President Trump Takes Action to Expand Internet Access for Rural America

President Trump Takes Action to Expand Internet Access for Rural America

He was the first president in a quarter-century to address the federation's convention.

Nelson also said he would like to hear the president talk about creating a good trade environment for agriculture and noted that the White House has employed harsh rhetoric on trade.

Trump also supports rolling back the Environmental Protection Agency's Waters of the U.S. (WOTUS) rule, which affects farmers and ranchers.

At the conclusion of his speech, the president signed two executive orders stemming from the task force report, aimed at enhancing broadband Internet coverage in rural areas.

Richard T. Cullen, the executive director of Connect Americans Now-an advocacy group formed by Microsoft that intends to help expand broadband internet access-offered support for President Trump's order.

Trump touted the freshly signed tax bill as helping small businesses and farmers, mentioning the ability to deduct 20 percent of their business income.

Trump also said family farms will be exempt from the estate tax, which he said would allow families to maintain ownership of their farms.

Trump, who came onstage to the strains of Lee Greenwood's "God Bless the United States of America", referenced familiar themes of patriotism and respect for the American flag and the American anthem.

Spark divides opinion with $850000 gene therapy
Last month, the FDA approved a gene therapy called Luxturna, which can treat a rare eye disease that causes blindness. And the company is also working on covering patients' out of pocket costs as part of the overall price.

The White House provided Channel 3 with excerpts before his speech today.

Trump has ordered his administration to renegotiate the terms of the North American Free Trade Agreement, something that concerns many in the agriculture industry, which has done better than many other sectors under the trade deal.

"We have been working every day to deliver for America's farmers, just as they work every single day to deliver for us", President Trump said.

On Monday, the president spoke at the 2018 Farm Bureau convention in Nashville, Tennessee.

Among its recommendations, Trump said, "we are proposing infrastructure reforms to ensure that our rural communities have access to the best roadways, railways and waterways anywhere in the world". MTA officials say they will notify riders about changes through their social media accounts, email list and website.

Fleischmann said the Tennessee congressional delegation rode with the president on Air Force One for the trip from Washington D.C.to Nashville. "That's very key so we want to send that message to him". That's because he says most of the players for both Georgia and Alabama are black, and they could not have played had the South remained segregated. He said he'll support a bill that includes crop insurance. The president took the field during the national anthem, to jeers and cheers.

Here is the text of the Executive Order on Rural Broadband and the Memorandum on Rural Broadband to the Secretary of the Interior.

He is expected to unveil proposals to assist the economies of rural communities during his speech.
