Facebook decides to take down Trump 2020 campaign's 'census' ads
Facebook Inc on Thursday removed ads by President Donald Trump’s re-election campaign that asked users to fill out an “Official 2020 Congressional District Census” because the ads violate the company’s policy against misinformation on the government’s census. The ads, which come from the pages of the Republican president and Vice President Mike Pence, link to a survey on an official campaign website and then to a page asking for donations.

This Citizens’ Report, or Summary of Performance and Financial Information, complements the Agency Financial Report (AFR) for Fiscal Year (FY) 2015 that was published in November 2015. It presents a summary of the Department of the Treasury’s (Treasury or the Department) financial information relative to its vital mission and the stewardship of the resources entrusted to us. Like the AFR, it also highlights Treasury’s priorities, accomplishments, and challenges in implementing programs to promote conditions that enable economic growth and stability at home and abroad, protect the integrity of the financial system, and effectively manage the U.S. Government’s finances and resources. Throughout its rich history, Treasury’s core mission has not changed. Today, with approximately 100,000 employees in its ranks, Treasury remains the steward of the U.S. economy — taking in revenue, meeting financial obligations, and, when appropriate, borrowing and investing public funds. In recent years, Treasury’s role expanded to include being a leader in safeguarding and growing the nation’s economy. For FY 2015, Treasury used the alternative approach identified in the Office of Management and Budget’s (OMB) Circular A-136 to produce its Performance and Accountability Reports, which consists of three reports.
