Is Trump Planning to Sell Fannie Mae and Freddie Mac?

This is the most interesting thing I have heard coming out of the Trump camp.

I want to hear more details if this moves forward but rank me curious.


  1. Trump is certainly no Ron or Rand Paul ( Who you helped to DEMONIZE ) but to be fair you should have titled the article: Trump Fans Triumph As Fannie Mae & Freddie Mac May Be Up For Sale!

  2. What he would be "selling" is the government's implicit guarantee of Fannie and Freddie's securities -- a monopoly advantage in the mortgage market. These GSEs should not be allowed to be "privatized;" they should be liquidated and their HQs should be sown with salt.
