PENAmerica is suing Donald Trump over certain acts that he has taken as President and comments that he has made while in office that PEN alleges that have "violated the First Amendment and his oath to uphold the Constitution." Among them are Trump's comments indicating his unhappiness with Amazon and Washington Post owner Jeff Bezos and his threat to bring an antitrust action against Bezos.
