Former President Donald Trump’s YouTube channel will remain suspended indefinitely, Politico reports.

YouTube banned Trump from its platform Jan. 12 following the U.S. Capitol attack. Last week, YouTube extended the suspension for at least one week before the indefinite suspension was announced Tuesday.

“In light of concerns about the ongoing potential for violence, the Donald J. Trump channel will remain suspended,” YouTube spokesperson Ivy Choi said in a statement obtained by Politico. “Our teams are staying vigilant and closely monitoring for any new developments.”

YouTube has also restricted Trump adviser and lawyer Rudy Giuliani from earning money off his videos.

Last week, Giuliani was suspended from YouTube’s Partner Program for at least 30 days, prohibiting him from profiting off of ads that run on his videos.

YouTube accused Giuliani of violating its policies by repeatedly sharing election misinformation.

According to YouTube community guidelines, “spam, scams, or other manipulated media, coordinated influence operations, and any content that seeks to incite violence” are prohibited. Content “alleging widespread fraud or errors changed the outcome of a historical U.S. Presidential election” are also prohibited. However, they do allow “controversial views on the outcome or process of counting votes of a current election.”

“We welcome ongoing debate and discussion and will keep engaging with experts, researchers and organizations to ensure that our policies and products are meeting that goal,” YouTube said.

Giuliani can appeal the suspension with YouTube or reapply to the program after 30 days, the company said.

As of September 12, the state of Texas has raised a little over $55 million in private donations, to secure the southern border and build a wall. “While securing the border is the federal government’s responsibility, Texas will not sit idly by as this crisis grows. Texas is responding with the most robust and comprehensive border plan the nation has ever seen,” Texas Gov. Greg Abbott said in a statement.

“The State of Texas is working collaboratively with communities impacted by the border crisis to arrest and detain individuals coming into Texas illegally,” Abbott’s statement reads. “Our efforts will only be effective if we work together to secure the border, make criminal arrests, protect landowners, rid our communities of dangerous drugs, and provide Texans with the support they need and deserve.”

In addition to finding money for a border wall, Abbott has signed legislation which designated Mexican drug cartels as domestic terrorists, and has called on President Joe Biden to do the same.

“Fentanyl is a clandestine killer, and Texans are falling victim to the Mexican cartels that are producing it,” said Governor Abbott in a statement. “Cartels are terrorists, and it’s time we treated them that way. In fact, more Americans died from fentanyl poisoning in the past year than all terrorist attacks across the globe in the past 100 years. In order to save our country, particularly our next generation, we must do more to get fentanyl off our streets.”

“As of now, Biden has not responded to Abbott’s request to designate Mexican cartels as terrorist organizations” reports Just The News.
