The service reported that Trump's account was blocked due to violations of company policy amid fears of additional violence after the attack on the U.S. Capitol.
The Google-owned video-sharing service warned that these actions would count as an initial strike against Trump’s account.
“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,” the statement said.
The company, however, did not specify what was the exact content that violated its policies.
As we reported earlier, German Chancellor Angela Merkel finds the blocking of U.S. President Donald Trump's accounts on social networks "problematic".
"The chancellor finds it problematic that the president's accounts have been blocked," reads the message.
Berlin believes that Trump has the right to freedom of speech under the current law.
