YouTube suspends Trump's channel for at least a week
YouTube has suspended US President Donald Trump's channel for at least a week amid concerns over the ongoing potential for violence, making it the latest platform to limit the president's online activities. The Google-owned platform said it removed content that was uploaded on January 12 from the Donald J Trump channel for inciting violence, although it was not immediately clear which videos in question were in violation. "Under the suspension, Trump's channel is temporarily prevented from uploading new videos or live streams for at least seven days, although the channel remains live," YouTube said.
