YouTube joins in and deletes Trump video immediately after posting


It would seem that all eyes are on US President Donald Trump, including social media giants that reign in the virtual world. Facebook and Twitter have banned Trump’s accounts, and this time around, YouTube has pitched in. It turns out, the video sharing site has been closely monitoring the U.S. President’s account and has recently taken down one of the videos that was uploaded on his channel.

A report on The Verge states that an alleged violation of the company’s policies was cited as the grounds for such removal. Aside from removing the video, YouTube issued a “strike” against the account, which disables its ability to upload new content. The strike lasts for at least one week.
