Zuckerberg slams Trump in keynote speech with thinly-veiled dig at 'building walls' that he warns would reduce trade, stoke fear, and block free expression

It’s rich that Zuckerberg slams Trump for “blocking free expression” when Facebook specifically blocks FOTM’s gun control posts.

Via Daily Mail: Mark Zuckerberg took aim at Donald Trump in his keynote speech at Facebook’s F8 developer conference on Tuesday. Without naming the GOP frontrunner, the Facebook CEO slammed Trump’s plan to build a wall between the US and Mexico.
His thinly-veiled dig came during a speech about freedom of expression and immigration as he warned America risks cutting itself off from the world. ‘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.

Immigration, he told the audience in San Francisco’s Fort Mason center, fuels economic success. ‘Instead of building walls we can help build bridges,’ he added as he mentioned Facebook’s plans to launch a plane that will provide internet signal to disconnected parts of the world.
He concluded: ‘It takes courage to choose hope over fear. People will always call you naive but it’s this hope and this optimism thats behind every important step forward.’
Zuckerberg has not given his backing to any specific candidate, but this is not the first time he has hit out at Donald Trump.
In February, the president of Zuckerberg’s pro-immigration lobby group FWD.us, Todd Sculte, described Trump’s policies and ‘horrible and fatal’ in an interview with CNBC ahead of the Iowa caucus. ‘For the first time, a major party [is] putting forth people who are saying they are going to round up and deport 11.5 million people; they’re going to eliminate high-skilled immigration,’ Schulte said.  ‘And look, that may get you a win or second place in the Iowa caucuses. That is just a horrible and fatal position in a general election.’
He later tweeted: ‘Trump’s a hack, runs for [sic] policy specifics. Be it immigration, trade, foreign policy – answer is always he’s a strongman, others are weak. On immigration, he wandered into something awful that credentialed past apostasies as ok – rounding up every last undocumented immigrant.’
According to FEC records read by Inc, Zuckerberg received a reimbursement from Marco Rubio’s campaign after the Florida senator dropped out of the race. His words on Tuesday come just days before the New York primary, which Trump is expected to win easily.

So a guy who built a successful App is thus considered worth hearing on life and death policy issues? And what good did Zuckerberg’s invention bring to North Africa, the Middle East and Europe, where his “bridge building” platform has been used to help murdering jihadists organize revolution? We would do better to seek the advice of Kim Kardashian.

TD . . . That is a brilliant observation. I would say that anything that Zucker…. endorses, I would take the opposite stance. As a 1 percenter, he has everything to gain by the continuance of the enslaving of US citizens. All in the name of prospering himself and his family.

Reblogged this on Arlin Report and commented:
Zuck only sees and hears what he wants to hear. Trump never said he is opposed to immigration; just illegal immigration. I guess Zuckerberg is okay with breaking the law.

Left/liberal progressivism principles at their finest: It’s not what you do, it’s what you can do and make other people think someone else did that’s important! (Cool points for the most clever lie!)

This twit, that has never worked a real job in his life, has his head up in the clouds. His past comments and Nazi actions shows him to be anti-American.
So of course he is going to attack Mr. Trump every chance he gets. The one person that actually loves this country, that doesn’t need any bribe money, can’t be controlled and walks his own path. He has a major problem with people that love this country and thus Trump, who is all about America and making her better.
