Trump Demands a Standing Ovation from Farmers in Nashville

President Donald Trump on Monday commanded an audience in Nashville, Tennessee to stand up to applaud him.


While touting the recently enacted tax reform legislation during an address at the American Farm Bureau Federation, Trump said Americans would now be able to “keep your farms in the family” because of changes to the estate tax.

“Get up,” Trump said as the audience started clapping.

“That was a tough one to get,” he added. “That was a tough one. Obviously you love your families, otherwise, you wouldn’t be standing for that one.”

During the speech, Trump also called on Americans to protect the nation’s flag and insisted he would crack down on immigration.

“We are going to end chain migration, we are going to end the lottery system, and we are going to build the wall,” he remarked.
