An analysis from the Guardian published last month found that Trump spent around $20 million on hundreds of thousands of ads on Facebook, some of which were false, outspending all the Democratic candidates.

Despite a litany of criticism, Facebook continues to run political advertising on its platform, repeatedly stating that it should not litigate the legitimacy of claims made in campaign ads.

Their policy is in contrast to Twitter's ban on all political advertising, which was enacted last November, and Google's heightened restrictions on targeted political ads, which began in January. A letter signed by hundreds of Facebook employees to Zuckerberg opposing the company's policy was published in the New York Times last October.

An op-ed written by Zuckerberg — also published on Financial Times Sunday — was in support for greater regulation of "Big Tech," but expressed continued support for keeping political ads on the website. Soros wrote that Zuckerberg was intentionally "obfuscating the facts" in that piece.

He made it readily apparent, however, that he supports "government regulation of social media platforms."
