LOVE COUNTY, Oklahoma -

Some Oklahoma ranchers and farmers say they're worried about President Donald Trump's plan to cut the U.S. Department of Agriculture's budget by more than $4 billion.

The White House said despite the proposed cuts the president supports economic development in rural America.

Larry Hicks has been farming and ranching in Love County for nearly 60 years; he said he's worried about the administration's relations with other countries, mainly Mexico.

"We ship a lot of wheat, and corn and other products by rail right straight into old Mexico," Hicks said.

Mr. Trump signed an executive order last month, which established a task force to learn more about the obstacles farmers and ranchers face.
