WASHINGTON - The Trump campaign pitched rolling back food safety regulations in a fact sheet Thursday, arguing they are burdensome to farmers and "overkill." But the campaign later deleted the proposal from its website.

After sending out the fact sheet, the campaign later issued a new release that did not include the food safety language. The fact sheet was sent out to supplement a speech the billionaire businessman gave to the New York Economic Club that touted fewer regulations but did not specifically mention food safety.

In the original fact sheet, the campaign said that Trump would eliminate several regulations, including the "food police" at the Food and Drug Administration.

The Trump campaign did not respond to a request for comment on the food safety proposal or why it was deleted.
