President Trump Signs Executive Order Promoting Agriculture and Rural Prosperity in America

2 minute read

Yesterday, President Donald J. Trump welcomed farmers to the Roosevelt Room of the White House, where he participated in a roundtable discussion and signed the Executive Order Promoting Agriculture and Rural Prosperity in America.

America’s noble farming tradition stretches back to its earliest days.  Farmers led the way across the Great Plains, and put down roots from coast to coast.  Today, America’s farmers feed not only our nation, but millions of people around the world.

Our farmers deserve a government that serves their interest and empowers them to do the hard work that they love to do so much.  With this order, the President directed Secretary Perdue to work with other members of the Cabinet to identify and eliminate unnecessary regulations that hurt our Nation’s farmers and rural communities.
