The Clinton campaign is accusing Facebook of favoring Donald Trump but that’s not what happened at all.
Speaking to the Wall Street Journal, Barnes, a lifelong Republican now turned democrat, revealed how he helped the Trump campaign leverage some of Facebook’s most powerful tools and products to extend their reach.

But, it seems, the lack of attention Clinton got on social media was Clinton’s fault, not Facebook’s.
The Wall Street Journal reported Saturday that a key figure in President Donald Trump’s 2016 social media strategy has now “jumped ship” and is helping organizations looking to remove the President from power.
Buried deep in the story, critics claim, is evidence that Facebook provided Trump’s operations with consultants, helped them understand the platform’s ads system, and use the system to maximize their ads’ visibility. As a result, “every dollar that the Trump campaign spent on [Facebook] ads yielded $2 to $3 in fundraising dollars.”
The Daily Beast’s editor, Noah Shachtman even claimed that the “stunning story” “shows how Facebook worked overtime for Trump – crafting digital strategy, creating custom code, and experimenting with different ways to maximize pro-Donald content.”
Ultimately, Trump ended up spending around $44 million targeting users on Facebook with fundraising ads. More
Hillary Clinton is literally a pathetic loser.

Facebook did not elect Donald Trump. Trump got elected because we the people wanted him to be our president. Plus people hated Hillary Clinton with a passion and they will hate whomever Democrats put up next too.

Just another entity to blame! Wake up and smell the coffee burning! The American people didn’t want you as president!
