In the coming weeks, the Education Department plans to roll back protections for college graduates saddled with student debt from sham for-profit universitiesAnd in the opening months of his presidency, Trump signed congressional resolutions permanently reversing rules that would have required companies seeking significant federal contracts to disclose violations of labour standards, and would have required oil, gas and mining companies to disclose payments made to foreign governments in exchange for access to drilling or mining rights. .market-data-no-chart { display: none !important; } #quotes-five-years .spinner { position: absolute; top: 20px; } #quotes-one-day .spinner { position: absolute; top: 20px; } Related Quotes 5 years 1 Day Last updated: Updating...

"President Trump has been focused on the American worker since the very first days of his administration, during which he withdrew from the Trans-Pacific Partnership, signed an executive order promoting domestic manufacturing in pipeline construction and stopped the previous administration's job-killing regulatory overreach in its tracks."Voters looking for tangible benefitsAnd the views of Trump among his stalwart supporters are not likely to be altered by in-the-weeds regulatory rollbacks, or even tax breaks that benefit the wealthyKathleen Hall Jamieson, director of the Annenberg Public Policy Center at the University of Pennsylvania, said that while "elites" in places like Washington might find dissonance between what Trump says and does, his supporters are most likely viewing him primarily through the lens of a s
