President Donald Trump demanded that farmers give him standing ovation during a speech in Nashville, Tennessee (video below).
During a speech to the American Farm Bureau Federation, Trump also said: “Oh, are you happy you voted for me. You are so lucky that I gave you that privilege.”
Trump bragged about the GOP tax cut, which mostly gives wealthy corporations and individuals huge tax breaks to the tune of $1 trillion.
Trump falsely claimed that small and midsize businesses would get “massive tax cuts.”
Trump falsely claimed that “most family farms” would benefit from the cuts to the estate tax, which was debunked in October 2017 by CNN.
“Get up,” Trump told the audience. “That was a tough one to get. That was a tough one. Obviously, you love your families, otherwise, you wouldn’t be standing for that one.”
Trump falsely promised that farmers would no longer lose their farms, which the GOP tax bill does not guarantee.
