‘There is no hidden deal between me and President Donald Trump’, says Facebook CEO Mark Zuckerberg.
Lately, there has been a lot of hate speech on Facebook. Some brands argue that the company has not taken any measures to challenge such activity. This is the reason why the platform ‘Facebook’ has seen an increasing number of boycotts.
A Secret Deal Between the President and Facebook?
President Donald Trump’s post on Facebook was left unchecked by the company. In disparity to Twitter, which has added labels to the Donald Trump tweets.
Facebook CEO Mark Zuckerberg told Axios, ‘I have heard this gossip, too, so let me be clear: There is no deal of any kind’.
He added, ‘Actually, the entire idea of a deal is quite absurd.’
Mark Zuckerberg also said, ‘I do communicate with the leader from time to time. Just like I spoke with our previous president and political leaders around the world.’
People think that the biggest social media platform ‘Facebook’ is too supportive. Or is close in some way to the Trump administration.
There were some issues from the president side to which Mark Zuckerberg disagreed. The issues were regarding immigration policies, the withdrawal from the Paris agreement, as well as his divisive and inflammatory rhetoric.
The Truth Behind the Deal
In 2016, Mark Zuckerberg met with 16 projecting fundamentalists. It included Fox News’ Tucker Carlson, to ease worries the company was biased against conservatives.
In 2019, it was pointed out that both persons worked under President Bush. It included the company’s vice-president of international public policy at Facebook, which handles Facebook’s connection with global policymakers. Also, the vice-president of the US public policy and former chairman Kevin Martin.
The social media platform ‘Facebook’ was suspected of wasting huge sums of money on a closed-door appeal attack with Republican lawmakers.
Also, 100 Facebook accounts that were connected to Roger Stone were removed by the social media platform. They were removed after they were found to be fake roles and a far-right group that was banned from the site in 2018.
‘Facebook’ and ‘Instagram’ also took down accounts related to the embarrassed previous consultant to President Donald Trump and the Proud Boys.
Throughout the 2016 movement, a veteran Republican worker with a tattoo of Richard Nixon on his back, Stone, aided as an adviser to Donald Trump. He was charged with working together with ‘Wikileaks’ to dishonor ‘Hilary Clinton’ in the build-up to that election.
According to CNN, the system of social media accounts and pages spent more than $300,000 (£237,816) between them on ads to promote posts.
Mr. Donald Trump is thinking to pardon Stone, say sources. Stone also pleaded Mr. Trump to do announce it on Tuesday.
