U.S. President Donald Trump is touting his policies for rural America, a segment of the national economy that has lagged behind growth in urban areas.
Connecting with rural Americans, President Donald Trump on Monday hailed his tax overhaul as a victory for family farmers and pitched his vision to expand access to broadband internet, a cornerstone of economic development in the nation's heartland.
Trump spent some time in his address on the new tax law he signed shortly before Christmas, telling producers about the $5.5 trillion in tax cut that will be offset by $4 trillion in other revenue changes.
Trump is also expected to highlight how the tax overhaul will help farmers and small businesses.
Trump said his administration has cut 22 regulations for every new regulation the government has proposed.
He added that all businesses, including farmers, would now be able to deduct 100% of the cost of new equipment in the year they make the investment.
Another candidate for governor, Bill Lee, said, "I am grateful that President Trump came to our state today to make a commitment to our rural areas".

"Our president, as you know, is very concerned about our trade deficit", Perdue commented in December at a National Press Club event in Washington, "and I'm prone to remind him whenever I'm in his presence that agriculture contributes to a trade surplus, and he needs to recognize that".
"From [day one], we've been working to deliver for America's farmers, just as they work every single day to deliver for us", the president said.
Later on in the speech, Trump also said it was a "privilege" for people to get to vote for him.
With regard to trade, Trump reassured Farm Bureau members that he's negotiating a better deal for farmers in the North American Free Trade Agreement.
The speech is the president's first major road trip address of 2018, and it is part of a broader effort to shore up voters and demographic groups that will be critical for Republicans to win over if they intend to keep their majorities in the House and Senate in the November midterm elections.
