YouTube suspends President Trump’s channel for ‘a minimum’ of one week for violating the site’s policy

YouTube suspends President Trump?s channel for ?a minimum? of one week for violating the site?s policy

YouTube announced on Tuesday it is suspending President Trump’s channel for at least a week.

The video-sharing platform confirmed in a statement that a video uploaded to President Trump’s channel violated the site’s policy against inciting violence and as a result, the platform suspended his ability to share content on YouTube for at least seven days.

 

“After review, and in light of concerns about the ongoing potential for violence, we removed new content uploaded to Donald J. Trump’s channel for violating our policies. It now has its 1st strike & is temporarily prevented from uploading new content for a *minimum* of 7 days,” YouTube said in a statement.

 

The video side added, “Given the ongoing concerns about violence, we will also be indefinitely disabling comments on President Trump’s channel, as we’ve done to other channels where there are safety concerns found in the comments section.”

 

YouTube didn’t provide any details of the video shared on Trump’s channel that violated its policy and led to the “first strike.” Among the six videos uploaded to the channel on Tuesday, five were clips from the far-right One America News (OAN) network with Trump’s comments delivered at an appearance in Alamo, Texas.

 

Under YouTube’s “three strikes” guidelines, if a channel receives a second strike within 90 days it will be suspended for two weeks; a third strike results in a permanent ban.

 

YouTube’s move comes after Twitter permanently banned Trump last Friday after the Capitol riot. Trump’s accounts on Facebook, Instagram, Snapchat, Twitch, and other platforms also have been indefinitely or permanently blocked.
