Google’s Play store is declining to distribute Donald Trump’s Truth Social app, saying the network still needs to resolve the fact that it hosts violent threats and other content that goes against Google’s standards.

Alphabet Inc.-owned Google said it notified Truth Social of its violations and how to fix them on Aug. 19. “Having effective systems for moderating user-generated content is a condition of our terms of service for any app,” a Google spokesperson said in a statement.
