SILICON VALLEY — Facebook CEO Mark Zuckerberg said on Saturday that he believes it was “extremely unlikely” that news hoaxes on Facebook changed the outcome of this election, while Donald Trump claimed the platform helped him win the presidency.

Critics recently blasted Facebook’s “fake news” problem as influential on the outcome of the election. Zuckerberg initially addressed the issue on Thursday at the Techonomy conference in Half Moon Bay, California, dismissing the idea as unlikely.
