YouTube Deletes Trump Video And Suspends New Uploads For A Week
YouTube has removed a new video uploaded to President Trump’s account for violating the content policies. The company has also issued a “strike” against his account, meaning he cannot upload new content for at least a week.
“After careful review, and in light of concerns about the ongoing potential for violence, we removed new content uploaded to the Donald J. Trump channel and issued a strike for violating our policies for inciting violence,” YouTube says in a statement to The Verge.
“As a result, in accordance with our long-standing strikes system, the channel is now prevented from uploading new videos or live streams for a minimum of seven days — which may be extended,” it said on Tuesday.
YouTube has also indefinitely disabled comments on Trump’s videos due to “ongoing concerns about violence”.
Last Friday, Twitter has permanently suspended U.S. President Donald Trump’s account due to the risk of further incitement of violence following the storming of the U.S. Capitol on Wednesday.
