The action from YouTube’s administrators left the president’s account unable to post new videos, though previously-uploaded videos remained on the channel. A statement from YouTube released on Twitter indicated that Trump would be unable to post new content for a “minimum” of seven days.
“After 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. It now has its 1st strike & is temporarily prevented from uploading new content for a *minimum* of 7 days,” reads YouTube’s statement.
“Given the ongoing concerns about violence, we will also be indefinitely disabling comments on President Trump’s channel, as we’ve done to other channels where there are safety concerns found in the comments section,” the company added.
