Trump Says Fake News Far More Troubling Than Russian Facebook Ads

Democrats continue to make a huge deal over nearly $100,000 worth of Facebook ads purchased by Russian sources. Somehow, that’s their proof of Russian interference and meddling with last year’s election and proof that they colluded with someone(s) in the Trump campaign.

Over the weekend, President Donald Trump took to Twitter, as if that’s a rare thing, to tweet that he believes the Fake News by a number of the mainstream media outlets, was far more troubling than the Russian-paid Facebook ads. He also pointed out that Facebook was very pro-Hillary Clinton and that she spent many more millions of dollars on the campaign than he did.

President Trump on Saturday downplayed the significance of Russian-bought Facebook ads, which leading lawmakers investigating election meddling have said were intended to influence last year’s campaign and divide Americans.

“Keep hearing about ‘tiny’ amount of money spent on Facebook ads,” Trump said on Twitter, before taking aim at U.S. television networks. “What about the billions of dollars of Fake News on CNN, ABC, NBC & CBS?”

Trump later wrote that Facebook was on the side of Democrat Hillary Clinton, not him. “Crooked Hillary Clinton spend hundreds of millions more on Presidential Election than I did,” Trump tweeted…

One thing the media seems to be ignoring is that Facebook COO Sheryl Sandberg admitted that Facebook made mistakes in selling the ads to the Russian company, especially since it had ties to the Kremlin. Twitter supposedly reported that they discovered Russian-bought campaign ads, but somehow those files were deleted.
