The New York Times DealBook published Professor Jeff Sovern’s column, Trump Faces Stark Choice: Protect Consumers or Banks, on January 18. The first and last paragraphs read:

President-elect Donald J. Trump will soon face a stark choice: whether to protect consumers, the ordinary Americans he pledged to defend against a system he criticized as rigged — or to side with that system.

If Mr. Trump chooses not to preserve a strong, independent bureau that protects consumers, he will have enabled his opponents in four years to attack him not only for failing to live up to his rhetoric, but for having become the leader of what he once condemned.

On January 17, Professor Sovern spoke in an ABA Section on Antitrust webinar titled Consumer Protection in a Trump Administration.
