Facebook Removes Video Of Donald Trump Interview As He Remains ‘Blocked’ From Platform

Facebook has removed a video of a new Donald Trump interview from his daughter-in-law’s page on the platform. 

Lara Trump, who is married to the former president’s son Eric, recently joined Fox News as a contributor and interviewed him for a segment on The Right View.

However, when she uploaded the footage it was swiftly deleted and she received an email saying ‘content posted in the voice of Donald Trump’ is no longer allowed on the site.

Outraged, Lara shared a screenshot of the message on Instagram.

It read: “We are reaching out to let you know that we removed content from Lara Trump’s Facebook page that featured President Trump speaking.

“In line with the block we placed on Donald Trump’s Facebook and Instagram accounts, further content posted in the voice of Donald Trump will be removed and result in additional limitations on the accounts.”

After sharing the post, many people took to the comments to say it’s ‘ridiculous’.

One wrote: “Insane. Freedom of speech is no more.”

Another added: “Uh… So they’re just going to pretend he never existed?”

“Hurry up President Trump and get your own site going.You will have a great following,” a third said.

A Facebook spokesperson has since confirmed the email is legitimate but declined to add any further comment.

Following Trump’s ban from mainstream platforms, it’s been said he plans to launch his own social media app which he claims will ‘redefine the game’.
