INDIANAPOLIS — President Donald Trump served as the keynote speaker at the 91st annual FFA Convention and Expo Saturday afternoon at Bankers Life Fieldhouse. 

After landing at Indianapolis International Airport on Saturday afternoon, President Donald Trump spoke to the media about a mass shooting at a synagogue in Pittsburgh.

The National FFA Organization is historically known as the Future Farmers of America, but according to the group’s website, the name was updated in 1988 to to “reflect the growing diversity and new opportunities in the industry of agriculture.”

Trump was the sixth sitting president to speak in person at the convention.

“It’s been a tradition of FFA to invite the president of the United States to speak to us every year,” said Mark Poeschl, CEO of the National FFA.
