Donald Trump warned Thursday night that the United States is becoming ‘a communist country’ with strict censorship rules after his interview with daughter-in-law Lara was downed by Facebook on Tuesday.
The former president spoke to cable channel Real America’s Voice and criticized Facebook’s decision to cancel his interview.
Lara Trump spoke to him for her podcast on Tuesday. When she posted a video clip of their interview to Facebook, she received an email saying, “ We are contacting you to let you know that we have removed content from Lara Trump’s Facebook page where President Trump is word was.
“ Consistent with the blocking we posted on Donald Trump’s Facebook and Instagram accounts, any further content posted in Donald Trump’s voice will be removed and will result in additional restrictions on the accounts. ”
Trump, 74, said it was shocking.
“What’s happening in this country, no one ever thought it would happen,” he said. ‘It’s total censorship.

Trump’s interview with his daughter-in-law Lara was removed by Facebook on Tuesday
“You make a statement and if they don’t like it – about the election, or medical issues, or about Hunter Biden – they go nuts.”
Trump said the lack of debate was disappointing.
“You used to make a statement, they make a statement, you fight, you choose the winner,” he said.
And he said Facebook was acting to censor free speech.
“That’s a communist country,” he said.
‘You would fight – now there is no fight. They take it away. ‘

Speaking from his Mar-a-Lago estate in Florida, Trump said political justice needed to get tougher on fighting censorship and building a united front.
“The right, or the conservatives, they don’t fight the same way,” he said.
‘The radical left is meaner and tougher.
“They don’t have Mitt Romney or little Ben Sasse or anything. They stick together. ‘
Trump complained that Facebook was not acting fairly.
He said that material harmful to Joe Biden concerning his businessman son Hunter had been removed, but that content that was useful to him, such as the interview with his daughter-in-law, was not allowed.
The former president has been banned from most social media networks since January, when they ruled his risk of inciting further violence following the January 6 Capitol uprising was too great.
He said Twitter was “very boring” without him, and was pondering a possible boycott of the site by his followers.
Trump has long been toying with the idea of launching his own social media channel.
However, he concluded that issuing his own press statements – which he does regularly – was a more ‘elegant’ way of communicating than Twitter, saying he was satisfied with it.
