Donald Trump: Protect the middle class, DON'T Repeal Dodd-Frank!

Dodd-Frank is one of the key protections consumers were given after the 2008 financial crisis. Donald Trump - per usual, unconcerned with the average American - wants it gone.

In 2008, several Wall Street banks dismantled the United States economy. Millions of Americans lost their homes, jobs, and livelihoods. Subprime lending and other phony banking practices had crippled the nation into debt and fear. But a few key pieces of legislation were passed to prevent similar events from happening in the future. Dodd-Frank and the fiduciary rule placed much-needed restrictions on banks. Some politicians, like Bernie Sanders, argued that we need even stronger regulations - the opposite of cutting back on this important progress, like Trump has suggested.

If Trump cared at all about consumers or middle-class Americans, he wouldn't repeal Dodd-Frank. But his cabinet and other appointees show us the truth: he's cozy with Wall Street and the uber-wealthy, not the average citizen.

Donald Trump has lived up to many of his most horrifying promises thus far. Perhaps the one campaign piece we want him to actually follow through with is keeping the powerful and wealthy in check. Sign now to demand: DO NOT repeal Dodd-Frank! Keep banks in check and prevent another recession!
