In another sign that Donald Trump will run the country as a dictator, President Donald Trump bypassed Congress and signed an order on Monday that will dramatically pare back federal regulations on businesses, especially big banks, and big oil companies.
According to Business Insider, the executive order requires agencies to cut two existing regulations for every new rule introduced.
“This will be the biggest such act that our country has ever seen. There will be regulation, there will be control, but it will be normalized control,” Trump said as he signed the order in the Oval Office, surrounded by a group of small business owners.
Trump’s executive action will prepare a process for the White House to set an annual cap on the cost of new regulations, a senior official told reporters ahead of the signing.
“For the rest of fiscal 2017, that cap on new regulations would be $0,” the official said on customary condition of anonymity.
Trump, a businessman turned politician, campaigned on a promise to reduce federal regulations that he said burdened American businesses.
