FCC chairman Ajit Pai is a Trump appointee and he followed the company line in having the Obama-era net neutrality rules wiped off the books. And the president considers the Justice Department to be his personal plaything, according to those inside the White House.

"I’m a longtime Trump hotel stayer, way before this transaction," said the executive. Speaking of which, Rep. Pramila Jayapal (D-WA) brought up the now famous Twitter fight that Legere had with Donald Trump back in 2015. The T-Mobile CEO was staying at a Trump property and complained about some noise outside of the hotel.
