Each year the National FFA Organization invites the sitting President of the United States to attend the National FFA Convention and Expo. The tradition started with former President Harry Truman. President George H.W. Bush was the last sitting president to attend the event. First Lady Michelle Obama brought pre-recorded greetings back in 2015 as did vice president Mike Pence last year.
Over 60,000 FFA members and guests attended the 91st National FFA convention that was held in Indianapolis. The event concluded Saturday with President Trump addressing convention attendees.
Lane Nordlund shares a few of the highlights from the Presidential address.
