The American Edge Project released the following statement regarding President Biden’s “Executive Order on Promoting Competition in the American Economy”

“Today’s executive order is a troubling development for America’s domestic tech innovators as they work to facilitate broad economic growth on the heels of historic crises and fight on the front lines to help keep the internet open, accessible, and welcoming of free expression.

Moreover, the order threatens to compound the harmful consequences of the House’s antitrust package to handcuff America’s most innovative tech companies – and forfeit our country’s edge to foreign adversaries like China. Rather than doubling down on an approach that could undermine the future of American innovation, policymakers must work together to implement smart solutions that preserve America’s technological edge.”
