Mark Zuckerberg was already making waves with his thinly veiled attack on Donald Trump’s intention to build a wall to prevent the stream of illegal aliens from entering the country through its southern border. In a recent speech he said,
‘As I look around and I travel around the world, I’m starting to see people and nations turning inward, against this idea of a connected world and a global community,’ he said.
‘I hear fearful voices calling for building walls and distancing people they label as others. For blocking free expression, for slowing immigration, reducing trade, and in some cases around the world even cutting access to the internet.
Many were up in arms about the hypocritical nature of the comment when he has in fact turned his San Francisco home into a compound. According to the San Francisco Chronicle, Zuckerberg secured ten separate building permits so that an estimated 40 to 50 contractors could build out everything from roof decks to a basement garage, featuring a car turntable so his fleet of vehicles “can get in and out more easily.” And the CEO—ever conscious of people’s privacy—had a massive mesh net fence erected around the property.
Now, an internal Facebook poll has come to light asking what responsibility Facebook has to prevent Trump from becoming president in 2017.
Gizmodo published a screenshot Friday of an internal poll that Facebook employees were purportedly using to decide what questions to ask CEO Mark Zuckerberg at a meeting in March.
A spokesperson for Facebook says it cannot confirm or deny leaks but bristled at the suggestion it would seek to help or hinder any political candidate.
