YouTube extends suspension of former President Trump

YouTube on Tuesday said it’s again extending its suspension of former President Donald Trump, who’s been banned from posting videos to his channel since Jan. 12.

Comments on Trump’s videos will also remain disabled indefinitely.

“In light of concerns about the ongoing potential for violence, the Donald J. Trump channel will remain suspended,” a YouTube spokesperson confirmed to CNET.

Our teams are staying vigilant and closely monitoring for any new developments, he said.

YouTube first extended Trump’s suspension last week, saying it would reevaluate the situation in a week.

The company gave no indication on Tuesday of how long the latest extension would last.

Silicon Valley giants have sought to rein in Trump as social media platforms reckoned with their role in the Capitol riots.

Twitter has permanently banned Trump, while Facebook has indefinitely blocked his account.

Last week, the social network said it would leave the decision of whether to reinstate Trump to Facebook’s independent oversight board.
