President Donald Trump spoke with Agri-Pulse before his speech at the American Farm Bureau Federation's 99th annual convention in Nashville Monday, and we asked him questions that many farmers and ranchers have on their minds.

Trump said, “farm prices have really been moving down rapidly over the last four years” and “we’d like to see prices go up so that you can do a bit better.”
