Trump: Time to Force Bank Lending


The US economy will never recover until banks start lending, and they are not doing that now despite claims to the contrary by the financial institutions, real estate developer Donald Trump told CNBC Tuesday.

"Banks are not lending money, no matter how prime you are," Trump said. "The economy can't come back until the banks start lending."

"It's really the money they have been given by the government and they're not lending it," he said.
