Trump, in speech to farmers, aims to shore up rural support

So on Monday the president traveled to Nashville, to offer up more promises to the "forgotten man" in Trump country - the biggest being a plan originally introduced by Barack Obama. "That is a tremendous thing", he said of the ability to deduct it all in one year as opposed to over many years.

While discussing the estate tax, Trump requested the crowd "get up" to give him a standing ovation. Many family farms are small businesses that will benefit from tax cuts, dependable domestic energy and infrastructure improvements, including rural Internet. "You embody the values of hard work, grit, self-reliance and sheer determination that we need to - have you heard this expression? - make America great again".

President Trump also said that within the first 11 months, his administration has canceled or delayed more than 1,500 planned regulatory actions, most notably the Waters of the United States rule.

"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", Trump said.

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.

He championed policy successes for agriculture including tax reform, a reduction of federal regulations and the rollback of the Waters of the USA rule.
