President Trump, in his Bloomberg interview, made clear he is considering a new version of Glass-Steagall.  Such law would erect a wall between banks' consumer and investment banking activities.  This is something favored across party lines by champions of average Americans.  Bernie Sanders, for example, has advocated for Glass-Steagall.  However, such law is vigorously opposed by wealthy banking elites and by fat-cat Republican members of Congress who have other priorities.
