YouTube Lengthens Ban on Trump for Another Seven Days

(RepublicanReport.com) – When various tech companies made the move to censor Donald Trump’s content over the last few weeks, they cited the potential for him to incite violence. Now that he’s no longer president, one would imagine this alleged potential is far less. However, that apparently doesn’t mean he’ll be allowed to resume posting on social media.

On Tuesday, January 19, YouTube announced its intention to ban Trump’s account for at least another seven days. In addition, he’s already been banned permanently by Twitter and indefinitely by Facebook. Despite the millions of voters who want his guidance and support, Donald Trump has effectively been silenced by the tech industry.

Censorship isn’t a new issue within big tech companies, especially when it comes to conservative voices. Now that Trump has left the Oval Office, it’s hard to say how far these continued attempts at silencing conservatives will go. Instead of bringing us closer together, it seems the current censorship is only creating further division among Americans.
