WASHINGTON - Donald Trump is laying out plans to dramatically scale back government regulations, including food safety and environmental measures.

Trump says he wants to eliminate the "Waters of The United States" rule aimed at protecting the America's waterways, and scrap the Environmental Protection Agency's Clean Power Plan, which sets limits on carbon pollution from power plants.

He also wants to limit the scope of what his campaign dubbed "The FDA Food Police," which oversees food safety.

Trump has said he does not believe in climate change science.

The Republican presidential nominee outlined his plans in a speech to the Economic Club of New York in Manhattan.
