Zuckerberg says Warren as president would be bad for tech2019|02:02
A feud appears to be brewing between Facebook CEO Mark Zuckerberg and Democratic Senator Elizabeth Warren. According to audio of two internal company meetings published Tuesday by The Verge, Zuckerberg told employees in July that he would "go to the mat" to defeat an effort to break up the world's largest social media company if Warren takes the White House. ”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. And does that still suck for us? Yeah. I mean, I don't want to have a major lawsuit against our own government." That brought a swift retort from Warren, who tweeted Tuesday: ”What would really 'suck' is if we don't fix a corrupt system that lets giant companies like Facebook engage in illegal anticompetitive practices, stomp on consumer privacy rights and repeatedly fumble their responsibility to protect our democracy. Facebook declined to comment on Tuesday.
