Google announced late Tuesday that President Donald Trump’s YouTube page was temporarily suspended and added to a long list of social media platforms that temporarily or permanently ban presidential posts.
Google said Trump’s account was issued a strike on Tuesday and he was barred from uploading new content for at least seven days.
“After the review, we removed the new content uploaded to Donald J. Trump’s channel for violating the policy, considering concerns about the ongoing potential for violence,” Google said. .. “Given the ongoing concerns about violence, we will invalidate comments on President Trump’s channel indefinitely, as we did for other channels with safety concerns in the comments section.”
Trump’s ban on YouTube pages came under pressure from civil rights groups to remove the page.
“We call on working with our coalition partners to act decisively to help YouTube stop the spread of hatred by closing Trump’s account,” the NAACP said in a statement. Reuters on Tuesday.
Last week, both Twitter and Facebook announced that they had banned Trump from using their platform. Parler, the far-right social media platform, was also essentially knocked out of the Internet because web host Amazon removed the platform because of concerns that unmoderated posts were inciting violence.
The announcement will be made this weekend when authorities have expressed concern about planned attacks across the United States at local and state government buildings.
