Trump, former first lady Melania launch new personal website

ORLANDO FLORIDA- FEBRUARY 28 Former U.S. President Donald Trump addresses the Conservative Political Action Conference held in the Hyatt Regency

Social media giant Facebook has removed a video of an interview with the former US President Donald Trump, who remains banned from the platform, from his daughter-in-law Lara Trump's Facebook page, a company spokeswoman said on Wednesday.

Eric Trump, the President's son and Lara's husband, posted Facebook's warning message publicly, calling it a "slap in the face to 75 million Americans".

Lara Trump discusses how Facebook censored a recent interview with Donald Trump, with the company saying his "voice" could not be used on the platform. Facebook CEO Mark Zuckerberg claimed that the risks associated with allowing Trump to have a voice on the platform were "simply too great".

She later posted a screenshot of an email from Facebook that said her video with Trump speaking had been removed, citing the ban on his accounts.

"Content posted on Facebook and Instagram in the voice of President Trump is not now allowed on our platforms (including new posts with President Trump speaking) and will be removed if posted, resulting in additional limitations on accounts that posted it". The officials received another email explaining how guidelines are the same since Facebook owns Instagram.


Those rules apply to any accounts or pages associated with the Trump campaign as well as any belonging to former surrogates for the campaign, two categories that Lara Trump's account falls into.

Lewandowski's words follow Trump's comments earlier this month that he and his team were working on setting up a new social media site.

Donald Trump was also banned from Twitter and YouTube.

Former President Donald Trump launched his new website called "45 Office" Monday.
