The latest video on Trump’s channel sparked violence, YouTube told CNN Business, that the video has now been removed.
YouTube declined to reveal details of the video that earned Trump the protest. But said after a week’s expiration to revisit the decision, YouTube removed content from the White House channel for policy violations, the company told CNN Business.
So far, YouTube is the only major remaining social media platform that has not suspended Trump in some form. Facebook has suspended Trump’s account “indefinitely” while Twitter has banned Trump entirely.
“After careful review and due to ongoing concerns about possible violence, we have removed new content uploaded to the Donald J. Trump channel and issued a warning for violating our policy of inciting new members of the Board of Directors). Violence occurred, “a YouTube spokesperson said in a statement. “As a result of our longstanding protest system, channels are now prevented from uploading new videos or live streams for at least seven days, which may have been extended.”
YouTube also said it would take special steps to shut down comments on videos on Trump’s channel.
Under YouTube’s policy, getting a second strike will be suspended for 2 weeks and three strikes will result in a permanent ban.
