YouTube reveals update on Trump's channel suspension
Former President Donald Trump's YouTube channel will 'remain suspended,' the company said Wednesday, pointing to an 'ongoing potential for violence' in the wake of the Capitol riot on Jan. 6.
"In light of concerns about the ongoing potential for violence, the Donald J. Trump channel will remain suspended," a YouTube spokesperson told Fox News."Our teams are staying vigilant and closely monitoring for any new developments."
YouTube also told Fox News that comments will continue to be indefinitely disabled under videos from Trump's channel.Facebook CEO Mark Zuckerberg said earlier this month that Trump’s Facebook and Instagram accounts would be blocked"indefinitely," saying he believed that"the risks" of allowing Trump to continue to use the platform"are simply too great."
Twitter CEO Jack Dorsey also said Trump would be"permanently" suspended, but said he does"not celebrate or feel pride" in the decision to"ban @realDonaldTrump.""I believe this was the right decision for Twitter," Dorsey continued."We faced an extraordinary and untenable circumstance, forcing us to focus all of our actions on public safety. Offline harm as a result of online speech is demonstrably real, and what drives our policy and enforcement above all." headtopics.com
REPUBLICANS SLAM TWITTER'S CROWDSOURCED FACT-CHECKING PROGRAM: 'WHAT COULD GO WRONG?'Dorsey acknowledged that taking such actions"fragment the public conversation","divide us" and"limit the potential for clarification, redemption, and learning." He also admitted that the power of his corporation in the"global public conversation" has set a "dangerous" precedent.
"The check and accountability on this power has always been the fact that a service like Twitter is one small part of the larger public conversation happening across the internet. If folks do not agree with our rules and enforcement, they can simply go to another internet service," Dorsey wrote.

remember when alex jones was banned? this is the same thing, except people actually elected this crook to be president. About 5 yrs too late. Trump should have been banned yrs ago after all the hate he's preached on social media. Thanks for 🦊 news Rumble Wtf Who cares! Just keep brainwashing my parents and making all our lives worse. Thank you, Fox
Why would they let this white supremacist domestic terrorist on their platform? Gotta love the fact Trump destroyed your network 🤦♂️🤦♂️🤦♂️ Anyone who incites violence or insurrection should be told to GTFO. Be it Trump or Biden, Can Americans think like that, Plz? That’s fair. You can’t give a toy back to a child who will try to break it again. He tried using others Twitter accounts. He clearly has an addiction to it.
No need to worry. He still has his PornHub account in order to search for future girlfriends and ex wives. SNEAKING BACK INTO THE WHITE HOUSE *ALMOST GOT CAUGHT* (NOT CLICKBAIT) They all hate the greatest president No one cares about Trump anymore. Yesterday's news. Today's toilet paper. This tweet is a recalcitrant mound of wormy whale semen
