In the lengthy response, Zuckerberg said while Trump accused Facebook of being against him, liberals have also accused Facebook of helping Trump.

"Both sides are upset about ideas and content they don't like. That's what running a platform for all ideas looks like," wrote Zuckerberg.

Zuckerberg also said Facebook ran "get out the vote" efforts that helped as many as two million people register to vote, which Zuckerberg claimed was bigger than similar efforts by Trump's campaign, and Hillary Clinton's campaign, combined.

"We will continue to work to build a community for all people. We will do our part to defend against nation states attempting to spread misinformation and subvert elections. We'll keep working to ensure the integrity of free and fair elections around the world, and to ensure our community is a platform for all ideas and force for good in democracy." wrote Zuckerberg.
