The President Speaks At The American Farm Bureau About Rural America
In a rural area like I live, this content will prove very significant:
On January 13, 1992, President George H. W. Bush spoke at the American Farm Bureau Federation’s annual convention in Kansas City, Missouri. Fresh off a 12-day trip to Asia, he talked about trade, security, and prosperity for rural America in the new global economy.
For more than a quarter-century, no American president returned to speak at the convention, which is a staple of the U.S. agriculture industry. Yesterday, President Donald J. Trump broke that trend.
Here is what he told the convention:
“We have been working every day to deliver for America’s farmers just as they work every day to deliver for us.”
Tax reform means that “American farmers will be able to deduct 100% of the cost of new equipment in the year you make the investment.”
“We are reviewing all of our trade agreements to make sure they are fair and reciprocal.”
The President signed two orders moments after he spoke, both of which act on the recommendation of his Agriculture and Rural Prosperity Task Force to expand access to broadband internet in rural America.
The President went on to say he will protect the internet, expanding it to rural America.
