Mark Zuckerberg Dodges Questions About Secret Trump Meeting at White House: ‘Um…’

Facebook bans Tory ad that used footage of BBC's Laura Kuenssberg

The White Home assembly got here amid Zuckerberg's testifying on Capitol Hill in regards to the platform's new cryptocurrency, Libra, and as Fb confronted anti-trust investigations over its dominance of the social-media market.

The BBC asked the Tories to take the ad down, only to be rebuffed.
