ABA Statement on 2016 Election Results

By Rob Nichols, ABA president and CEO

​“We congratulate Donald Trump on his election as the 45th president of the United States and all other winners of last night’s election.  ABA is eager to work with the new administration and the 115th Congress to achieve our shared goals for a vibrant and growing economy. 
 
“We call on the administration and Congress to come together and work for the common good.  We look forward to working with members of both parties on policy solutions that will allow banks to help accelerate economic growth, create jobs, better serve their local communities and help their customers and clients succeed.”
