YouTube has suspended Right Side Broadcasting Network from its platform and removed the news site’s videos of former President Donald Trump’s rallies.
YouTube took down the videos because the footage allegedly violated the platform’s Community Guidelines, according to RSBN.
Trump’s most recent rally in Ohio reached over three million views on RSBN’s channel before it was removed. The channel won’t be able to upload any new content for one week.
YouTube claims RSBN violated its policy regarding "spam, deceptive practices and scams."
The platform says it removes content that "take[s] advantage of the YouTube community" prohibits content where the “main purpose is to trick others into leaving YouTube for another site."
RSBN will air Trump's Saturday rally in Florida on Rumble and the broadcasting network's mobile app.
Trump himself recently joined Rumble after YouTube suspended his official channel in January.
“1/ 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,” YouTube said in a tweet, referring to the platform’s “strike” system.
“2/ Given the ongoing concerns about violence, we will also be indefinitely disabling comments on President Trump’s channel, as we’ve done to other channels where there are safety concerns found in the comments section…”
Trump’s account remains suspended, and YouTube does not plan to reinstate the channel anytime soon.
"’In light of concerns about the ongoing potential for violence, the Donald J. Trump channel will remain suspended,’" YouTube told USA TODAY at the time. “The suspension prevents the uploading of new videos or livestreams to the channel. Comments on the channel, which has nearly 2.8 million subscribers, are also disabled indefinitely.”
