Trump Takes Credit for Killing Hundreds of Regulations That Were Already Dead

December 12, 2017

“Overstated, absolutely,” Stuart Shapiro, a Rutgers University professor who served as a White House regulatory analyst under Republican and Democrat administrations, said of the Trump administration claims.

Trump’s attempts to completely derail rules often have been abandoned in the face of lawsuits. The Brookings Institution, which is tracking regulatory actions under Trump, lists only 12 existing rules that were rescinded or rewritten since he took office, though it acknowledges the list is not complete. Those fell into rare procedural gaps that allowed them to be swiftly dispatched, such as overturning rules originally enacted on an interim basis.
