If you can't stand the heat...

Well, basically it's deregulating the banking industry so that Trump's good friends can borrow money again. Don't worry, the economic meltdown of 2008 will never happen again.

 

Trumps friends can borrow money? Again?

For what?

Who cares for what. They were apparently deemed a poor risk. The repeal undoes that.

But that's okay, the government will bail out the US banks again on the taxpayers dime.

"Friends of mine, who have nice businesses, who can't borrow money. They just can't get any money because the banks just won't let them borrow, because of the rules and regulations in Dodd-Frank."

He has said that. So what.

The MSM is eating him alive for saying he "wants to repeal Dodd-Frank".

well your explanation means little to someone from the UK...

The bigger things that concern me are wars.....and world affairs.. not some poorly understood domestic banking law.....(by us not in the US of course)

My worries are about wars with China, and Russia, you know...the kind of things that can REALLY fubar the world

not banking laws

All Dodd-Frank did was, through the force of GOV, create larger too-big-to-fails and pushed out any smaller competitors..... Crony-Capitalsm.  It's stifled borrowing and slowed growth among the middle class folks.  Let's not forget it was another GOV program, Freddie and Fanny, that created the housing bubble.  All the predatory investment banks did was follow the guidelines the GOV laid out by encouraging borrowing to individuals clearly unable to pay.

Next time preface your requirement list (re: What reason would anyone have for being anti-Trump?) a little more carefully then.

When we're done with 1) then we get on to 2).

Right...

The stock market is at an all-time high since Trump was elected.

Stocks are on a tear, and the US dollar is rising — all since Donald Trump was elected the 45th US president.

I will bend, but I will never break.

I'm not anti-Republican or anti-Conservative. I am anti-Trump and half his co-horts (the other half are reasonable people)..

It's a kakocracy (rule by the worst element of society).
