Business Insider reports:
In the three days after Trump’s impeachment inquiry was announced on Sep. 24, the Trump campaign spent $1 million on Facebook ads, many of which included false or misleading claims. One of these Trump ads even referred to Joe Biden as a ‘bitch’ — which violated Facebook’s ad policies against profanity and was taken down upon review, a source familiar with the matter told Business Insider.
The Trump campaign then revised the ad, updating it to include a debunked claim about Biden. It was accepted because Facebook does not submit ads from politicians for third-party fact checking. The ad, which ran on Facebook in a few different variations, claimed that “Joe Biden promised Ukraine $1 billion dollars if they fired the prosecutor investigating his son’s company,” according to Facebook’s ads library.
