- Trump lashed out at Facebook and other major tech companies in a Fox News interview.
- He said Facebook CEO Mark Zuckerberg “used to come to the White House to kiss my ass.”
- Legal experts say Trump’s lawsuits against the tech companies are flawed and doomed to fail.
Former President Donald Trump lashed out at Facebook CEO Mark Zuckerberg during an interview with the Fox News host Greg Gutfeld that aired on Thursday.
Trump, who was permanently barred from Twitter and booted from Facebook until January 2023 for inciting violence around the Capitol riot, called Zuckerberg and other tech leaders “sick.”
“He used to come to the White House to kiss my ass,” Trump told Gutfeld of Zuckerberg. “And I’d say, ‘Oh, that’s nice.’ I have the head of Facebook coming with his lovely wife.
“And they come, and they’d have dinner with me in the White House. And then you see what they do about me and about Republicans, and it’s just sort of crazy. But that’s the way the world works.”
