Mark Zuckerberg is setting a "dangerous precedent" by allowing a post by Donald Trump to remain on Facebook, a group of civil rights leaders has warned.

Axar.az reports citing foreign media.

Their statement followed a video call with the social media giant's founder.

The US president's post, about the widespread protests following the death of George Floyd, was hidden by Twitter last week for "glorifying violence".

Facebook staff also voiced their anger at their employer, with some staging a "virtual walkout".

In the post, the president wrote he would "send in the National Guard", and warned that "when the looting starts, the shooting starts".

Mr Trump shared the same message on Twitter, where it was hidden behind a warning label, prompting an escalating row between Twitter and the White House.
