Youtube has suspended President Donald Trump’s account for at least one week due to violations of YouTube policies for ‘ongoing potential for violence,’ the company said.

“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. It now has its 1st strike & is temporarily prevented from uploading new content for a *minimum* of 7 days,” reads YouTube’s statement.

YouTube also said it will also be disabling the comment feature on Trump’s channel.

“Given the ongoing concerns about violence, we will also be indefinitely disabling comments on President Trump’s channel, as we’ve done to other channels where there are safety concerns found in the comments section,” the company added.

Trump’s account has been issued a “strike.” If he receives a second strike on the account, he would face another mandatory two-week suspension and a third strike would result in a permanent ban.

YouTube also removed two videos from the White House’s official channel.

Twitter permanently banned Trump last week from its platform, saying Trump’s posts pose “the risk of further incitement of violence.”

Facebook indefinitely banned Trump’s account until likely Biden’s inauguration, with Facebook CEO Mark Zuckerberg saying the “risks of allowing the President to continue to use our service during this period are simply too great.”

“I think that Big Tech is doing a horrible thing for our country and to our country and I believe it’s going to be a catastrophic mistake for them,” Trump told reporters yesterday.

Reporting from outside the New York City courthouse, MSNBC reporter Vaughn Hillyard explained the juror called the court to inform them that she did not know if she could actually be fair and impartial.

“She was asked to come to court this morning and went before the defense and went before the District Attorney’s office and answered questions about how she got to that conclusion” the reporter explains.

The juror discussed how she got calls, even yesterday, from friends, colleagues and family “questioning my identity as a juror.” She continued to say “I don’t believe I can be fair and unbiased and let the outside influences not affect me in the courtroom” the reporter quoted.

Hillyard’s report went on the emphasize the difficulty for these jurors in the next six to eight weeks because these are individuals who are supposed to be anonymous, yet we and the sides have some details about who these individuals are such as their neighborhoods and their occupations.
