Watch Online: Donald Trump Issues Executive Order on Taxes

Credit: fortune.com

And so it begins.


As investors and the general public alike grow anxious for the tax cuts President Donald Trump promised on the campaign trail, the one-time businessman is making a move.


The President is expected to issue a series of executive actions Friday.


According to a White House official Thursday, one order will call for Treasury Secretary Steven Mnuchin to review his departments tax regulations in a bid to start lowering taxes. Another two memoranda will call for an examination of portions of the 2010 Dodd-Frank Wall Street reform law -- aimed at slashing regulations.


It’s still unclear when exactly those tax cuts will come. Though the August date once quoted by Mnuchin is looking unrealistic even to the secretary himself.
