Mark Zuckerberg and Donald Trump

Donald Trump called for a ban on Muslims entering the USA earlier this week – and everyone’s pretty mad about it.

Mark Zuckerberg has offered his support to the world’s Muslim community in the wake of the Trump fiasco.

The Facebook CEO has pledged to ‘protect [the] rights’ of Muslims using his social network, writing in a post on his Facebook profile.

Trump, an American business magnate and Republican presidential candidate, hit headlines this week after calling for a complete ban on Muslims entering the United States.

The politician made the comments in response to the 2015 San Bernardino shooting, and has been the target of widespread backlash as a result, including from UK Prime Minister David Cameron.

It's not clear what specific action Zuckerberg plans to take regarding the rights of Muslims on Facebook, but the founder does rank as a formidable Trump adversary.

Facebook currently serves over 1.5 billion monthly active users worldwide, and tops the list of most popular social networks to date.
