MBA Statement on Trump Election Win


Mortgage Bankers Association President and CEO David Stevens, CMB, issued the following statement on behalf of MBA, congratulating Donald Trump on his election Tuesday as 45th President of the United States:

“On behalf of the Mortgage Bankers Association, I want to congratulate Donald Trump on being elected the next President of the United States. Today our industry is operating in the safest and soundest lending environment ever designed. MBA will work with President-Elect Trump and his Administration, as well as with the new Congress, with the goal of advancing an agenda that restores housing as a lead economic driver for individual wealth creation and the nation as a whole.

“Therefore, it is critical that President Trump focus on three main areas–ensuring an adequate supply of affordable housing, bringing first time homebuyers back into the housing market and ensuring certainty in regulations. We are looking forward to engaging with policymakers, new and old, to guarantee sustainable access to credit for qualified consumers, and restore balance and prosperity to the real estate markets.”

The Mortgage Action Alliance, the MBA grassroots advocacy arm, will discuss the 2016 election results next Tuesday, Nov. 15 during its Quarterly Advocacy Update.

The event will take place from 2:00-3:00 p.m. ET.  

Led by MBA’s Legislative and Political Affairs team, the MAA Quarterly Advocacy Update Webinar will provide MAA members (and prospective MAA members) with a recap of the 2016 election results and their implications for the real estate finance industry, as well as a legislative and regulatory briefing on topical issues facing the industry through the rest of 2016 and in the next Congress.  

The update will be led by Bill Killmer, MBA Senior Vice President of Legislative and Political Affairs, with members of the MBA Legislative and Political Affairs department.
