Even with the massive upset that was the 2020 election, former President Trump still believes in America and the people who call this great country home. Since leaving the White House, Trump has been rather quiet, letting the Democrats and Biden show America what true leaders look like. What followed was a border crisis, numerous scandals, and a President who can barely manage a flight of stairs. Having seen enough, Trump recently spoke about his potential at regaining the presidency in 2024. But before you look up this interview, you should be aware, it was taken down shortly after thanks to Facebook’s ever-changing rules.
Before we get into the ongoing war between Trump and Big Tech, let’s start with the video and what it pertained to. The interview, which took place on “The Right Side”, is hosted by Trump’s daughter-in-law Lara Trump and has been streaming steadily on Facebook’s platform, which they never had a problem with until the main guest arrived.
Over the 18-minute interview, Trump takes numerous questions about the 2020 election and his thoughts on why he should have won. He also weighs in on the current Biden Administration and how they are handling the numerous “circumstances” they find themselves in. But the interview doesn’t really pick up until Lara asks, “The other question people all want to know — and I know you’re not ready to answer it yet — but do we have hope that there’s a possibility to see Donald Trump run again in 2024?”
The question that everybody wants to know. The right wants their proven leader back in the White House, while the Democrats know another Trump campaign could cripple them. With both sides watching, Trump responded, “You do have hope, that I can tell you. You do have hope. We love our country — this country. We all owe a lot to our country, but now we have to help our country. … And we were there. We were so good. What we did with Iran, what we did with China. We were all set to do some great things. And then you see what’s going on right now.”
While it might not be the answer people were looking for, Trump has always been a master of timing, so although he didn’t confirm his bid – he did hint at his interest in taking back the White House.
But as quickly as the video aired and started circulating, it was mysteriously taken down. It wasn’t until the following day that a Facebook employee reached out with a message. It read, “Hi folks. We are reaching out to let you know that we removed content from Lara Trump’s Facebook Page that featured President Trump speaking. 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.”
Luckily, the interview was saved and can still be viewed on streaming sites like Rumble. That is until Big Tech extends its censorship even further.
