Trump says Mark Zuckerberg told him he’s Facebook’s ‘number one’
“I had dinner with Mark Zuckerberg the other day and he said ‘I’d like to congratulate you … you are number one on Facebook,’ ” Trump said.
The president, speaking in a live interview with right-wing radio talk show host Rush Limbaugh, did not specify when the dinner happened.
A spokesman for Facebook said the last such dinner took place in October.
Trump, who has nearly 70 million followers on Twitter, told Limbaugh that without the platform, “I think we’d be lost.”
“We wouldn’t be able to get the truth out,” he said.
Both those platforms have responded by saying they will not attempt to weed out lies from politicians because their statements fall under the category of “newsworthy” content.
Trump is number one on Facebook in terms of political ad spending, leading to accusations that the company is unduly influenced by the Republican.
“What did they talk about?” Warren tweeted.
