CFPB Director Nominee Rohit Chopra Will Change Trump’s Predator
Protection Bureau Back to a Consumer Protection Bureau
Washington, D.C. – Dennis M. Kelleher, President and Chief Executive Officer of Better Markets, issued the following statement in response to President-elect Joe Biden’s choice of Rohit Chopra to lead the Consumer Financial Protection Bureau (CFPB):
“President-elect Biden’s choice of Rohit Chopra to lead the Consumer Financial Protection Bureau (CFPB) sends a unmistakable message to the financial predators and lawbreakers roaming free that there’s a new cop on the financial industry beat: the CFPB is back in business and is going to fulfill its mission of protecting Main Street consumers, including the military, elderly, vulnerable and poorest among us who are repeatedly targeted by financial predators.
“As Director, Rohit Chopra will end President Trump’s despicable record of siding time and again with industry lawbreakers over ripped off and abused Main Street workers and families. He will ensure that Trump’s predator protection bureau will once again become a consumer protection bureau, as it was intended to be.”
