Biden Sets Stage for Tech Crackdown With White House Adviser Wu

The tech industry criticized the move. Carl Szabo, vice president and general counsel of NetChoice, which represents Facebook, Amazon, Google and other companies, said creating an antitrust position in a political office like the White House is “a recipe for weaponization of antitrust law for political purposes.”

“I worry he will not search for evidence but will start with a conclusion and try to prove it,” Szabo said about Wu. “I also worry that he has a fundamental opinion that success should be disallowed.”
