President Donald Trump touted the recent passage of a new North American trade deal as he spoke to thousands of farmers and ranchers Sunday at the American Farm Bureau Federation’s convention in Austin. Among those in attendance was the President of the Oklahoma Farm Bureau, Rodd Moesel. Moesel has led the Oklahoma Farm Bureau delegation to Austin for the 2020 Convention and Business meeting of the general farm organization- and he told Radio Oklahoma Ag Network Farm Director Ron Hays that the President hit almost all of the topics that the farm group is most interested in.Click here to see more...
USMCA is one of those topics- as well as the Phase One Trade Deal with China and the partial trade agreement with Japan- and they were all prominent in the Trump speech.
But Moesel says his comments about private property rights and ending the Obama era WOTUS hit responsive cords with the audience as well.
Moesel also believes that Trump's comment that he trusted farmers more than Washington career bureaucrats in knowing how to best take care of their land was very well received by the farmers and ranchers who waited hours for the chance to see the President for the third time in as many years at the National Convention of the organization.
