TRUMP YOUTUBE SUSPENSION WILL LIFT AFTER ‘RISK OF VIOLENCE’ DECREASES, CEO SUSAN WOJCICKI SAYS

The suspension of former President Donald Trump’s YouTube channel will be lifted “when we determine the risk of violence has decreased,” CEO Susan Wojcicki said Thursday.

Wojcicki made the remarks during an interview with Atlantic Council President and CEO Frederick Kempe.

Trump’s channel was blocked from uploading new videos after a mob of his supporters stormed the U.S. Capitol, part of a wave of suspensions issued by all of the major social media platforms.

Snapchat and Twitter permanently banned Trump. Facebook turned over the decision of whether to allow Trump back on Facebook and Instagram to its Oversight Board. Trump’s accounts on Facebook and Instagram remained suspended pending the Oversight Board’s decision.
