Silicon Valley is clearly tired of President Trump’s speech. Whereas, every platform has been blocked in some way at this point. With YouTube he became the latest to ban President Trump.
YouTube has not completely banned the president from using his account. Instead, it blocked the uploads for seven days and issued a “warning” against the account. YouTube has not confirmed the prompted action video on the account. The company did not provide specific details about the video content.
YouTube Do you “After careful review, and in light of concerns about the potential for continued violence, we removed the new content uploaded to Donald J. Trump’s channel and issued a warning for violating our policies on incitement to violence,” he said.
The video-sharing platform has also removed the content from the official White House channel. Two videos have been removed, one in which Trump was speaking to reporters and the other with remarks he made at the border wall yesterday.
YouTube joins Spotify, Twitter, Facebook and many others in restraining the president
All of this is part of the fallout from the Capitol riots on January 6 that many believe were instigated by the president. Who continued the violent speech.
Twitter blocked the president on Friday evening, which made the president turn into a state of alienation. Facebook and Instagram mainland banned after the Capitol riots. But they are not the only ones who have prevented it. Shopify, which is the backbone of his campaign store, has blocked it. Stripe no longer handles campaign donations for the president. Even Snapchat and Pinterest banned his accounts.
It’s something many of us never thought we’d see. Most of the most popular platforms prevent the President of the United States from using theirs. But given recent events, it is definitely necessary.
