Josh Hawley on Big Tech: ‘Break Them up ... Is What We Need to Do’

‘We have got a long history in this country of trust busting’

EXCERPT:

HAWLEY: "Break them up. That's exactly what I want to do. That is what we need to do. I think we have got a long history in this country of trust busting when we see monopoly corporations that have so much power that they are stifling competition, that they are stifling innovation and they're trying to exert political power. This happened a century ago during the Gilded Age, the railroad and other corporations, we broke them up and that is exactly what we ought to do to these Big Tech companies today. They are too powerful."
