YouTube said on Tuesday it has suspended Donald Trump’s channel as it violated policies for inciting violence after last week’s assault on the US Capitol by the president’s supporters.
Axar.az reports citing foreign media that online platforms and social media companies are distancing themselves from, and taking action against, those that encouraged or engaged in the violence in Washington, DC.
Trump’s 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.
Supporters of Trump stormed the US Capitol on Wednesday, trying to halt the certification by Congress of president-elect Joe Biden’s election win.
Trump, who has challenged the validity of Biden’s victory without producing evidence, initially praised his supporters but later condemned the violence.
