TRUMP'S WALL STREET-APPROVED SHORT LIST FOR CFPB DIRECTOR
The names on Trump's reported short list for CFPB Director indicate he's likely to nominate a corrupt financial industry insider rather than a champion for consumers. Each man on the list has taken campaign contributions from, been funded by, or represented the big banks, predatory lenders, and Wall Street special interests that they would be expected to hold accountable as CFPB Director. We deserve better."
WHY YOU SHOULD BE WORRIED ABOUT TRUMP'S PICK FOR CFPB
President Trump and congressional Republicans backed by big banks and other special interests are hell-bent on destroying the Consumer Financial Protection Bureau (CFPB). To date, the CFPB has taken $12 billion from big banks, predatory lenders, and other shady financial institutions and returned it to the more than 29 million Americans they screwed over. Trump and his allies see an opportunity to stop this type of accountability and tip the scales back in Wall Street’s favor. We can’t let them.
