President Trump Addresses Record Farm Bureau Crowd

New Markets Mean Economic Security and Growth for Our Rural Communities Trump, in speech to farmers, aims to shore up rural support

Overall, Trump was warmly received; he then closed by declaring that "farm country is God's country". Trump's approval rating in that demographic dropped from 55 percent in the first weeks of his presidency to 47 percent in September, according to a Reuters-Ipsos poll.

However, it is unclear how much money the White House will allot for the initiative.

Trump heralded farmers as the bedrock of America. But as we approach his one-year anniversary in office, Trump's words on the campaign trail ring hollow as the promises he made to his base go unfulfilled.

Trump touched on issues of concern to American farmers, including trade, immigration and rural broadband access.

Trump also described the impact of the federal tax-reform legislation he signed late previous year, saying that most of its benefits would go to "working families, small businesses and the family farmer".

Trump told the crowd that family farms and small businesses will now be spared the "punishment" of "the deeply unfair estate tax". He also said that farmers would be exempt of inheritance tax.

The White House released excerpts of the president's prepared remarks Monday. "The family farmer." The estimated value of the tax cuts is actually $1.5 trillion for families and businesses because of cuts in deductions and the use of other steps to generate offsetting tax revenue.
