Zucker­berg fires back at Trump over Face­book barb

Swazi Observer - - NEWS -

SAN FRANCISCO - Face­book chief Mark Zucker­berg fired back at US Pres­i­dent Don­ald Trump on Wed­nes­day after he ac­cused the lead­ing so­cial net­work of be­ing "al­ways anti-Trump".

Zucker­berg re­jected the no­tion, coun­ter­ing that Face­book is work­ing to en­sure "free and fair elec­tions" with an on­line plat­form that does not favour one side over an­other.

Zucker­berg's post at Face­book came after Trump ac­cused the so­cial net­work of bias in a morn­ing tweet that read:

"Face­book was al­ways anti-Trump. The Net­works were al­ways anti-Trump hence, Fake News, @ny­times (apol­o­gised) & @WaPo were anti-Trump. Col­lu­sion?"

Early morn­ing Twit­ter tizzies have be­come a hall­mark of Trump's pres­i­dency.

"Trump says Face­book is against him. Lib­er­als say we helped Trump," Zucker­berg said in his post.

"Both sides are up­set about ideas and con­tent they don't like. That's what run­ning a plat­form for all ideas looks like." AFP
