Trump Expands Broadband Internet to Rural America
Farmers will now be able to access Trump's Twitter faster than ever before.
President Trump signed an executive order Monday afternoon expanding broadband internet to rural America.
On November 6, 2017, the Department of Agriculture announced it will invest more than $200 million to help bring broadband to rural communities
President Trump’s Department of Agriculture has announced it will invest $2.5 billion in electric infrastructure improvements in rural areas. In fiscal year 2017, the Department of Agriculture provided more than $1 billion to help improve access to health care for rural Americans. This $1 billion helped 2.5 million Americans living in rural communities in 41 States.-White House
President Trump signed the order and spoke at the American Farm Bureau, being the first president to do so in 25 years.
Trump highlighted his record shattering tax cuts at the event:
We have just signed into law the most significant tax cuts and reforms in American History – a total of $5.5 trillion dollars in tax cuts, with most of those benefits going to working families, small businesses and family farmers...
Businesses across America have already started to raise wages, and more than 100 companies have already given bonuses to hundreds of thousands of workers as a result of these massive tax cuts. More than 1 million workers have already received a tax cut bonus.
All American businesses, including American Farmers, will be able to deduct 100% of the cost of new equipment in the year you make the investment
And from now on, most family farms and small business owners will be spared the punishment of the deeply unfair estate tax, known as the death tax—so you can keep your farms in the family.-Donald President Trump
