Facebook founder Mark Zuckerberg has dismissed comments made by Donald Trump that the site has always been against him. The US president accused the social network of "collusion" on Twitter, branding it "anti-Trump".

Zuckerberg has been on the defensive for weeks over revelations that Russian agents bought ads on Facebook and created fake accounts to inflame political tensions in the United States ahead of the 2016 presidential vote. 

Earlier on Wednesday, Trump’s tweet criticised Facebook as “anti-Trump” and suggested the company could have colluded with other media outlets that opposed him.

In a Facebook post on Wednesday Zuckerberg said both President Trump and liberals were upset about ideas and content on Facebook during the campaign. “That’s what running a platform for all ideas looks like,” Mark Zuckerberg said on Wednesday. 

In a Facebook post responding to President Trump's criticism, CEO Mark Zuckerberg said he was striving to make "a platform for all ideas". He said that aside from "problematic ads", Facebook's impact ranged from "giving people a voice, to enabling candidates to communicate directly, to helping millions of people vote".

He promised Facebook would "continue to build a community for all people" - and to "defend against nation states attempting to spread misinformation and subvert elections".

Zuckerberg's response attracted 65,000 "likes" within two hours of being posted. However, US intelligence agencies have concluded Moscow tried to sway the vote in favour of Mr Trump. Congressional committees and an FBI inquiry are currently probing the matter, although Russia has denied meddling with the US election.
