Trump has said he’d block AT&T’s acquisition of Time Warner if elected, but if the Dallas telco is concerned, its chief financial officer is doing a good job hiding it.
“A Trump, and more importantly, all republican Congress and President, which is the first since 1928, opens up the possibility of dialing back Dodd Frank and the CFPB which both have been extremely costly for banking and in particularly community banks.
"This will open the path for more reasonable legislation to deal with outlier issues that helped cause the crisis in 2008 rather than a blanket set of over regulation that restricts lending and commerce.
"This will have the largest positive impact on banking.”
"They're all up," he said. "I think because they're hopeful President Trump will be, how should I say, more accommodating to the oil and gas industry."

Good news about the bit about Oil and Gas, but I'm not sure how much of it is in the hands of our government at this point. The world is changing and is moving away from O&G, so, even if Trump is more accommodating, I really wonder if it will matter all that much.
I'd be curious to see how much better Texas could be doing if that particular industry were to bounce back. We are already doing extremely well even with a oil and gas not doing so hot, so we'd be killing it if that were to change.
