YouTube Will Block Trump Until the Risk of Violence Has Disappeared
YouTube will continue to block former US President Trump’s channel as long as there is a risk of incitement to violence.
Only when that risk has disappeared will the channel be seen again on the video film website; American media quote the boss of YouTube, Susan Wojcicki.
YouTube took Trump’s channel offline early this year for violating YouTube’s policies that prohibit incitement to violence.
Trump’s supporters had recently stormed the Capitol building in Washington to prevent rival Biden’s election victory from being ratified.
Trump’s channel on the platform will no longer be able to upload or live stream new videos. After the attack on the Capitol, Twitter and Facebook, among others, also took measures against the then president.
