Lara Trump Tuesday night posted a screenshot of an email that appears to notify her that the video had been removed in line with the platform’s current suspension of the former president. Her post also included a screenshot of an email with an earlier time stamp that seemingly warned her that video of the interview would be removed if posted. 

A Facebook source verified the email posted by Lara Trump was authentic.

The email also warns Lara Trump that posting similar content could lead to more limitations on the account. 

“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,” the email said. 

Lara Trump criticized the decision in her caption, writing, “and just like that, we are one step closer to Orwell’s 1984. Wow.”

The 18-minute interview with the former president is still up and available to view on the website for Lara Trump’s “The Right View” show. 

Facebook banned the former president indefinitely shortly before he left office. The decision was prompted by posts he made regarding the Jan. 6 riot at the Capitol. 

Facebook has left the decision on whether to permanently ban or reinstate former President Trump’s account up to its Oversight Board. The board has yet to announce its decision.

Twitter, which also banned the former president after the insurrection, has said its ban is permanent.
