Facebook (FB) said Thursday it has removed ads by President Donald Trump's reelection campaign that broke the company's policy against "organized hate." The ads featured a marking once used by the Nazis to designate political prisoners in concentration camps ( /). "Our policy prohibits using a banned hate group's symbol to identify political prisoners without the context that condemns or discusses the symbol," Andy Stone, a Facebook spokesman, told the Washington Post.
