Facebook removed a clip of an interview with former US President Donald Trump from its platform, according to the former president’s daughter-in-law Lara Trump.

In a post shared to her Instagram account, Lara Trump, who is a Fox News commentator, shared a message from Facebook officials alerting her they had removed a video teaser of an upcoming interview with her father-in-law on Fox News.

The message sent from Facebook explained that the video had been removed “in line with the block placed on Donald Trump’s Facebook and Instagram accounts.”

“This guidance applies to all campaign accounts and Pages, including Team Trump, other campaign messaging vehicles on our platforms, and former surrogates,” the email, posted to Instagram stated.

It added that “any further content posted in the voice of Donald Trump will be removed and result in additional limitations on the accounts.”

Trump has been banned from Facebook since early January, after fomenting and then failing to condemn the violent insurrection of the Capitol. At the time, chief executive officer Mark Zuckerberg said the company believed “the risks of allowing the president to continue to use our service during this period are simply too great.”
