  • Facebook, Russia and the US elections – what you need to know

Facebook has been under scrutiny with critics alleging that Russia-linked advertisements on the social media site attempted to boost Trump's candidacy, particularly by attacking his general election rival Hillary Clinton.

Trump, however, put a positive spin on his time in office so far in a follow-up tweet.

U.S. Representative Adam Schiff, the top Democrat on the House Intelligence Committee, which is among those investigating Russia's role, said he expected to have the ads by next week and that they should be made public.

But some team owners spoke on this". "All Americans (are) granted rights (to) peaceful protests ", Earnhardt tweeted . More NFL players than ever protested the anthem before their Sunday games. "It's a big deal for us to honor America".

In his second tweet, trump mentioned that the people of the USA are pro-Trump as his administration has achieved a roaring economy in the first 9 months of his tenure. However, now it is believed that between $3,000 and $100,000 of those ads are linked to this group. His campaign has said it spent some $70 million on Facebook ads, and it also ran a live Facebook show.

House Science and Technology Committee Chairman Lamar Smith, a Texas Republican and climate change denier, asked the CEOs of the technology companies to turn over documents by October 10 that detail the involvement of Russian-based or funded entities detected on their platforms, information on ads they purchased, and any communications concerning ads advocating for "so-called green initiatives".

Clearly aware of the news Facebook is handing over to Congress and Special Counsel Robert Mueller 3000 ads bought by Russian Federation to help him win the White House, President Donald Trump Wednesday morning struck back. A long time after that, Facebook revealed that it shared the information on ads with Mr. Mueller and his team.
