Russia Used Facebook Sought To Stress Over Muslims and Black Lives Matter

After details of ad contents emerged Tuesday, confirming that some championed Trump and some criticized Hillary Clinton, the president took to Twitter Inc (NYSE: TWTR) to intimate a setup and spin a new conspiracy.

Clearly aware of the news Facebook is handing over to Congress and Special Counsel Robert Mueller 3000 ads bought by Russian Federation to help him win the White House, President Donald Trump Wednesday morning struck back. It is also suspected that these Russian actors had an impact on the results of the elections, and if not, then they had vast influence.

"The networks were always anti-Trump", Trump said on Twitter, leveling the same charge against the New York Times and the Washington Post.

Regardless of the claim and distraction allegation, reports confirm that many ads touted Trump ━ but he wasn't the exclusive beneficiary.

Last month, Facebook announced it had found $150,000 worth of political ads that ran on fake accounts originating from Russia, even before there was a mention of a Russian propaganda group.

"Virtually no President has accomplished what we have accomplished in the first 9 months-and economy roaring", he added. Later on, Facebook said it will give the information to Congress.
