Facebook Makes Announcement About Donald Trump

According to an internal memo sent Tuesday to staffers, 45th President Donald J. Trump will not be fact-checked by Facebook (Meta). Politicians are exempt from the process, according to CNN. Tuesday, Trump kicked off his 2024 run for the presidency, telling supporters at his Mar-a-Lago estate, “America’s comeback starts right now.”

“We will win because we will fight with every measure of our strength and every ounce of our energy,” Trump told the crowd.

Newsmax reports:

Although Trump’s Facebook account has been suspended, the fact-check ban also applies to anything he says that’s posted to the platform by others.

“Team Trump,” a page run by the former president’s political group, remains active on the platform and has 2.3 million followers.

“Some of you have reached out seeking guidance regarding fact-checking political speech in anticipation of a potential candidacy announcement from former President Trump,” a manager on Meta’s “news integrity partnership” team emailed fact-checkers on Tuesday before Trump’s announcement.

The memo noted that “political speech is ineligible for fact-checking. This includes the words a politician says as well as photo, video, or other content that is clearly labeled as created by the politician or their campaign.”

According to Meta’s policy, candidates must register with the Federal Election Commission (FEC), which Trump has done to seek the high office a third time.

I agree with Judy. Facebook must have some other play up their sleeve. There’s no way that an important arm of the democrat party would just give away one of their most effective plays . . .

We will see. Facebook does things when large money gets waved under it’s nose.
