The Ads features symbol once used by Nazis

Mark Zuckerberg’s Facebook on Thursday took down US President Donald Trump’s campaign ads against Antifa that prominently featured a symbol used by Nazis to designate political prisoners , a spokesperson for the company confirmed to the Hill.

According to Andy Stone, the spokesperson “We removed these posts and ads from President Donald Trump reelection campaign that featured an upside down red triangle , a symbol that was once used by Nazis to identify political prisoners”

The ad appeared on the platform and in the post on the Team Trump Facebook page , with the massage, “Dangerous MOBS of far-left groups are running through our streets and causing absolute mayhem. They are destroying our cities and rioting … it’s absolute madness”

The Anti-defamation League’s Jonathan Greenblatt wrote on twitter that the “Nazis used red triangle to identify their political victims in concentration camps. using it to attack political opponents is highly offensive @POTUS campaign needs to learn its history, as ignorance is no excuse for suing Nazi-related symbols”

Facebook on their statement said “Our policy prohibits using a banned hate group’s symbol to identify political prisoners without the context that condemns or discusses the symbol”

Donald Trump’s first reaction “First thing the anarchist did upon taking over Seattle was ‘BUILD A WALL’- see ,I was ahead of our times !

However, just before taking down, the controversial ads on Team Trump’s page were seen as many 9,500,00 times before taking down.

Meanwhile, the most common symbol used to identify antifa is black and red flag inside a circle.
