President Trump hailed Chairman Roberts for his focus on farmers and ranchers, saying Roberts "loves the farmers", and always asks, "what about the farmers?" in meetings.

Noting that most of the benefits will be felt by working families, small businesses and family farmers, President Trump stated, "the American dream is roaring back to life and we've just signed into law the most significant tax cuts and reforms in American history". "We're fighting for our farmers, and we're fighting for our country and for our great American flag". Trump will claim that "more than 1 million workers have already received a tax cut bonus", a figure that is impossible to verify.

Among those changes is a doubling of the threshold to qualify for the estate tax to over $10 million.

"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.

"We are witnessing a new era of patriotism, prosperity, and pride-and at the forefront of this exciting new chapter is the great American farmer", he said.

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

In an address that took on the feel of one of his campaign rallies, President Donald Trump touted his record in his first year in office and told farmers gathered in Nashville that they're "lucky" he was willing to run for the White House and keep out Democrats.

You guys (media) can blame Bev all you want to, but the truth of the matter is, Bev is not the problem. Sarkisian's ties with Carroll and familiarity with a similar offense could make him a possible option.

In a rambling speech, President Trump told the audience at the conference that USA farmers are the "most incredible people".

After his speech in Tennessee, Trump heads to Atlanta in the neighboring state of Georgia to watch Monday night's national college football championship game between the universities of Georgia and Alabama.

"And I'm looking forward to working with Congress to pass the farm bill, on time, so that it delivers for all of you".

Trump acknowledged controversy over the North American Free Trade Agreement and other trade agreements that account for roughly a quarter of US agriculture revenues. "We plan to hold him to this commitment", Guebert said. He also said that farmers would be exempt of inheritance tax. With the trip to Nashville, he will unveil a report the White House says will include proposals to stimulate a segment of the national economy that has lagged behind others.

Trump signed an executive order following his speech on rural broadband, aimed at easing the process to put private broadband infrastructure on federal property.

Trump also spoke of adding better internet connectivity to rural regions, something he hopes will increase job attraction to such communities.
