US President Donald Trump will be banned from uploading videos or live-streaming to his YouTube channel for at least an additional seven days, Alphabet Inc’s Google says.
YouTube banned Trump from posting videos a week ago for violating its content policies, saying that a seven-day suspension was the required punishment.
Trump is scheduled to vacate the White House on Wednesday as President-elect Joe Biden takes office, two weeks after supporters of Trump stormed the US Capitol as Congress began to certify the Electoral College results that Biden won the election.
“In light of concerns about the ongoing potential for violence, the Donald J. Trump channel will be prevented from uploading new videos or livestreams for an additional minimum of seven days,” the company said on Tuesday.
“As we shared previously, comments will continue to be indefinitely disabled under videos from the channel.”
