THE UNITED States is "turning Communist," cries Donald Trump, as he blames "total censorship" after Facebook removed his interview with his daughter-in-law Lara Trump.
"That's a Communist country," Trump said, blasting Facebook's removal of a post by Lara. "You'd fight – now there is no fight. They take it down."
The former president presented the McCarthian idea to the cable channel Real America's Voice, saying Lara's post of a podcast interview with him was removed because the country has turned communist for silencing his voice.
"We are reaching out to let you know that we removed content from Lara Trump's Facebook page that featured President Trump speaking," read an email sent to Lara after she posted their podcast interview.
"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," continued the email.
But Trump had a problem with that rule.
"You make a statement and if they don't like it – about the election, or medical issues, or about Hunter Biden – they go crazy," he told the cable channel.
In the interview, Trump suggested he would likely run for president in 2024.
He also covered a long range of topics, from the coronavirus pandemic to Hunter Biden.
"In the old days, you make a statement, they make a statement, you fight, you pick the winner," he continued, before calling the United States a "communist country" for allowing this censorship.
"The right, or the conservatives, they don't fight the same way," he continued, saying maybe his supporters would leave Twitter because "the radical left is meaner and tougher."
"They don't have Mitt Romney or little Ben Sasse or any of that crap. They stick together," he continued, referencing two members of the Republican party who have rebuked him in the past.
He added Twitter was "very boring" without him, all while sitting at his Mar-a-Lago estate.
Trump has been banned from most social media networks after the January 6 Capitol riots.
Many platforms have said the president encouraged the deadly attempted siege on the Capitol, pointing to a video he presented hours before telling his supporters to "fight like hell."
