Obama slams Trump for promising to roll back Wall Street reforms

U.S. President Barack Obama speaks about the economy during a visit to Concord Community High School in ElkhartBy Jeff Mason ELKHART, Ind. (Reuters) – President Barack Obama slammed Donald Trump’s proposal to weaken Wall Street reforms and touted his own economic record on Wednesday during a trip to a city he visited three weeks into his presidency that has recovered from its recession lows. Obama’s remarks in Elkhart, Indiana, foreshadowed the arguments he is likely to make on the campaign trail this fall against the likely Republican presidential nominee. Obama did not mention Trump by name, but he lambasted the billionaire’s policy proposals, particularly his promise to dismantle most of the U.S. Dodd-Frank financial regulations.
