Today's Trump Fail: FB removes Trump campaign literature featuring Nazi symbol

THIS is why Biden will be president. Because Team Trump can't read a calendar (Juneteenth fiasco) and now they won't check on the symbols their base loves. 

 

Facebook on Thursday removed content and political ads run by President Donald Trump’s reelection campaign that featured a symbol that the Nazis used in the World War II era to identify certain prisoners in concentration camps.

The red inverted triangle included in the material by "Team Trump" once marked political dissidents like Communists and Social Democrats, and a variation was used to label Jewish political prisoners. The posts and ads were removed for violating Facebook’s policy against organized hate, a company spokesperson confirmed Thursday afternoon, which "prohibits using a banned hate group's symbol to identify political prisoners without the context that condemns or discusses the symbol," he said.

I have a feeling that tRump will go on a Twitter rampage tonight.  Perhaps they will be flagged as hate speech ?

@Richva  It was about time, the   amount of Criticism that FB has received for simply not taking care of all the fake news they allow in FB. Morning Joe really called them for what they are. hoping that it touched them.
