Zuckerberg explained why Facebook has not deleted the post trump about the protests in Minneapolis

CEO of Facebook mark Zuckerberg explainedwhy his company will not take any action in respect of posts in which the US President Donald trump has threatened that “looting in Minneapolis will lead to a shooting.”

“I know that many are upset that we left the posts of President… We carefully looked at the post in which they discussed the protests in Minnesota, to assess whether it violates our policy. Although the post was disturbing historical information, we decided to leave it because of the reference to the National guard meant that we see this as a warning about the actions of the state, and we think people should know whether the government planned to use force”, – he wrote.

Zuckerberg said that Facebook’s policy in relation to incitement to violence allows to discuss the question of the use of force by the state.

“Later, the President published a report stating that the original message was a warning that a robbery can lead to violence. We decided that this post, which obviously prevents the violence, also does not violate our policies and are important to people”, – said the head of Facebook .

He noted that unlike Twitter, Facebook has no policy of placing warning messages before messages that could provoke violence. Zuckerberg explained that in accordance with the policies of his social network, if a message provokes violence, it should be deleted regardless of whether it deserves publication, even if it is written by a politician.

He also noted that he had contacted the White house to explain the policy of the social network.

“I strongly disagree with how the President has talked about this (the protests in Minneapolis), but I believe that people should be able to see for yourself,” concluded Zuckerberg.
