Trump's VP pick J.D. Vance supports FTC chair's approach to antitrust

J.D. Vance, running as former President Donald Trump's VP candidate, has publicly supported Federal Trade Commission Chair Lina Khan's robust stance on antitrust enforcement.

The endorsement indicates potential policy directions regarding antitrust enforcement in a possible second Trump administration, highlighting internal debates within the conservative movement about the scope and aims of regulatory bodies like the FTC.

The regulators have launched a call for information from stakeholders which remains open until September 13.
