WASHINGTON, Feb 3 - President Donald Trump on Friday will call on the US Labor Department to delay for 180 days the implementation of its fiduciary duty rule requiring brokers offering retirement investment advice to put their clients' interest first, according to a draft memo seen by Reuters.

The draft memo also calls for the Labor Department to conduct a legal and economic review of the rule. If the department then concludes the rule is out of step with the administration's policies, the draft memo says the department should take steps to rescind it.
