Trump's plan to help his rural base? Just Obama's leftovers

Farmers gave Trump their votes. Now they're looking for a return

Farmers hope voices are heard during Trump's Nashville visit

Prior to the passage of the tax law, estates of individuals larger than $5.6 million were subject to the tax.

But they are not forgotten ANYMORE. 'Yes.' He'll come in-we're talking about a different subject, he'll say, 'What about the farmers?' That's good.

Not once in Nashville did Trump mention the Russian Federation investigation or rumors of turmoil within the White House, and he made only passing reference to immigration and his battles with the news media. All American businesses, including American farmers, will be able to deduct 100 percent of the cost of new equipment in the year you make the investment.

He said that means pressing for robust funding in the next five-year farm bill, with the current one expiring later this year.

Trump's mention of that repeal delivered him one of several standing ovations. "And I support a bill that includes crop insurance, unless you don't want me to", Trump said to applause.

"Those towers are going to go up and and you're going to have great, great broadband", Trump told the crowd.

Trump said farmers had suffered the "relentless intrusion from the army of regulators" for years, while highlighting his achievements in first year in office. That's why I'm truly proud to report that within our first 11 months, my administration has cancelled or delayed over 1,500 regulatory actions or assaults - more than any president in the history of the United States.

Modi also visited Pakistan in a surprise stopover on 25 December, 2015, on his way back from Russian Federation and Afghanistan. The composite dialogue process has been stalled since August 2014 when India called off foreign secretary-level talks.

It remains unclear whether the United States will pull out of the agreement altogether, but that is something President Trump has publicly threatened in the past. "American agriculture needs and deserves policies that support and build on this success - by opening markets overseas; by ensuring fair and science-based regulatory treatment for American products of all kinds; and by implementing strong enforcement policies that hold trading partners to their commitments".

"You embody the values of hard work, grit, self-reliance and sheer determination we need to - did you ever hear this expression? - make America great again", Trump told the crowd, returning to his campaign slogan.

The NAACP is urging people to wear white and hold anti-Trump signs on Monday for President Donald Trump's visit to Atlanta.

President Donald Trump signs two presidential orders to increase access to broadband internet to rural America, in Nashville, Tenn., on January 8, 2018.

According to the White House, "the first of these two orders instructs the department of interior to dedicate a portion of its assets for rural broadband installation. Not fair. I will sign two presidential orders to provide broader and faster, and better internet coverage".

The president spoke about how he plans to help rural America. The second will streamline the installation process by requiring agencies to use standardized forms and contracts for installing antennas on federal buildings, thus improving efficiency.

Trump's main focus was on promoting his success on tax cuts and regulatory reform as well as rolling out the recommendations from his administration's task force on rural prosperity.
