YouTube has blocked new content uploaded to President Donald Trump’s channel citing violations of policies for inciting violence.
The channel is now prevented from uploading new videos or live streams for a minimum of seven days-which may be extended, Youtube said in a statement.
“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,” YouTube said in a Tweet.
“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.”
YouTube did not specify the nature of the content that prompted Tuesday’s action. According to CNN Business, it concerned a video that promoted violence.
