Vice President Joe Biden would likely abandon the Trump administration’s approach to housing-finance reform if elected, experts say.

Fannie and Freddie’s shareholders have been kept in limbo throughout those years — they’ve watched as the enterprises’ profits were swept to the Treasury Department to repay the federal government, and they’ve gone without a dividend in that time.
