Facebook takes down Donald Trump ads over 'organised hate' policy

Facebook Inc (FB.O) said on Thursday it took down posts and ads run by the re-election campaign of US President Donald Trump for violating its policy against organized hate.

  The ads showed a red inverted triangle, a symbol the Nazis used to identify political prisoners, with text asking Facebook users to sign a petition against antifa, a loosely organized anti-fascist movement.   Trump and Attorney General William Barr have repeatedly singled out antifa as a major instigator of recent unrest during nationwide anti-racism.
