YouTube on Tuesday temporarily suspended US President Donald Trump's channel and removed a video for violating its policy against inciting violence. YouTube is the latest social media platform to initiate action against the president’s account, following the ban imposed by Twitter and Facebook. 

"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," YouTube said in a statement, adding that the channel is "temporarily prevented from uploading new content for a 'minimum' of 7 days".

Trump's YouTube account has 2.77 million subscribers.

Last week, the president’s Facebook and Instagram accounts were suspended following the riots at the US Capitol, with Trump being accused of inciting the violence. 

Twitter also deleted Trump’s account, banning him from what has been one of his favourite social media platforms during his presidency.
