Executives and employees at the nation’s biggest banks are giving a boost to former Vice President Joe Biden’s campaign for the White House, despite economic policies under President Donald Trump that produced record profits for the industry. …But in an era of growing social and racial unrest, as well as income inequality, many bankers are voting beyond their wallets in the belief that Trump is stoking those divisions, industry experts say. …”These contributions speak to the deep unease Democrats and many independents have with national policy on personal priorities such as equality, civility and constitutionality,” said Federal Financial Analytics managing partner Karen Petrou, who advises bank executives on policy. The bankers, she said, are “expressing themselves as well as their company’s priorities when they make contributions.”
