That’s a big “presumably”. Trump speaks about the public not being properly served. A good fact-check (which I agree the AP’s is not) would look at _both_ sector-level indicators and at CFPB’s individual enforcement actions.

It would not, as you do, cite a Cato Institute blog post titled “Please Stop the Tyranny”. (Cato is a libertarian think tank, originally founded as the Charles Koch Foundation.) If it did cite partisan think tank analysis (more rigorous than a blog post), it should do so across the political spectrum.
