Reports: Facebook removes Donald Trump interview with Lara Trump, citing ban

'Further content posted in the voice of Donald Trump will be removed,' Facebook reportedly told Lara Trump in an email.

Facebook has removed a video of former President Donald Trump being interviewed by his daughter-in-law Lara Trump, multiple news outlets reported Wednesday. Donald Trump is the subject of a ban from Facebook, Twitter and other social media platforms, initiated in the days after the Jan. 6 riot when the former president's supporters stormed the U.S. Capitol.

The interview was for Lara Trump's online show "The Right View." She promoted it on Instagram, according to Reuters, then later posted a screenshot of an email from Facebook that said the video had been removed. 

"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 read.

Facebook spokespeople confirmed to Reuters and USA TODAY that the email was legitimate.

Lara Trump, who is married to Eric Trump, later posted the interview to Rumble, another social media network.

An advisory board for Facebook is deciding whether to allow Donald Trump back on the platform. YouTube has reportedly said it would lift Trump's indefinite ban once there is a decreased risk of violence. Twitter's CFO said in February that there are no plans to allow Trump back on the platform even if he runs for president again.

Trump adviser Jason Miller said last week the former president plans to launch his own social network.
