"I will sign two presidential orders to provide broader and faster and better internet coverage", Trump said before signing the measures.

Jennifer Jacobs, a White House reporter for Bloomberg News, reported that the audience really loved Trump.

"You embody the values of hard work, grit, self reliance and sheer determination to - did you ever hear this expression? - make America great again", said Trump, with reference to his popular campaign slogan.

Some versions of the tax cut and reform bill eliminated the estate tax completely, but the final bill did not. "We have over a million workers that have already received a tax cut bonus, something that nobody even thought when we made the bill". "In every decision we make, we are honoring America's proud farming legacy".

Glen and Melinda Groth from Winona County finished in the Top 10 in the Achievement Award national competition at the American Farm Bureau Federation's 99th annual meeting.

"President Trump earlier this year commented on his "$1 trillion infrastructure proposal", but the thing here is that while he signed this executive order, it doesn't appear to offer any funding benefits to help install broadband in rural communities.

NAFTA is a key concern for farmers, who need access to foreign markets and who have been anxious about the president's threats to withdraw from NAFTA if he's not happy with the renegotiation of the agreement. "It's under negotiation as we speak".

This is President Trump's second trip to Nashville since taking office. "We have been working every day to deliver for America's farmers just as they work every single day to deliver for us". There had been reports that Trump was wavering about supporting crop insurance in a new farm bill, a concept Roberts supports. As the crowd cheered, Trump added, "I guess you like it, right? We're going to be spending the necessary funds and get you taken care of-and these projects are going to be built under budget and ahead of schedule". White House officials have called the speech Trump's "first major policy address" since Congress passed tax reform December 20.

Fleischmann said Trump was very kind and wanted the people of Tennessee to know he truly cares about their well-being. For estates worth more than the exemption, the federal tax rate remains 40 percent.

Later, he presented a regulatory scenario under the Democrats.

According to him, the planned tax cuts amount to 5.5 trillion United States dollars and will bring benefits to working families, particularly farmers, small and medium-sized businesses.
