Donald Trump Celebrates Farmers at the White House, Defends Trade Actions

"And that's one market that has been very good to corn farmers in the state of IL, and we'd like to see that continued", Guebert said.

Many school nutrition standards now targeted by Republicans were results of former First Lady Michelle Obama's campaign against childhood obesity, according to The Hill. "Having endured months of the current farm crisis and drastic policy changes in Washington without a secretary of agriculture, family farmers and ranchers are relieved that Sonny Perdue has finally been confirmed to lead the USDA". He has owned several agricultural businesses, but isn't related to or affiliated with the food company Perdue or the poultry producer Perdue Farms.

The meeting set the stage for the President's Executive Order, also signed Tuesday, that establishes an interagency task force to examine a wide range of issues affecting the quality of life in rural America.

As agriculture secretary, he'll be in charge of around 100,000 employees and the nation's food and farm programs, including agricultural subsidies, conservation efforts, rural development programs, food safety and nutrition programs such as food stamps and federally-subsidized school meals. "The Agriculture Committee received many letters in support of his nomination, including support from six former USA secretaries of agriculture representing both Republican and Democratic presidents and another from almost 700 organizations across the agriculture and food value chain".

"As an American facing a $20 trillion debt, with 14 grandchildren, I don't think it's my moral responsibility to kick that debt to those 14 grandchildren", he says.

The president told reporters that he was not anxious about a trade war with Canada.

Freedom Day - stepping stone to democracy
In his address, Zuma acknowledged that South Africa has achieved political freedom but economic freedom still remains largely elusive.

"My job as USDA Secretary is to go around the world and make sure we're able to market and sell the products we grow...and make sure our producers continue to prosper and thrive", Perdue says. "The action they took we know was discriminatory to our American producers and the America. the president didn't take it lying down".
