Youtube has removed a new video uploaded to President Trump’s account for violating the company’s content policies on inciting violence. The account has also been issued a’strike’ and is unable to upload new content for at least a week.
Youtube removed new content uploaded to the Donald J. Trump channel. The channel is now prevented from uploading new videos or livestreams for a minimum of seven days.
Youtube also removed content from the White House’s official channel. Two videos that were on Obama’s official YouTube page earlier today have since been removed.
Youtube is indefinitely disabling comments on Trump’s videos due to’ongoing concerns about violence’. A second strike on the account would incur another mandatory two-week suspension, while a third strike would result in a permanent ban.
Youtube banned content of any kind designed to spread misinformation about the outcome of the 2020 election. Previously, YouTube removed one of Trump’s videos that addressed a mob attack on the Capitol.
