Facebook bans pro-Trump PAC from advertising

Committee to defend the President

Facebook is banning ads from the Committee to Defend the President, a pro-Trump super PAC, a spokesperson for the platform told The Hill on Thursday.

“As a result of the Committee to Defend the President’s repeated sharing of content determined by third-party fact-checkers to be false, they will not be permitted to advertise for a period of time on our platform," Andy Stone said in a statement.

Facebook declined to comment on how long the advertising ban, first reported by CNN, will last.

The Committee to Defend the President has come under criticism from Democrats who have accused it of misrepresenting and twisting words.
