On Monday, Trump told the audience of farmers that they were “so lucky” because he gave them the “privilege” of voting for him. This happened during the American Farm Bureau Federation’s annual convention in Nashville, Tennesee.

Trump stated, “We are streamlining regulations that have blocked cutting-edge biotechnology, setting free our farmers to innovate, thrive and to grow.”

As the crowd cheered, Trump stated, “Oh, are you happy you voted for me. You are so lucky that I gave you that privilege.”

He added, “The other choice wasn’t going to work out well for the farmers, I hate to tell you- or the miners, or anybody else.” This was in reference to his Democratic opponent, Hillary Clinton.

Trump attended this convention to talk about the new GOP tax bill and his new plan that will help rural areas that are struggling.

Jennifer Jacobs, White House reporter for Bloomberg News reported that the crowd loved Trump.

Also, according to Sonny Perdue, the Agriculture Secretary, on his appearance on NPR’s Morning Edition, “Farmers are the president’s people.  These are the people that elected the president. The president knows that. These are the people the president cares about. And he wants them to enjoy the American Dream just like all the people in the cities.”

Even though Trump says he’ll help farmers, it was revealed that 2017’s net farm income was about half of what it was in 2013.
