Trump campaign running hundreds of new ads that violate Facebook's rules

https://popular.info/p/trump-campaign-running-hundreds-of?token=eyJ1c2VyX2lkIjo4MDU5NjcsInBvc3RfaWQiOjUyNjUwLCJfIjoidU0wWHoiLCJpYXQiOjE1NTYyMTM4MDQsImV4cCI6MTU1NjIxNzQwNCwiaXNzIjoicHViLTE2NjQiLCJzdWIiOiJwb3N0LXJlYWN0aW9uIn0.IyJBbBBrq8Uxo0y1QlyF1r9nJVpOwIXq6sr7XFGFkRg

Facebook does not seem to be doing anything to stop them.

Melania Trump’s birthday is April 26. For weeks, the Trump campaign has used the First Lady’s big day — she’ll be 49 — to build their email list. They’ve run thousands of ads urging Facebook users to sign a “card to wish Melania a Happy Birthday!”

But today the Trump campaign is doing something different. It has produced hundreds of ads targeting women in practically every city in Texas.

These ads, accessible through the Facebook political ad library, go on and on and on. The campaign appears to be leaning on Melania to bolster Trump’s low support with women. Focusing on Texas, which some Democrats believe is the next swing state, is also an interesting choice.

But these ads also explicitly violate Facebook’s ad guidelines because they include “prohibited content.” Facebook’s rules prohibit ads that reference the “personal attributes” of the people being targeted.

“Ads must not contain content that asserts or implies personal attributes” Facebook’s rules state, including “direct or indirect assertions or implications about a person’s… gender identity.” The phrase “Attention Ladies” at the beginning of each of these ads violates the guidelines.

1. Headline should be: "Facebook violates its own rules to profit from business with Trump"

or something similar. All of these social media platforms discard their TOS when it comes to making money. TOS are for the peons and plebs only.

5. I wish someone would hack the Malignia ad

and perhaps tack on some photos from her "modelling" career.
