Donald Trump made clear the type of Americans he's really supporting by promising to gut Dodd/Frank, the agency designed to protect consumers from the evils of Wall street because his pals can't get bank loans.
February 3, 2017

Donald Trump held a meeting with business leaders Friday morning and told the world that he's going to gut Dodd/Frank because his best buddies can't get business loans.

Trump praised JP Morgan's CEO Jamie Dimon, a member of his economic advisory board, during the meeting and then set his sights on Dodd-Frank, the Wall Street Reform and Consumer Protection Act.

Trump talked about cutting taxes and then said, "...and to do what we have to do in terms of regulation. We have some of the bankers here, there's nobody better to tell me about Dodd/Frank than Jamie."

He continued, "We expect to cut a lot out of Dodd/Frank because frankly I have so many people, friends of mine, who have nice businesses, they can't borrow money because the banks just won't let them borrow because of rules and regulations and Dodd/Frank, so we'll be talking about that in terms of the banking industry."

Trump talked about helping all Americans during his campaign, but only the rubes believed that.

Did Trump supporters actually think he would protect them from banksters and billionaires? hahahahaha.
