The Farm Bureau supported the Trans-Pacific Partnership (TPP), from which Trump withdrew soon after taking office past year.

President Donald Trump promoted his administration's accomplishments for rural America in a speech before the American Farm Bureau Federation Convention in Nashville, Tennesse on Monday.

"Farmers are the president's people", Agriculture Secretary Sonny Perdue told NPR's Morning Edition on Monday.

Trump said farmers had suffered the "relentless intrusion from the army of regulators" for years, while highlighting his achievements in first year in office. He said the "sleeper in the bill" is the ability for American farmers to deduct 100% of the cost of new equipment in the year the investment is made.

"Any time you talk to a group of farmers and you can proudly declare to them that for every regulation that's been put into place, they've removed 22, that's a very positive sign", Johansson said, adding that he hopes the administration will continue its work to ease regulations "that overpower our own decision-making on the farm".

"Those towers are going to go up and you're going to have great, great broadband", Trump told the annual convention of the American Farm Bureau Federation.
