration has cut 22 regulations for every new regulation the government has proposed.

As a result, he seems to acquire some “lady luck” which puts the brakes on his ability to spoil the games of others. The success of Ocean’s 11 has led to the development of a new spin-off, Oceans 8 which is due to be released in 2018.

Rural Americans voted overwhelmingly for Trump in the 2016 presidential election.

"If you don't have something set in place to pass your farm on to those who you want it to go to, your family members, then you will end up having to sell pieces of your family farm that could've been in your family for 100 years or more", Miller said.

Trump says "most family farms will be spared" now from the "deeply unfair estate tax", adding that the GOP law will help farmers "keep your farms in the family". He remarked that it was a tough provision of the tax bill to get approved.

The WOTUS rule was developed by the Obama Administration's EPA and the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers.

"The title is so handsome, and that's where it stopped", said Trump, later adding, "We ditched the rule".

Trump praised the hard work of farmers and those in the agriculture industry. "It's under negotiation as we speak", Trump said.

Sen. Pat Roberts, R-Kan., chairman of the Senate Committee on Agriculture, Nutrition and Forestry, was among the lawmakers who accompanied Trump on his flight to Nashville.

Farm groups and their allies in Congress are giving top priority to a strong crop insurance program in a farm bill that is expected to make few major changes in federal policy.

Applause and loud cheers from the audience followed that remark.

While many economic sectors have recovered from the economic downturn, the nation's rural areas have lagged in nearly every indicator, said Ray Starling, special assistant to the president for Agriculture, Agricultural Trade and Food Assistance on the National Economic Council.
