United States President, Donald Trump, has been temporarily suspended by Google-owned YouTube for violating its policy against inciting violence.

The social media platform also removed a video of the President that appears to be inciting supporters to lay siege on the Capitol.

YouTube joined other social media platforms in banning Trump’s accounts after last week’s Capitol riot by his supporters.

“In light of concerns about the ongoing potential for violence, we removed new content uploaded to Donald J. Trump’s channel for violating our policies,” YouTube said in a statement.

The channel stopped Trump from temporarily uploading new content for a minimum of 7 days.

The video-sharing platform also said it will be “indefinitely disabling comments” on Trump’s channel because of safety concerns.

Facebook, Instagram, and Twitter are among the big social media platforms to have suspended Trump’s account since the Capitol riot.
