Facebook’s censorship of her interview with her father-in-law, has prompted Lara Trump to move the platform for her popular online show to rival CloutHub.

“The View with Lara Trump” is now featured prominently on CloutHub’s channels page,” reported Paul Bedard in the Washington Examiner.

The site is already home to several right-leaning commentators, including Rudy Giuliani, Michael Flynn and Bernard Kerik, he noted.

CloutHub describes itself a “media platform that champions free speech and civic discourse.”

Lara Trump is married to Trump’s son Eric and worked with the administration while Donald Trump was president. She also worked with veteran and animal groups and has considered a run for the Senate in North Carolina.

Facebook censored Lara Trump this week, threatening “additional limitations” on “accounts” that include such material.

“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,” the email said. “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.”

Fox News said Lara Trump posted an image on Instagram of her sitting across from her father-in-law asking viewers to “Join us tonight!”

The Facebook employee said, “This guidance applies to all campaign accounts and Pages, including Team Trump, other campaign messaging vehicles on our platforms, and former surrogates.”

Fox News said Facebook did not respond to a request for comment.

Facebook banished Donald Trump after the riot in January at the U.S. Capitol, when CEO Mark Zuckerberg said his company officials “believe the risks of allowing the President to continue to use our service during this period are simply too great.”

Twitter, Snapchat and YouTube joined in the censorship.

Trump senior adviser Jason Miller has said Trump will be back on social media, likely bypassing the existing companies.

“I do think that we’re going to see President Trump returning to social media in probably about two or three months here, with his own platform,” Miller told Fox News’ #MediaBuzz earlier this month. “And this is something that I think will be the hottest ticket in social media, it’s going to completely redefine the game, and everybody is going to be waiting and watching to see what exactly President Trump does.”

Newsweek reported Donald Trump said in the 18-minute video interview with his daughter-in-law that his supporters should have “hope” he will run for the White House again in 2024.

But he did not make a formal announcement.
