    A Florida bank announced on Thursday that they have closed President Donald Trump’s bank accounts. Trump’s money-market accounts at Banks United held between $5.1 million and $25.2 million, according to his financial disclosures. We no longer have any depository relationship with him,” Banks United told the Washington Post. Professional Bank also announced that they will no longer be doing business with the former president or his organizations in a statement last week. Additionally, Signature Bank in New York and Deutsche Bank have also said that they have cut ties with Trump and his businesses. “Signature Bank notably took a strong...
  • Fed Rule Bars Banks From Targeting Gun Manufacturers

    Washington Free Beacon ^ | 1/15/2021 | Stephen Gutowski
    The Trump administration adopted a new rule to prevent big banks from denying services to gun manufacturers and other industries in a rebuke of an Obama-era financial program. The Office of the Comptroller of the Currency (OCC) rule, which was finalized on Thursday, will instruct large financial institutions to only deny services to specific clients on a case-by-case basis instead of making industry-wide blacklists. The regulation came as a rebuke to Operation Choke Point, which sought to pressure big banks to cut ties with businesses disfavored by the Obama administration, including the gun and payday lending industries. Operation Choke Point—coupled...

    As a growing list of companies cut political spending in the wake of last week’s Capitol Hill riots, some banks that have done business with President Donald Trump are following suit. Deutsche Bank DB, -0.09% will no longer do business with Trump or any of his companies, Bloomberg News reported on Tuesday, citing sources. A spokesman from the German lender declined to comment. Trump reportedly owes the bank over $300 million. Meanwhile, Signature Bank SBNY, +0.22% on Tuesday released a statement on its website, calling for Trump to step down.

  • Banks Give Black-Owned Businesses Advantage on Supply-Chain Finance Terms. Programs spring from multibillion-dollar commitments banks made to expand lending and investment after Black Lives Matter protests this year

    Wall Street Journal ^ | November 22, 2020 | Julie Steinberg
    The biggest banks in the U.S. will give Black-owned businesses advantageous terms on a crucial type of financing that companies use to manage their cash flow, a novel effort to narrow the wealth gap between white and non-white communities. Banks made multibillion-dollar commitments to expand lending to Black consumers and businesses after the wave of protests throughout the U.S sparked by the killing of George Floyd. The targeted lending is meant to correct decades of discrimination in lending whereby banks denied loans to Black borrowers or steered them toward products with high interest rates and other terms many couldn’t afford....

    In early 1973, as Joe Biden was settling into his new job in Washington, DC, Ralph Nader published a deconstruction of what made the freshman Democratic senator’s state of Delaware, the most anodyne of states, so exceptional. The answer, The Company State explained, had to do with the unique relationship between government and commerce: Delaware was less a democracy than a fiefdom, contorting its laws to meet the demands of its corporate lords. Preeminent among them was the chemical giant DuPont. Nader took readers to Rodney Square, in the heart of Wilmington. There was the ritzy Hotel du Pont, housed...

    In the summer of 2017, the Trump Administration proposed and the Congress enacted the Tax Cuts and Jobs Act. This legislation cut tax rates in every bracket and ensured higher take-home pay for the working and middle classes. The average family of four saved $2,000 in taxes and 91% in the middle income quintile received a tax cut. The US economy boomed. During this week's debate Democratic presidential candidate Joe Biden told viewers that "I'm going to eliminate the Trump tax cuts. The Republican notion that people have a right to keep more of their hard-earned money is mistaken and...

    Democrat presidential candidate Joe Biden is raking in Wall Street cash from all the big banks at five times the rate of President Trump, a CNN report admits. An analysis by CNN found that “all the big banks are backing Biden” against Trump, with the former vice president taking a larger margin of Wall Street donations than even failed Democrat presidential candidate Hillary Clinton did in 2016. CNN reports: The securities and investment industry donated just $10.5 million to Trump’s presidential campaign and outside groups aligned with it, according to a new tally by OpenSecrets. It has sent nearly five...

    If you were president of the United States, would you hire an alleged former spy for Fidel Castro to be ambassador to El Salvador, a country teetering on the brink of hard-core socialism? President Obama just did. On Dec. 9, Obama nominated Mari Del Carmen Aponte to be ambassador to El Salvador, despite the fact that in the late 1990s, the FBI discovered that she was working with Cuban intelligence officers. According to Insight Magazine, "When the FBI eventually questioned her about her involvement with Cuban intelligence, she reportedly refused to cooperate." Why would Aponte escape the Obama administration's scrutiny?...

    The relationship between banks and cryptocurrency in the United States has been as complicated as the concept of “money” itself. But today’s interpretive letter from the Office of the Comptroller of the Currency (OCC) may be changing all of that. The OCC serves to charter, regulate and supervise national banks. Today’s OCC letter clarifies that national banks have the authority to provide fiat bank accounts and cryptocurrency custodial services to cryptocurrency businesses. This clarification from the OCC may open the doors for larger financial institutions to be more comfortable providing traditional bank accounts to cryptocurrency companies, as well as actually provide...

    John Jacob Astor, the richest man on board the Titanic, famously gave up a seat in the final lifeboat when he saw two young children still on the ship's deck. "Women and children first" was the order from the ship's captain, and the final numbers show just how much the men on board -- even the rich and powerful -- adhered to that call. Women on the Titanic had a 75% survival rate, compared with just 17% for men. Besides some crazed radical feminists, most of us view the chivalry displayed on that sinking ship with a sense of awe...
