Order aims to roll back Dodd-Frank


WASHINGTON — President Donald Trump set the stage Friday for a rollback of regulation­s that were intended to curtail corporate tax evasion and prevent another financial crisis.

Frustrated by the slow pace in Congress on his goal of overhaulin­g the 2010 Dodd-Frank financial regulation law and the fact that his mission of rewriting the tax code remains in limbo, Mr. Trump ordered his Treasury Department on Friday to review measures put in place by the Obama administra­tion.

Critics said if the reviews he requested become policy, it would represent a return to the freewheeli­ng days that led up to the 2008 financial crisis.
