In an email accidentally sent to a BuzzFeed reporter, a Facebook spokesperson said the idea of a Muslim registry is a "straw man" -- a sham argument that misrepresents another's belief. Earlier this month, The Intercept asked nine tech companies if they would aide Trump in creating a Muslim registry. Facebook -- along with Google, Apple and IBM -- did not respond; Twitter was the only company to say no.
