YouTube Platform has now removed a new video from his account for violating the content policies. The company also disabled comments on Trump’s channel indefinitely due to ‘safety concerns’ and issued a “strike” against his account, which means that he cannot upload new videos or live stream content for at least a week.
The company removed the video after the US civil rights group threatened to organize an advertiser boycott against YouTube if it didn’t take down Trump’s verified channel. Even last week, Facebook, Twitter, Snap, and even Reddit have all recently blocked Trump after his supports stormed the US Capitol which results in five deaths.
In an official statement of YouTube it stated- “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. As a result, following 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.”
Even earlier also YouTube removed one of Trump’s videos that addressed a mob attack on the Capitol. Twitter has also banned Trump citing as – ‘Risk of further incitement of violence”. Initially, Facebook prevented him from posting to Facebook and Instagram for 24 hours and later the CEO- Mark Zuckerberg announced to indefinitely suspend the account till January 20.
