Popular Video sharing and streaming platfrom, YouTube has suspended United States of America’s President, Donald Trump from uploading videos on his official channel.
YouTube made this known in a statement, explaining that a video uploaded to President Trump’s channel violated the site’s policy against inciting violence.
According to YouTube the suspension is billed to last for seven days.
Part of the statement read:
“After a 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.
“The content now has its first strike and is temporarily prevented from uploading new content for a minimum of 7 days.”
Youtube also disabled comments on President Trump’s channel.
YouTube, however, did not provide any details of the video on Trump’s channel which violated its policy and led to the “first strike.”
But five out of the six videos uploaded to the channel on Tuesday were clips from the far-right One America News (OAN) network with Trump’s comments delivered at an appearance in Alamo, Texas.
According to 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 is coming after Facebook, Instagram, Twitter and other platforms permanently banned Trump following riot at US Capitol on Friday.
