Social media giants are already working to destroy the success of the upcoming conservative American Priority Conference 2019 set for October. Facebook has denied the organizers the right to post its paid ads for the event on the social media platform.
Organizers of the conference posted a note to Twitter to inform supporters that the social media giant has denied the group its ads.
“We applied for and were denied advertising on Facebook,” the conference noted on its Twitter account.
“We are approved for political advertising, but FB won’t let us run an ad for the event,” the group said.

The conference was recently set for October 10-12 to be held at the Trump National Doral in Miami, Florida.
The event will feature an interesting array of activities, according to the conference website:
American Priority is going to continue our efforts to support Free Speech and Free Association while also highlighting American Culture. We have many new plans for this year that are going to make for a great Festival and Conference. Your voice was heard from last year, and we will be bringing more American Culture and have longer panels to give time, to really get into issues and allow for more Q&A.
We are planning several fundraisers at our Festival, a Golf Tournament with special guests to raise funds for a charity to be determined, a Texas Hold’em tournament as well as a silent auction for a local Breast Cancer Foundation. Special events are also scheduled such as a VIP Yacht Party in Miami Port, a Pool Party, Live Music, and much more.
The growing list of speakers features some of the biggest names on the right and includes former White House Press Secretary Sarah Sanders, author Dinesh D’Souza, Turning Point USA founder Charlie Kirk, Yippy CEO Rich Granville, and author David Wolfe. Conservative talk show host Bill Mitchell of YourVoice America will also be in attendance on radio row.
Indeed, the event is notable because it will be the first time that former White House Press Secretary Sarah Sanders will speak in public since she stepped down from the White House.
Those interested in attending the conference should visit the conference website. Registration is now open for the October 10th through the 12th event.
