Washington: Republican presidential candidate Donald Trump has said that he could cut 70% of federal US regulations if he is elected.
Speaking at an event in New Hampshire, Trump blamed regulations for stifling business but said rules on safety and the environment could stay, BBC reported.
Earlier, one of his advisers said 10% of regulations could be eliminated.
“We are cutting the regulation at a tremendous clip,” Trump said. “I would say 70% of regulations can go. It’s just stopping businesses from growing.”
