Facebook announced on Friday the appointment of former UK deputy prime minister Nick Clegg as its new VP for global affairs and communications.




Clegg has expressed virulent opposition to US President Donald Trump, joining a demonstration against Trump when he visited the UK in July.




Clegg's public views about Trump come after the president has attacked Google and other tech firms over what he sees as a liberal bias.



Facebook produced a surprise on Friday when it announced former UK deputy prime minister Nick Clegg as its new VP for global affairs and communications.
Clegg was leader of centrist party the Liberal Democrats and served alongside Prime Minister David Cameron in Britain's coalition government between 2010 and 2015.
As a heavyweight politician who has spent years in the public eye, his views on many subjects are well known. This means he carries a certain amount of baggage with him as he starts his new role at Facebook next Monday.
