4 February 2017
I know we're all completely surprised that self-proclaimed man of the people Donald Trump is making the dismantling of Dodd-Frank a priority, because, as he puts it so eloquently, "I have so many people, friends of mine that had nice businesses, they can't borrow money." I mean, what's the point of being the president if you can't rip up inconvenient legislation to make it easier for your rich buddies to get even more rich? Sadly, the only thing that smacks of disbelief in this story is Donald Trump's claim that he has friends. Everything else seems about par for the course in our newly minted kleptocracy.
