YouTube announced on Tuesday that the channel of Former US President, Donald Trump will remain suspended indefinitely.
Trump was first banned from the Google-owned company Jan. 12 for at least a week in wake of the riot at the US Capitol.
YouTube announced the extension of that suspension last week, before issuing yet another one Tuesday.
“In light of concerns about the ongoing potential for violence, the Donald J. Trump channel will remain suspended,” YouTube spokesperson, Ivy Choi said in a statement obtained by Politico.
“Our teams are staying vigilant and closely monitoring for any new developments.”
More than 2.79 million people were subscribed to Trump’s YouTube channel.
Former President Trump’s Facebook has also been indefinitely suspended, Facebook COO Sheryl Sandberg announced this month.
“Our ban is indefinite. We’ve said at least through the transition, but we have no plans to lift it,” she said.
Sandberg went on to say she was personally in favor of the ban, arguing that it “shows the president is not above the policies we have.”
In early January, Trump was permanently banned from Twitter, his preferred communication tool, after they accused the former commander in chief of “being received and interpreted” to be inciting violence.
“After close review of recent Tweets from the @realDonaldTrump account and the context around them — specifically how they are being received and interpreted on and off Twitter — we have permanently suspended the account due to the risk of further incitement of violence,” the company said in a statement.
