Ignore the Tweets! Merger Enforcement in Trump Era

April 1, 2017, The Street

Theodore Voorhees is quoted by The Street in an article regarding concern over President Trump’s involvement in merger enforcement. Commenting on Trump’s tweets, Voorhees says, "There is a danger here with public perception. We've already seen that the president has difficulty restraining himself from tweeting things but the Administration that been put around him has shown the ability to ignore the tweets and to disagree" with the pronouncements that flow from Trump's thumbs. 

Voorhees also adds that he does not expect there to be any meaningful break from established antitrust practice under Trump. "I would not expect any major difference in the new Administration versus the Obama Administration versus the George Bush Administration.”
