Facebook removes trump ad

Facebook took down ads from the Trump campaign on Thursday for violating its policies against "organized hate."

The ads encouraged supporters to back Trump on his call to declare "antifa," which stands for anti-fascist, as a terrorist organization. The ads features a photo of an upside-down red triangle, a symbol activists say Nazis once used to mark political prisoners in concentration camps.

Facebook's ad library shows that the ads, paid for by the Trump campaign's fundraising committee, first started running on the platform on Wednesday. The ads blame "Dangerous MOBS of far-left groups" for "DESTROYING our cities and rioting," and featured a link to a petition for people to show their backing of Trump. Two other ads — which have used the same wording but don't include the photo of the red triangle — remain active on Facebook.
