The AP has a story about a Trump voter that lost her property due to foreclosure by Mnuchin. As I predicted yesterday. Those foreclosures screwed a lot of people including many Trump voters. Perhaps they will learn not to vote against their own interests. Will this be the first of many such stories? I can hope. How might one get a list of people foreclosed by OneWest, reportedly thousands, to find more examples of this buyers remorse?
When Donald Trump named his Treasury secretary, Teena Colebrook felt her heart sink.
She had voted for the president-elect on the belief that he would knock the moneyed elites from their perch in Washington, D.C. And she knew Trump's pick for Treasury—Steven Mnuchin—all too well.
OneWest, a bank formerly owned by a group of investors headed by Mnuchin, had foreclosed on her Los Angeles-area home in the aftermath of the Great Recession, stripping her of the two units she rented as a primary source of income.
"I just wish that I had not voted," said Colebrook, 59. "I have no faith in our government anymore at all. They all promise you the world at the end of a stick and take it away once they get in.”
