Soros points to the fact that in 2016 Facebook provided the Trump campaign with embedded staff to optimize the campaigns advertising programs, the Clinton campaign was also offered this opportunity but denied it. Soros also points to Zuckerberg’s meeting with President Trump in September 2019 as evidence of a close relationship between the two, Facebook’s refusal to fact-check political advertising is also singled out as proof of Trump and Zuckerberg working together. Soros writes:
In his letter to the Financial Times, Soros stated that: “Facebook does not need to wait for government regulations to stop accepting any political advertising in 2020 until after the elections on 4 November.”
He added: “I repeat my proposal, Mark Zuckerberg and Sheryl Sandberg should be removed from control of Facebook.” He further stated that he supports government regulation of social media platforms and thinks that Zuckerberg is “obfuscating the facts” in his arguments in order to have greater control over the internet.
