Donald Trump's YouTube Account Violates New Rule And Cops One Week Ban
Donald Trump has been blocked from posting new content to his YouTube channel after violating their new rules.
The video streaming website introduced a new policy following the Capitol riots last week that consisted of a three-strike rule.
Any video caught making allegations that the 2020 Election was rigged or fraudulent would be wiped and YouTube would be on the hunt for any clips that encouraged violence.
The rules aren't even a week old and Trump's account has already broken it.
YouTube has released a statement, saying: "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.

"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."
It's unclear what the videos on Trump's account sparked the ban.
New York Times reporter Davey Alba suggested one video has since been removed that included the President saying 'there is always a countermove' and 'our journey is just beginning'.
Twitter permanently banned Trump's account due to the risk of inciting violence. The first suspension came after the President released a video, which the app blocked from being able to be retweeted, liked or commented on.
The Verge suggests YouTube could have introduced the ban to prevent Trump's supporters from inciting violence in the comments section.
