President Trump spoke to farmers and ranchers attending the American Farm Bureau Federation (AFBF) convention on Monday in Nashville, Tennessee. You can watch his full speech below.
According to a White House adviser, Trump’s speech will express support for a dramatic expansion of high-speed internet service in rural America. The president also is expected to call for greater use of federal forests and fewer hurdles to agricultural biotechnology, two areas that may be lightning rods for controversy.
AFBF President Zippy Duvall spoke to the 7,000 convention attendees on Sunday, expressing the importance of ag trade. “We sell about half of what we produce to foreign markets around the world. If we lose those markets, where is that agricultural production going to go? Ag trade is an American success story,” said Duvall.
