"We are removing harmful restrictions on forestry so you can log more timber, plant more trees and export more renewable resources to other countries", the president will say to the convention attendees. "For years, many of you have endured burdensome fines, inspections, needless paperwork and relentless intrusion from an army of regulators from the EPA, FDA and countless other federal agencies".

"Deployment in rural America, both wired and wireless, will only happen if we eliminate monopoly, roadblocks on poles, buildings and infrastructure at the state and local level that have prevented new network builders from delivering faster, more affordable high-speed internet to American consumers", Pickering said.

At the American Farm Bureau Federation's annual conference in Nashville, Tennessee, on Monday, under the theme "Rebuilding Rural America", Trump told the audience "you are forgotten no more".

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". "Oh are you happy you voted for me", the president said as he talked about "ditching the rule" - the Waters of the USA or WOTUS, which Farm Bureau stridently opposed.

Trump acknowledged controversy over the North American Free Trade Agreement and other trade agreements that account for roughly a quarter of USA agriculture revenues. "We love our flag and we love our anthem and we want to keep it that way", he said.

The NAACP is urging people to wear white and hold anti-Trump signs on Monday for President Donald Trump's visit to Atlanta. "It's not going to help you much, but will help them a lot", garnering additional applause.
