The report says that “I Love America” was founded in 2017 as a Patriotic group, but in recent weeks it actively promotes the content, campaigning for US President Donald trump.

The problem of control of political pages for Americans, by foreigners is a regular to Facebook. Businessmen from Macedonia for several months ran the page “Vets for Trump” in Facebook after one of them hacked her. It took about six months to restore the rights of these administrators – who were actually veterans, supporting the President trump to regain control of the page.
But the page “I Love America” is not one of a kind. There is a whole network pages in Facebook, which is run by people from Ukraine. In linked groups, mainly post memes about patriotism, Jesus, and cute dogs, while promoting the figure of the tramp in social networks. These were pages called “I love Jesus forever” and “God bless Donald trump and God bless America.”
