After a rally and Trump march ended with an attack on Capitol Hill by supporters of the president, many social media companies responded by banning his accounts or limiting Donald Trump’s publications. Youtube previously deleted a video where Donald Trump called the rioters “very special”, without however restricting his publications, while Facebook indefinitely banned the president, Twitch has deactivated their account and Twitter finally banned him.
Now YouTube said “Upon review, and in light of concerns about the continued potential for violence, we have removed new content uploaded to Donald J. Trump’s channel for violating our policies.” It is not known which videos were removed, there are still some available that were posted just seven hours ago, but the channel has now received a warning and will no longer be able to upload new content for a “minimum. Of a week. Video comments are also disabled and, like other platforms, Google-owned YouTube later cited “lingering concerns about violence” as the reason.
