President Donald Trump Friday took to Twitter to complain that the "Russia hoax continues," about Facebook's ad policies, and then took a swipe at the media over its coverage of "Crooked Hillary" Clinton.

Trump's tweet comes after Facebook CEO Mark Zuckerberg released a video Thursday pledging to make the political advertising on its platform more "transparent."

"I don't want anyone to use our tools to undermine democracy," Zuckerberg said in a Facebook video and wrote in an accompanying post. "That's not what we stand for."

Story continues below video.

The company, following pressure from the public and members of Congress, has agreed to provide contents of 3,000 advertisements bought by a Russian agency to congressional investigators.

The company disclosed the ads earlier this month, and already has handed them over to Robert Mueller, the special counsel investigating Russian interference in the 2016 presidential race.

Clinton, Trump's Democratic rival in that race, is back in the public eye again following the release of her latest memoir, "What Happened," which details her experience as her party's nominee in the presidential race.

She has appeared in several media interviews about her book and the race in recent weeks. Trump's media complaints, however, and the "Crooked Hillary" nickname both date back to the campaign.
