Breaking Campaign Promises, Trump Guts Consumer Protections on Wall Street

Feb 03, 2017

American Bridge President Jessica Mackler released the following statement on the Trump Administration’s plans to gut consumer protections and help banks to exploit the American people:

“Another day, another broken promise from President Trump as he continues selling out American working people. Rather than draining the swamp, Trump flooded it — stacking his cabinet with more major campaign donors and Wall Street executives than any other recent president. The Trump Administration is a dream come true for Goldman Sachs and Wall Street, who have been trying to repeal consumer protections for years, but it’s a punch in the gut for average Americans who lost their homes and postponed retirement as big banks tanked the economy in 2008.”
