Trump's YouTube blocking extended indefinitely

The video hosting site YouTube has indefinitely extended a ban on the publication of new videos on the channel of former U.S. President Donald Trump, according to Bloomberg.

“In light of concerns about the continuing possibility of violence, Donald Trump’s channel will remain blocked,” a YouTube spokesman told the agency.

YouTube announced Jan. 12 after the Capitol riots that it would suspend Trump’s account indefinitely. The video host extended its decision the day before to leave Trump’s channel blocked.

Trump’s account will remain on the Web, but he is not allowed to post new videos. Comments under previously posted videos will remain disabled.

On January 6, supporters of the 45th president rioted in Washington and temporarily seized the Capitol. After that, many social networks in the U.S., including Twitter and Facebook, blocked Trump’s accounts because they believe that his posts could provoke further violence.
