YouTube has been added to the list of social media bans on US President Donald Trump. Google suspends Donald Trump’s YouTube channel.
Google-owned YouTube has suspended Donald Trump’s YouTube channel for seven days. As a result, new videos can no longer be uploaded to Trump’s YouTube channel and streamed live. A seven-day suspension has been announced, but Trump’s YouTube channel could be permanently banned.
Why Google suspends Donald Trump’s YouTube channel?
Google claims that Trump’s YouTube channel helped to provoke the violence and that it violated YouTube’s policy.
Trump uploaded various videos to his YouTube channel only on Tuesday, and some of them are objectionable, according to YouTube. Google has not disclosed what content was in the banned Trump videos. So, Google has decided to suspend Trump’s YouTube channel just hours after rights groups warned of an organized boycott of ads on YouTube.
Some campaigners who launched a similar campaign against Facebook last year have called for Trump’s channel to be shut down forever.
Google said in a statement that. “New content uploaded to Donald Trump’s channel has been removed after an in-depth review of the potential threat of violence.”
Facebook and Instagram have previously suspended Donald Trump’s account. While Twitter has taken a step further by permanently banning his account. Amazon’s Twitch has also deactivated Trump’s account, and Snapchat has locked the account. In addition, Shopify, Pinterest, TickTack, and Reddit have tightened their grip on Trump’s account.

Speaking to reporters at the base, Trump said Tuesday that “Big Tech is doing a horrible thing for our country and to our country. And I believe it’s going to be a catastrophic mistake for them.
“Trump continued. “It causes a lot of problems and a lot of danger … there’s always a counter-move when they do that, I’ve never seen such anger.”The remarks could be interpreted as a signal of coming retaliation for Trump’s suspension from Twitter and Facebook.
