For reasons that may not be immediately obvious to leaders and the general public alike, this new and first ever national agreement to partner between CFPB (Consumer Financial Protection Bureau) and Operation HOPE is incredibly important. I will write much more on this in coming days and weeks, but for the moment let me say this. As the CFPB helps to insure the nation has a strong measure of consumer protection, HOPE will work to insure that every American has an equal measure of consumer empowerment available to them.
Let's go. This is important. It makes everyone better, stronger, more resilient.
