Pete Buttigieg was Facebook's 287th user. Now he says the company has too much power

Sen. Bernie Sanders: "We are living in an era of monopolies that dominate every aspect of our lives -- including our government. It's time to take that power back."

Voiced concerns about it:

Sen. Cory Booker: "I don't think that a president should be running around pointing at companies and saying breaking them up without any kind of process here. It's not me and my own personal opinion about going after folks. That sounds more like a Donald Trump thing to say, 'I'm going to break up you guys.'"

Former Rep. Beto O'Rourke: "I'm not sure if having five more Facebooks -- if you broke up Facebook into five component parts, or any of these other large social media or technology companies -- makes as much sense as regulating them."
