Facebook removes Trump daughter-in-law’s video

President Trump launches website to advance 'America First' agenda

Lara Trump's Facebook video in which she interviews her father-in-law, former President Donald Trump, was removed after being informed that his voice is even banned from the platform. CEO Mark Zuckerberg cited the risk of ongoing violence for the decision.

In an interview with Fox News earlier this month, Jason Miller, a spokesman for Trump's 2020 campaign, said Trump will launch his own social media platform in two to three months.

But shortly after the episode went up on her Facebook and Instagram pages, the video was pulled down. Twitter banned Trump permanently on January 8, and other internet companies have taken similar actions to "deplatform" Trump. "She posted the email she and other Trump officials received on her Instagram account, with the caption, ".and just like that, we are one step closer to Orwell's 1984.

Facebook does still make a news exemption for Trump, presumably for something more akin to a 60 Minutes interview, but in this case he was being interviewed by someone involved in his campaign who then planned to promote the video on a campaign-associated account.

Facebook, Instagram and YouTube swiftly followed suit, handing out permanent bans to the former president, siphoning off his ability to communicate efficiently with his supporters.

Since the ban, the former president has been shown speaking on Facebook's platforms in news coverage from outlets such as Fox News and Newsmax.

Facebook's VP of Global Affairs and Communications, Nick Clegg, has said in a blog post in January that while Facebook believes the decision to ban Trump "was necessary and right", the company also thinks it is important for the board to "reach an independent judgment on whether it should be upheld".
