How Trump Has Changed Social Media Forever

YouTube extended U.S. President Donald Trump’s temporary suspension for another week, citing the possibility he could incite violence during the transition of power to President-Elect Joe Biden.

“In light of concerns about the ongoing potential for violence, the Donald J. Trump channel will be prevented from uploading new videos or livestreams for an additional minimum of seven days,” a spokesman wrote in an email. “As we shared previously, comments will continue to be indefinitely disabled under videos from the channel.” CNBC reported the extension earlier.
