President Donald Trump responded to failed former presidential candidate Hillary Clinton’s accusations against Facebook for allowing Russia to buy ads in the 2016 presidential election.

“The Russia hoax continues, now it’s ads on Facebook,” Trump wrote. “What about the totally biased and dishonest Media coverage in favor of Crooked Hillary?”

The president was responding to the news that Mark Zuckerberg turned over information about Facebook ads purchased by Russia, as they tried to influence the election.

But Trump reminded Clinton that she had plenty of actors trying to swing the election to her favor.

“The greatest influence over our election was the Fake News Media ‘screaming’ for Crooked Hillary Clinton,” he wrote. “Next, she was a bad candidate!”
