On Wednesday, June 21, President Donald J. Trump visited Kirkwood Community College in Cedar Rapids to address his efforts to foster agriculture innovation.
The audience consisted of over 200 dignitaries, farmers and industrial businessmen within Iowa and other states. He spoke about the value of farming to the nation’s economy and ensured his administration would continuously embrace the challenge to rebuild rural America.
President Trump stated, “We have to make sure American farmers and their families, wherever they may be, wherever they may go, have the infrastructure projects that they need to compete and grow. And I mean grow against world competition, because that’s who you’re up against now.”
For the past two weeks, the White House administration has been working extensively on vocational education, infrastructure and technology. The president declared he would push for increased rural internet access in his proposed infrastructure plan.
With sincerity and conviction, President Trump stated, “American farmers and ranchers are the best — absolute best at what they do. And they can compete anywhere if they are given a level playing field.”
