It’s really hard for me to believe this is tonight’s business news and not a science fiction story but apparently the first three actions in the Trump White House were apparently to: 1) remove scientific data about climate change from the government’s web site, 2) remove online information defending equal rights for minorities, and 3) cancelling a planned savings for working class homeowners of about $500 per year in their mortgage insurance costs.
Mortgage insurance is paid by financially struggling homeowners who have less than 20% equity in their homes so this $500 expense, more or less, is likely a big deal to their financial security. The move increases profits for large business banks.
What kind of person would do this without fear of outright disalienation by the people? Does he believe that his supporters love him so much they will follow him right up to their financial slaughter?
It appears that this administration could be far worse for the welfare of ordinary Americans than even the strongest Trump opponents feared.
