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.

Biden supports ‘exception’ to filibuster to ‘codify Roe v. Wade in the law’

Breaking Thursday, President Joe Biden gave his support to amend or drop the filibuster rule in order to restore perceived abortion rights lost following the Supreme Court overturning Roe v Wade on Friday.

While at the NATO summit in Spain, Biden said “The most important thing to be clear about is I believe we have to codify Roe v. Wade in the law, and the way to do that is to make sure the Congress votes to do that.”

“And if the filibuster gets in the way, it’s like voting rights, it should be we provide an exception for this, requiring an exception to the filibuster for this action to deal with the Supreme Court decision,” Biden added.

A filibuster requires 60 votes, and The Hill writes “There are not 50 senators who support changing the rules around the filibuster, however, making Biden’s suggestion unlikely to go anywhere.”
