Two Ways Trump Could End Too Big To Fail

President Donald Trump has been using executive orders to push his deregulation and financial reform agenda, but there are two alternative avenues available to him to achieve key wins in this arena. Over the course of his first month in office, Trump has targeted $181 billion-worth of Obama-era regulations with executive orders. One of Trump’s key campaign promises was to dismantle the “disaster,” or 2,300 page Dodd-Frank Act. While he has previously used orders to begin chipping away at Dodd-Frank, Trump could try working through the Treasury or the Oval Office to significantly scale back associated financial regulations.
