No More Excuses: Tell Facebook to Close the Trump Ad Loophole
Trump may be off Facebook, but his ads are not.
Trump’s PAC — Team Trump — has been running ads on Facebook, even though the former president is suspended from using the platform for at least two years. In essence, Trump is exploiting a massive loophole — and Facebook needs to close it.
Facebook’s interpretation of Team Trump ads runs counter to campaign-finance laws. All communications disseminated by this PAC, established and controlled by Trump, are unquestionably in Trump’s voice.
Let’s be clear: It’s easy to exploit this loophole, which allows bad-faith actors like Trump to avoid playing by the rules — and Facebook to continue to profit from hate, racism, misogyny and disinformation.
Tell Facebook to enforce its own decisions and close the ad loophole.
