Facebook is banning Trump’s “voice” now.
How insane is that?
Lara Trump recently interviewed her father in law President Trump and posted the interview on Facebook but almost immediately Facebook removed the video.
Facebook didn’t hide the reason why the video got deleted though, in Facebook’s official statement they stated “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”.

The Washington Examiner covered Facebook’s ridiculous decision:
Facebook reportedly removed a video interview between former President Donald Trump and his daughter-in-law, Lara Trump, following the former commander in chief’s ban from the platform in January.
“…and just like that, we are one step closer to Orwell’s 1984. Wow,” Lara Trump posted on Facebook Tuesday evening, accompanied by screenshots of messages ostensibly from a Facebook employee explaining why the video was pulled.
“We removed content from Lara Trump’s Facebook page that featured President Trump speaking,” the Facebook message posted by Lara Trump said. “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.”

The New York Post got the scoop too:
An interview of former President Trump by daughter-in-law Lara Trump has been removed by Facebook, according to an email sent by an employee for the social media giant.
Lara Trump, a Fox News contributor, touted her “big show” Tuesday guest on her podcast, “The Right View With Lara Trump,” for a one-on-one sit-down with the former commander-in-chief and her father-in-law.
“I have a quite surprise for you this evening,” Lara Trump told her 1.4 million followers. “Guess who’s gonna be in that chair?”
Trump said her followers didn’t want to miss the interview, which was later posted and removed from her Facebook page, according to an email message she circulated on Instagram.
“We are reaching out to let you that we removed content from Lara Trump’s Facebook page that featured President Trump speaking,” the message from a Facebook employee read.
“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,” the email continued.
Well, just because Facebook doesn’t want Trump’s voice on their platform it doesn’t mean other platforms have booted him too.
