Speaking at the American Farm Bureau’s annual convention on Jan. 8, President Trump said Congress would include the subsidies for crop insurance premiums in the upcoming Farm Bill.

“I‘m looking forward to working with Congress to pass the farm bill on time so that it delivers for all of you and I support a bill that includes crop insurance,” Trump said after noting Senate Agriculture Committee Chairman Pat Roberts was in attendance. In May, Trump angered farm groups when he proposed cutting $46.54 billion in federal agricultural funding, mostly by capping the amount the government chips in toward crop insurance.Watch Video
