During the 91st FFA Convention in Indianapolis, Illinois, President Donald Trump spoke to FFA members for more than an hour. He is the first president in 27 years to address the FFA convention in person — the last president to do so was George H. W. Bush in 1991.
He discussed trade issues, foreign policies, inheritance taxes and excessive government regulation. President Trump told farmers that despite the rough road they’ve had in the last year, new trade developments are paving the road for a better future.
“No one is better prepared to live the American Dream than the young Americans here today,” President Trump said. “Your time with the FFA in the field, in the lab, in the classroom has not only prepared you for a stellar career in something that you love, it’s taught you essential truths about life and about the world in which we live.”
