Rural Infrastructure Investment Optimism Under Trump Administration

ANDOVER, S.D. — The agricultural industry is optimistic about the investments that will be made in rural infrastructure under a new administration. In fact, President-elect Donald Trump tipped his hand early in his transition that upgrading the nation’s transportation system was a priority. “President-elect Trump decided to devote a portion of his acceptance speech to talking about the need to invest in and improve our infrastructure,” says Mike Steenhoek, executive director of the Soy Transportation Coalition. He says the President-elect has already set the bar with his business background. “Donald Trump is a builder,” Steenhoek says. “He’s a guy who has really built his professional career in building physical assets.”
