President Trump met today (Jan. 24) with top domestic auto executives, vowing to cut regulations that will make it easier to build and sell cars in the U.S.
The Hill reported that Trump told leaders from Ford, General Motors and Fiat Chrysler that he will simplify the regulatory process for constructing manufacturing plants here to boost jobs.
“We’re going to make the process much more simple for the auto companies and for everybody else who wants to do business in the United States,” Trump said. “You’re going to find this to be from being very inhospitable to extremely hospitable.”
The president called himself an environmentalist, but argued that those regulations are “out of control” and promised to push the permitting approval process along at a much faster clip.
“We’re bringing manufacturing back to the United States big league, we’re reducing taxes very substantially and we’re reducing unnecessary regulations,” Trump said.
