“How did we get to this place where the former president of the United States can’t be seen on your account?” “Fox & Friends'” Brian Kilmeade asked.
Lara Trump responded that if social media can censor the former president then “tomorrow it could be you.”
She added, “This is not the country we want to live in, this happens in communist countries.”
“But I think the message is they want to erase Donald Trump. They want you to forget he existed. They don’t want you to see him, they don’t want you to hear from him, look away, move on, shut up and go on about your lives, forget Donald Trump existed. This is really scary stuff.”
Lara Trump — who recently joined Fox News as a contributor — also shared that her father-in-law is “terrified too.”
“He is very upset by it,” she said. “And look, you’ve heard he might be thinking about a social media platform, never a better time than right now to push that forward.”
Lara Trump held an interview with Donald Trump for her show “The Right View.” Facebook removed the video, citing the former president’s indefinite ban.
Following the U.S. Capitol riot on Jan. 6, Facebook and Instagram — which is owned by Facebook — indefinitely suspended Trump.
An email from Facebook to Lara Trump 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.”
