President Donald Trump and his political action committee spent $274,000 on Facebook ads since early May, making him the social network's biggest political advertiser. The amount spent is far higher than the runner-up spender, Planned Parenthood Federation of America, which put a little more than $188,000 into ads in the same timeframe, reported The New York Times. The numbers were laid out by a New York University [Tandon School of Engineering] research team, which studied 267,000 Facebook ads with political content after the social media giant started archiving them in May.
