Are Amazon, Facebook and Google violating antitrust laws?

Trump administration is scrutinizing Amazon, Facebook and Google

In an interview with Axios’ Jonathan Swan and Jim VandeHei on the news site’s premiere HBO show Sunday night, Trump said the European Union’s $5 billion fine against Google made him consider pursuing regulation.

“You look at the European Union, they fined I guess it was Google, billions of dollars, and frankly I don’t like that they’re doing that because that’s an American company,” Trump said. “I don’t think it’s good that they’re doing that. But if anybody does that, it should be us doing it.”

Swan asked if Trump would direct the Justice Department to look into the company as a monopoly, and Trump responded it was “certainly something we’re looking at.”
