TikTok removes promo of Dr. Phil's Trump interview, audience member says friends are supporting Trump

"I'm upset with my 401k, I'm upset when I go to the grocery store and they're all voting for Trump now," an audience member said after seeing the interview.


An audience reacted to an interview that Donald Trump and Dr. Phil released on Thursday, where Dr. Phil revealed that TikTok censored a promo of the interview and an audience member said that she had Democrat friends shifting to support Trump. Dr. Phil played the interview for an audience after taping it. He commented, saying at that TikTok had censored his promo videos for the Trump interview before it was aired.

"We put promos on the social media platforms about the interview for people to watch, and we submitted a promo to TikTok, and they said, 'We need to review this to see if its consistent with community standards.'" Dr. Phil then commented that usually that reviews in his experience take a few seconds to happen. With the Trump interview promo it took about an hour; he then added that "the message came back: rejected."  

Phil called the censoring of the video "disturbing" and that they "wouldn't put it up because it had Trump in it." 

After the interview finished, one woman stood up and commented about how many of her friends that had voted for Biden in 2020 are shifting to support Trump in 2024.   

In talking about both her Republican and Democrat friends, she commented, "I had a lot of Republican friends and a lot of Democratic friends, I'm kinda neutral. But they talked about 'good versus evil.' And I thought, 'Well, we're not really in a Disney movie... You may not like him, I get that.'"  

She then commented about how those same people are now saying, "'I'm really upset with my 401k,' 'I'm upset when I go to the grocery store,' and they're all voting for Trump now."  

One audience member also commented, saying that she has seen pro-Trump videos on TikTok taken down on the social media platform, adding that it was evidence of bias. 


Another clip from the interview highlighted a shift in support to Trump that had Phil informing Trump that, during a focus group, he had someone say, "I have not voted for Trump, I have not been a Trump fan before, but I have donated to Trump, because he has inspired me. I have donated to him, and I am voting for him."
