Farm Bureau members are excited about President Trump's address at the American Farm Bureau Federation's Annual Convention in Nashville, Tennessee.
Trump spoke about different issues affecting farmers across the country, but his main goal is to provide more opportunities to rural areas by addressing the lack of internet.
President Donald Trump on Monday told farmers gathered in Tennessee that he supports crop insurance, signaling a possible shift from his proposals a year ago to shrink a program that many farmers rely on for funding their operations.
"There is a word called "partners" in there", Iowa farmer John Hall said.
Today President Trump signed an executive order to help expand rural broadband across the United States.
"I'm looking forward to working with Congress to pass the farm bill on time so that it delivers for all of you and I support a bill that includes crop insurance", Trump said after noting Senate Agriculture Committee Chairman Pat Roberts was in attendance.
"We are streamlining regulations that have blocked cutting edge biotechnology, setting free our farmers to innovate, thrive and to grow", Trump said.
"(To) not have Trump stomping around in our stuff, we can make some real improvements in agriculture", Hall said. South Dakota Farm Bureau President Scott VanderWal says it's significant the Commander in Chief will address farmers.
"For years, many of you have endured burdensome fines, inspections, paperwork, and relentless intrusion from an army of regulators at the EPA, the FDA, and countless other federal agencies", Mr. Trump will say.
