President Donald Trump discussed plans to cut taxes and regulations in a meeting with business executives in the White House, the Washington Post reported Monday.
Trump said he aims to remove at least 75 percent of regulations that govern businesses; expedite plans to build factories; and impose border tax on companies that take production out of the U.S., Jenna Johnson and Ylan Mui wrote.
Company leaders who attended the meeting included Lockheed Martin‘s Marillyn Hewson, Ford Motor‘s Mark Fields, Dell Technologies‘ Michael Dell, Whirlpool‘s Jeff Fettig, Johnson & Johnson‘s Alex Gorsky, Dow Chemical‘s Andrew Liveris and others.
