But as we approach his one-year anniversary in office, Trump's words on the campaign trail ring hollow as the promises he made to his base go unfulfilled.
Fleischmann said Trump was very kind and wanted the people of Tennessee to know he truly cares about their well-being. "Corrupt politics left our economies hurting, stagnant and millions of hard-working employees completely forgotten".

Trump talked about the new tax plan in place as well. "That is a tremendous thing", he said of the ability to deduct it all in one year as opposed to over many years.
The estate tax was especially unpopular with farmers, who often seek to give their sizable agricultural properties to children.
Trump stressed that most farmers would be exempt from inheritance tax: "From now on, most family farms and small-business owners will be spared ... the deeply unfair estate tax - known as the death tax - so you can keep your farms in the family".
Exit polls in 2016 showed that Trump had much more support from rural voters than from voters in cities and suburbs.

In his Farm Bureau speech, the president said the administration is "reviewing all our trade agreements to make sure that they are fair and reciprocal".
