YouTube is suspending US President Donald Trump’s channel for at least one week, and potentially longer, after his channel earned a strike under the platform’s policies.
A recent video on Trump’s channel had incited violence, YouTube said. That video has now been removed.
YouTube declined to share details of the video that earned Trump the strike, but said that after the one-week timeout, it will revisit the decision.
YouTube also removed content from the White House’s channel for violating policy, but the channel itself has not been suspended or been given a strike-just a warning.
Facebook has suspended Trump’s account “indefinitely,” while Twitter has banned Trump completely.
Under YouTube’s policies, earning a second strike will result in a two-week suspension and three strikes will result in a permanent ban.
