Former President Donald Trump took his feud with three massive tech companies to court, filing lawsuits that legal experts say are all but guaranteed to fail – even if they rally Republican voters, fundraisers and donors.
Trump revealed Wednesday that he is suing Facebook, Twitter, and Google, as well as their respective CEOs, in class-action lawsuits.
Trump, who has a history of threatening legal action but not always following through, made the announcement at his golf club in Bedminster, New Jersey, alongside two leaders from the America First Policy Institute, a pro-Trump nonprofit group.
Shortly after the news conference wrapped, Trump’s political entities started sending out fundraising messages that touted the lawsuits in their appeals for money.
One such text message, written as if it were coming from Trump himself, includes a link to his joint fundraising committee Save America, which also raises money for other Republican political initiatives.
