A woman who voted for Donald Trump for president had her home foreclosed on by the bank run by Steven Mnuchin, his pick to be Treasury Secretary.
In an interview with the Associated Press, Los Angeles resident Teena Colebrook now says, “I just wish that I had not voted.” She added, “”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.”
Mnuchin and a team of investors ran OneWest, who foreclosed on Colebrook’s home during the Great Recession, taking over two units she rented – which were her primary sources of income.
Trump in the days leading up to the election had claimed that he was “draining the swamp” in Washington, D.C., but so far the bulk of his appointments have been millionaires and billionaires well entrenched in the swamp of corruption and cronyism that so many dislike about politics.
Speaking about Trump’s betrayal, Colebrook said, “He doesn’t want the truth. He’s now backing his buddies.”
