WASHINGTON (AP) — The Latest on President Donald Trump (all times local):

12:30 p.m.

Farmers are gathering in New Orleans to hear from President Donald Trump as their businesses feel the effects of his trade policies and the partial government shutdown.

Richard Musel of Bennington, Nebraska, a corn and soybean farmer, describes business as "marginal" but says he doesn't blame Trump.

Musel says Trump has been good to farmers and had no choice but to get tough with China.

Lemuel and Shelby Ricks grow cotton, soybeans, wheat and peanuts on their farm in Conway, North Carolina. They say they've been hurt by low commodity prices and the shutdown. They can't apply for financial aid the federal government is giving farmers hurt by Trump's trade policies because of the shutdown.

The Rickses say they voted for Trump in 2016 and will again in 2020.

President Donald Trump is on his way to Louisiana after a mechanical issue delayed Air Force One's departure from Washington.

Trump is traveling to New Orleans on Monday to address the American Farm Bureau Federation's 100th annual convention.

The White House says the Air Force One maintenance crew needed to reset an indicator light on the customized Boeing 747 that was being used for the trip.

Trump remained aboard the aircraft during the delay. Air Force One was airborne after about a half hour.

After he returns to Washington, Trump will welcome the NCAA football champion Clemson Tigers to the White House.
