Over the weekend, the White House promised an executive order for agriculture. In a memo to reporters, the White House press office said President Donald Trump would hold a roundtable discussion with farmers on Tuesday and also sign an executive order to protect and provide relief for rural America. Details on the executive order are expected to be similar to the Rural Council established by an executive order by President Barack Obama in June 2011.
The expected Agriculture and Rural Task Force Executive Order would create an interagency task force to examine the concerns of rural America and suggest legislative and regulatory changes to address those concerns.
