Facebook founder/CEO Mark Zuckerberg enjoyed an Iftar dinner -- the fast-breaking Muslim meal during Ramadan -- with a group of Somali refugees Thursday in Minneapolis. 

The 33-year-old tech wizard shared his experience via Google Plus. JK, here's his Facebook post: 

In a possibly related move, Zuckerberg also unveiled Facebook's new mission statement yesterday: "To give people the power to build community and bring the world closer together."

Last August, then-candidate Donald Trump popped into Minneapolis to say Minnesota is experiencing "tremendous problems" with immigrants from Somalia. "You can be smart and you can be cunning and tough, or you can be very, very dumb," he said, perhaps alluding to his proposed travel ban, the disputed legality of which appears headed for the Supreme Court. Somalia is among the seven majority-Muslim countries that would be impacted by the ban. 

Zuckerberg addressed concerns that his social network helped spread fake news, and ultimately swayed the U.S. presidential election, in a post last November.

Facebook, which averages 1.9 billion monthly users, raked in $8 billion in revenue last quarter. In a rare interview with CNN TechZuckerberg reported his dorm-launched company is "doing OK."
