Donald Trump Farm Bureau Speech January 2018

Donald Trump to Farmers Who Voted For Him: "You Are So Lucky I Gave You That Privilege"

On Jan. 8, President Donald Trump gave a speech at the American Farm Bureau Federation convention in Tennessee and spoke to the audience about the tax bill Congress passed late last year, and farmers being the future of the United States. But what really caught our attention were the comments he made about his election into office. "Oh, are you happy you voted for me. You are so lucky that I gave you that privilege," Trump said. "The other choice wasn't going to work out too well for the farmers, I hate to — or the miners, or anybody else." Of course, the other choice he is referencing is Hillary Clinton.

During the rest of his speech, he spoke about how beneficial the tax cuts passed will be for farmers. "We have just signed into law the most significant tax cuts and reforms in American history — it's a total of $5.5 trillion in tax cuts," he said before adding that "working families, small businesses, and — who? — the family farmers" would be the ones to benefit the most. The tax bill is actually set to reduce cuts by $1.5 trillion over the next 10 years and not $5.5 trillion like Trump said, according to The New York Times. The part about it benefiting family farmers the most is also false because, in actuality, it will most benefit the richest Americans, according to Tax Policy Center. Watch his speech above, and just take it all in.
