YouTube late on Tuesday announced that it has blocked President Donald Trump’s official channel from uploading new content for at least a week, citing potential violence since deadly insurrection on the U.S. Capitol on January 6 by his supporters.

Trump posted a new video on Tuesday, warning that impeaching him over the deadly Capitol assault would be “very dangerous for the USA.”

It was part of the remarks he made to reporters before that were uploaded to the president’s YouTube channel on Tuesday.

“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 tweeted on Tuesday. “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.”

President Trump has now been suspended from YouTube, Twitter, Facebook and elsewhere for inciting a mob to storm the U.S. Capitol and declaring that his incitement was “totally appropriate.”

The House of Representatives is moving ahead with impeachment later today, making Trump the only American president to be impeached twice.
