The company said it removed video content from Trump on Tuesday night for "violating our policies."


"After review, and 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. President Trump's account will now be prevented from uploading new content for a minimum of seven days.

YouTube also temporarily disabled comments on Trump's channel "given the ongoing concerns about violence."

Trump is now banned from Twitter, Facebook and YouTube — all of the major social media platforms — until at least the end of his presidency.
