YouTube also blocks Donald Trump’s channel.
The video platform restricts the US President’s account, and new content has been deleted. The ban should apply at least until Joe Biden’s inauguration.
Around a week after the storming of the US Capitol, YouTube has now also taken strict measures against the outgoing President Donald Trump. In view of “concerns about the continuing potential for violence”, new content on Trump’s channel has been removed, the video platform announced.
Videos should no longer be uploaded there for at least seven days. The comment function has also been deactivated; this applies for an indefinite period. Older videos remain available, however.
Previously, Twitter and Facebook had permanently blocked the respective accounts of the elected president. Google and Apple also banned the Parler social media app, popular with Trump fans, from their app stores, while Amazon deleted the platform from its server.
