It’s also possible that Trump and Cordray may yet find common ground. * * *
The Trump-Pence transition team, while generally tagging the Dodd-Frank Act as a brake on economic growth, has said nothing specific about the CFPB or its director. And although the conventional wisdom is that there’s little common ground between Trump and Cordray, there is the possibility, however remote, that Trump might actually see Cordray as an ally.
It’s not likely, but neither is it impossible, said F. Paul Bland, Jr., executive director of Public Justice. Like many others, he said a dismissal of Cordray by Trump would undermine Trump’s campaign pledges to advance an economic agenda to protect working class voters.
