Looks like Mark Zuckerberg, Facebook’s CEO, will sue the U.S. Government if Elizabeth Warren is elected president in 2020.
“You have someone like Elizabeth Warren thinks that the right answer is to break up the companies … I mean, if she gets elected president then I would bet that we will have a legal challenge, and I would bet that we will win the legal challenge,” -Mark Zuckerberg
In the latest polls, Warren has enjoyed a surge in approval by Democrat voters and it looks like she may be the 2020 Presidential nominee.
Warren lends herself as a supporter of a socialist agenda as she praises bold anti-business objectives that call for big companies, like Facebook, to be shut down. She also supports a Medicare for all agenda and the infamously bad legislation in the Green New Deal.

Warren makes bold statements about current tech companies and her plan to level the playing field.
“I want a government that makes sure everybody — even the biggest and most powerful companies in America — plays by the rules,”…And I want to make sure that the next generation of great American tech companies can flourish. To do that, we need to stop this generation of big tech companies from throwing around their political power to shape the rules in their favor and throwing around their economic power to snuff out or buy up every potential competitor.”
Zuck met with President Trump and D.C. Lawmakers last month to go over the future internet regulation. During these meetings, Zuckerberg met with Sen. Josh Hawley, R-Mo., who has proposed a bill to ban addictive features on social media like limitless scrolling and auto play. According to Hawley, Zuckerberg said “no.”
Just finished meeting w @facebook CEO Mark Zuckerberg. Had a frank conversation. Challenged him to do two things to show FB is serious about bias, privacy & competition. 1) Sell WhatsApp & Instagram 2) Submit to independent, third-party audit on censorship. He said no to both

Zuckerberg made his way to Washington because of the latest concerns by lawmakers who want to take a closer look at the company due to privacy and censorship bias. Facebook is currently under investigation by state attorneys general and the Federal Trade Commission (FTC). The company has been fined $5 Billion over privacy policies and has agreed to conduct new oversight on how user data is handled.
