Billionaire and far-Left Democrat George Soros is zeroing in on Facebook CEO Mark Zuckerberg as well as COO Sheryl Sandberg, accusing them of electing President Donald Trump in 2016 while calling for their removal.
Soros went as far to say that Zuckerberg and Sandberg have a "mutual assistance arrangement" with President Trump that will "help him get re-elected."
Check out what the Daily Mail reported:
George Soros has called for Mark Zuckerberg to be removed from Facebook because he thinks he is 'helping Trump get re-elected' by not censoring or banning political ads.
Soros, a prolific billionaire Democrat donor, wrote a letter to The Financial Times on Monday calling on both Zuckerberg and Sheryl Sandberg to step down.
He has accused them of having a 'mutual assistance arrangement' with Trump that will 'help him get re-elected'.
Soros was responding to an article Zuckerberg wrote himself last week which appeared in the Financial Times.
In it, the Facebook CEO said that he was committed to having regulation over political ads on the social network and that he would implement it when the government set the rules.
Soros released a piece of his own where he hammered the Facebook team. "Mark Zuckerberg should stop obfuscating the facts by piously arguing for government regulation," Soros whined.
"Mr Zuckerberg appears to be engaged in some kind of mutual assistance arrangement with Donald Trump that will help him to get re-elected," Soros said with no evidence.
"Facebook does not need to wait for government regulations to stop accepting any political advertising in 2020 until after the elections on November 4," he complained.
Check out his entire piece below:
Mark Zuckerberg should stop obfuscating the facts by piously arguing for government regulation (“We need more regulation of Big Tech”, February 17).
Mr Zuckerberg appears to be engaged in some kind of mutual assistance arrangement with Donald Trump that will help him to get re-elected. Facebook does not need to wait for government regulations to stop accepting any political advertising in 2020 until after the elections on November 4. If there is any doubt whether an ad is political, it should err on the side of caution and refuse to publish. It is unlikely that Facebook will follow this course.
Therefore, I repeat my proposal, Mark Zuckerberg and Sheryl Sandberg should be removed from control of Facebook. (It goes without saying that I support government regulation of social media platforms.) George Soros Paris, France
