facebook women for trump

The Women for Trump Facebook group was set up as a voice for women who “are fed up with loser politicians who won’t stand up for our freedom or for the USA.”

The WFT Facebook page currently has 27,000 followers and is one of the most popular Trump fan pages.

Today the Women for Trump Facebook page organizer received this warning from Facebook.

The message said Facebook “has received many reports from your page” and to, “Please review your posts for reasons that you have violated our terms.”

Facebook then threatens to suspend the page—
facebook warning

We spoke to the page administrator today.
She said it may be this post on Islam from a FOX Business Network segment that was put up earlier today.

This is the only post they can think of that could possibly be offensive?
And it was a video from a cable news show.
Now the page is being threatened with suspension.

UPDATE: This came from an IT professional:

I researched the suspension notice you posted an article about. This may be a spear phishing attack. The domain is registered to a proxy registration service in Panama, and leads to a server containing nothing but the attack form… I posted a warning on the Facebook page itself. This is a time sensitive matter, please contact them.

UPDATE: Brooke from Facebook wrote us with this statement.

Here is what we’re sending to media outlets who are requesting comment. Please feel free to use it in your update!

“After looking into this matter, Facebook was able to determine that the page administrator received this message as part of a phishing attempt. The message did not come from Facebook.”
