When Donald Trump, on his first day as president, halted a planned rate cut for government-backed mortgage insurance, Carlos Fernandez was worried about what it meant for his plans to finally buy a home. He even tweeted a plea for information: 

“Most of the stuff that Trump was planning on implementing doesn’t actually affect me directly,” he told CBS MoneyWatch. “This is the first time that a president sat down and started making decisions that personally affected me. It was literally an hour after he became president. That was a little scary for me.”
