Google’s Youtube Suspends Trump, Accuses Him of Violating Its Policies

Google’s Youtube has removed new content from President Donald Trump’s account and suspended his channel for at least one week, saying that the channel violated its policies.

“After careful review, and in light of concerns about the ongoing potential for violence, we removed new content uploaded to the Donald J. Trump channel and issued a strike for violating our policies for inciting violence,” a YouTube spokesperson said in a statement to The Epoch Times.

“As a result, in accordance with our long-standing strikes system, the channel is now prevented from uploading new videos or livestreams for a minimum of seven days—which may be extended. We are also indefinitely disabling comments under videos on the channel, we’ve taken similar actions in the past for other cases involving safety concerns.”

Google did not have any further comment when asked about what aspects of the new content on Trump’s channel it deemed as having violated its policies.

The Trump campaign did not immediately respond to a request for comment.

Earlier in the day, a video showing Trump’s Tuesday speech in Alamo, Texas was visible on his Youtube channel. As of midnight ET, the video is no longer available on the channel. In the speech, Trump praised that 450 miles of border wall have been constructed.

“Free speech is under assault like never before,” he also said. “The 25th Amendment is of zero risk to me but will come back to haunt Joe Biden and the Biden administration. As the expression goes: Be careful what you wish for.”

“The impeachment hoax is a continuation of the greatest and most vicious witch hunt in the history of our country, and it is causing tremendous anger and division and pain—far greater than most people will ever understand, which is very dangerous for the USA, especially at this very tender time,” he continued.

Trump later said, “Now is the time for our nation to heal, and it’s time for peace and for calm. Respect for law enforcement and the great people within law enforcement—so many are here—is the foundation of the MAGA agenda.”

“And we’re a nation of law, and we’re a nation of order. That is why we’re here today, to talk about what we must do to uphold the rule of law in America and how we must continue to support our law enforcement heroes, which is exactly what you are.”

Youtube is the latest big tech platform to have taken action against content posted by Trump. Last week, Twitter first placed restrictions on a video the president posted, before temporarily suspending his account, an action followed closely by Facebook.

Twitter two days later permanently suspended Trump’s account over two Twitter posts it cited as having violated its policies.
