Wall Street is not pleased.
It's not the Fed, or regulators, or the industry's least-favorite senators who chide bankers and hedge fund execs from time to time. It's Donald Trump. One finance exec who asked not to be identified and who previously was a staunch supporter of Trump's candidacy described bankers, point blank, as really angry. He's not alone.
"Folks have definitely checked out," said another Wall Streeter who has access to the campaign finance circuit in New York.
At events hosted by some of Trump's Wall Street allies, it has become increasingly uncommon to find finance chairs and co-chairs from previous presidential campaigns, that source said.
Recently, Trump publicized what he called his rejection of a meeting with Charles and David Koch, wealthy backers of GOP campaigns — though it does not appear the brothers ever asked for a meeting. At the same time, Trump continues to lag Democratic nominee Hillary Clinton in the fundraising department, which could make the financial services sector's support increasingly crucial for the GOP nominee.
