LMFAO Trump literally had ZERO say in that decision period.....Moron in Chief needs to take credit for everything though, But NO he had NOTHING to do with it. The President is NEVER asked for his opinion on these sorts of things, nor does the President's opinion matter. The decision is made by the DOJ WITHOUT Cheeto Hitler input and the FTC....Those TWO departments look at it and decide if its something that should be allowed....But clearly Trumpies are too stupid to know any different.....Same with the AT&T/Time-Warner merger....Its being blocked by the DOJ and the FTC, NOT the moron in the oval office because its one cable/Internet provider trying to merge with another cable/internet provider meaning one less cable/internet provider
