Facebook has removed the voice of former President Donald Trump in a move that they called “in line with the block” they placed on Trump’s Facebook page, according to The Washington Examiner.
The offending interview was conducted by Trump’s daughter-in-law, Laura Trump, who posted the video to Facebook, which was promptly removed by the social media platform.
“…and just like that, we are one step closer to Orwell’s 1984. Wow,” Lara Trump said of the removal on her Facebook Tuesday evening.
The former first-daughter-in-law included screenshots of the message reportedly sent to her by the social media platform when the post was taken down that explained the removal of content.
“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.”
Eric Trump, the former president’s son and husband of Laura, also shared his outrage on the issue. “This is Facebook friends! What an absolute slap in the face to 75 Million Americans,” Eric Trump tweeted.

The question on the minds of conservatives is this: what is Facebook so afraid of? What could make them want to alienate themselves from roughly 75 million Americans?
The Washington Examiner did not immediately receive a response from Facebook to their request for comment. However, anyone wishing to see what Facebook has blocked and possibly answer their questions about the former Commander-in-Chief’s interview HERE.
