How Trump’s Political Appointees Overruled Tougher Settlements With Big Banks - a recipe for another financial crash. That's when  the masses "lose their shirts" & the wealthy feast on all the defaults. The way increasing wealth flows to the obscenely wealthy as the masses lose their "hard-earned"  assets.  This is the myth of "trickle-down" - the only thing "trickling-down" is the crap being offered the public at large ! History repeating itself !

"Will there be any accountability for these recent billionaire enablers of Donald Trump, who saw what damage he caused and still stood by him?"

Bravo to see, at last, initiatives with some of the leading "movers & shakers" in the World.
