Facebook CEO Mark Zuckerberg declared that Facebook would sue the federal government if Sen. Elizabeth Warren wins the 2020 presidential election and moves to break up the tech platform. 

According to an audio from two open meetings with Facebook employees, the Facebook founder discussed the possible threat to Facebook if Warrens wins the election, The Verge reported.

“If she gets elected president, then I would bet that we will have a legal challenge, and I would bet that we will win the legal challenge,” Zuckerberg said.

“And does that still suck for us? Yeah. I mean, I don’t want to have a major lawsuit against our own government.”

“But look, at the end of the day, if someone’s going to try to threaten something that existential, you go to the mat and you fight,” he added.

Warren, who is now a frontrunner for the 2020 Democratic presidential nomination, has criticized Facebook for engaging in monopolistic practices.

This year, the 2020 candidate released a detailed plan for how she would reign in Facebook's power.

“I want to make sure that the next generation of great American tech companies can flourish,” Warren wrote in a post on Medium unveiling her proposal.

To do that, we need to stop this generation of big tech companies from throwing around their political power to shape the rules in their favor and throwing around their economic power to snuff out or buy up every potential competitor."

But Zuckerberg stressed that breaking up big tech companies isn't the answer and is not “going to solve the issues.”

“It doesn't make election interference less likely,” he said, according to the leaked audio.

“It makes it more likely because now the companies can't coordinate and work together."

Warren responded to Zuckerberg on Twitter, stating she was not afraid to hold Silicon Valley’s most prominent players accountable.

“What would really ‘suck’ is if we don’t fix a corrupt system that lets giant companies like Facebook engage in illegal anti-competitive practices, stomp on consumer privacy rights, and repeatedly fumble their responsibility to protect our democracy,” she tweeted.

Facebook came under increased pressure by federal regulators and lawmakers to improve transparency and remove misleading content and fake news.

In July, Facebook was slapped with a $5 billion fine over privacy violations under the new terms of a historical Federal Trade Commission settlement imposed for privacy violations.

According to Reuters and the Wall Street Journal, the settlement includes “government restrictions on how Facebook treats user privacy,” but there are no indications of what those restrictions might be.

The FTC narrowly approved the fine in a vote that came down along party lines.
