Donald Trump just found out this is the biggest threat to his re-election campaign
The Presidential election is less than 50 days away.
Time is running out and the polls in the battleground states are tightening.
But Donald Trump just found out this is the biggest threat to his re-election campaign.
More than 70 percent of Americans use Facebook and about 40 percent of Americans get their news from the social media giant.
Political actors on both sides see a potentially massive audience and want to use Facebook to get their message out.
In 2016, some experts credited the Trump campaign’s expert use of Facebook and other digital platforms for playing a large role in Trump’s victory.
Since 2020 is all about the Left doing everything in their power to prevent Trump from winning again, that means leveraging the left-wing moguls who run tech companies to censor the President and his allies’ speeches.
That happens by tech companies using left-wing fact checkers to issue partisan “fact checks” against conservative ads and then banning them from their platform.
The pro-Trump Super PAC, America First Action, was banned for an ad they ran using a quote from Biden at a campaign rally telling a man his taxes would go up to attack Biden’s tax plan for raising taxes on all Americans.
Facebook banned the ad after a “fact check” from the left-wing Politifact ruled the ad mostly false.
Politifact handed down this ruling despite their own “fact check” admitting that some independent analysts found that Biden’s plan would raise taxes on all Americans.
But Politifact ruled the ad false because Biden’s plan would raise taxes more on upper income earners as opposed to Americans at the bottom end of the income scale.
A new ad from a pro-Trump super PAC uses out-of-context footage of Joe Biden to claim that the former vice president wants to raise taxes for Americans across the board.
Versions of the ad from America First Action began airing Aug. 4 on Facebook and on TV screens in Wisconsin and North Carolina. They focus largely on a comment Biden made in response to a voter during a February campaign stop in South Carolina.
But the America First Action ad presents that remark out of context. And while some tax experts estimate that Biden’s plan would mean higher taxes on average for all income groups, those increases would be relatively small for all but the biggest earners.
Facebook used this fact – even though the ad never claimed who would pay more – to censor the ad.
This part of the Left’s effort to rig the 2020 election by suppressing any criticism of the Democrats and only allowing stories and ads that attack Donald Trump to break through.
