One woman who voted for President-elect Donald Trump has a nasty personal history with his pick to run the Treasury Department.
Teena Colebrook, 59, told the Associated Press about how OneWest, which was owned by group of investors headed by Steven Mnuchin, Trump's treasury secretary nominee, had foreclosed on her two-unit Los Angeles home in the wake of the 2008 financial crisis.
"I just wish that I had not voted," Colebrook said, according to the AP. "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."
More from AP's look into OneWest:
Less than a month after his presidential win, Trump's populist appeal has started to clash with a Cabinet of billionaires and millionaires that he believes can energize economic growth. ...
The prospect of Mnuchin leading the Treasury Department prompted Colebrook and other OneWest borrowers who say they unfairly faced foreclosure to contact The Associated Press. Colebrook wishes she could meet with Trump to explain why she feels betrayed by his Cabinet selection after believing that his presidency could restore the balance of power to everyday people.
"He doesn't want the truth," she said. "He's now backing his buddies."
