Trump inflates the size of his tax cuts

"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".

Trump touted how the new tax law now allows farmers to immediately write off 100 percent of new equipment.

"I will sign two presidential orders to provide broader and faster and better internet coverage", Trump said before signing the measures. "Corrupt politics left our economies hurting, stagnant and millions of hard-working employees completely forgotten". He promised them better times ahead, saying they would no longer be forgotten by Washington.

U.S. Senator Pat Roberts of Kansas is leading the effort to get a new Farm Bill passed, and he received support this week from President Donald Trump.

Phillip also tweeted that Trump plans to attend next year. "That is a tremendous thing", he said of the ability to deduct it all in one year as opposed to over many years.

The estate tax comments were met with huge applause and a standing ovation from the crowd.

President Trump says tax reform has ended the "death tax" that unfairly punishes American farmers. Those towers are going to go up, and you're going to have great, great broadband.

The president also took credit for working to roll back the Obama administration's interpretation of the Clean Water Act, which had greatly expanded the list of bodies of water subject to federal regulation.

This was Trump's second trip to Nashville since taking office.

"We are also putting an end to the regulatory assault of paperwork and inspections".

He championed policy successes for agriculture including tax reform, a reduction of federal regulations and the rollback of the Waters of the USA rule. "That's very key so we want to send that message to him".

Trump said America's farmers show "the hard work, grit and self-reliance we need to. make America great again". "The other choice wasn't going to work out too well for the farmers, I hate to tell you-or the miners or anybody else".

He referred to a new report from a task force that heard from farmers on broadband access and its importance to farming communities. A former Indiana Farm Bureau president and current vice president both remember that last visit well.

The executive order follows the release of recommendations from a task force established previous year that seeks to make several improvements to the country's rural areas.

Even as his administration has delivered on several of its campaign promises, including tax reform and the suspension of some environmental rules, farmers have grown wary of the president's positions on trade, immigration and crop insurance.
