Donald Trump Can Post Videos As YouTube Removes Restrictions: Microsoft’s Word and Outlook Get the Support of AI Tools
YouTube, which is owned by Google, has announced the lifting of restrictions imposed on Donald Trump, the former President of the United States, following the insurrections on January 6 at the US Capitol. In today’s latest breaking news headlines from BNN, YouTube has restored the three accounts of Donald Trump. It allows the former president to launch his presidential campaign for the 2024 elections.
Other social media channels restored Trump’s accounts
Twitter and Meta have also restored the accounts of Trump, which were suspended out of fear of inciting further unrest in the nation following the insurrection at the US Capitol on January 6. Susan Wojcicki, the then-CEO of YouTube, said in 2021 that it would lift the restrictions on Donald Trump after it confirmed that the risk of inciting violence in the nation had subsided. As a result, Trump could not upload new videos to YouTube.
A chance for voters to hear from presidential candidates
In a communiqué, Leslie Miller, VP of Public Policy at YouTube, said the social media channel restored the account of Trump in a bid to ensure voters hear what presidential candidates for next year’s election can say. The channel decided to lift the restrictions after carefully evaluating the violence risk in the real world. However, the decision is a balancing act to give voters a chance to hear from their presidential candidates. According to Miller, the YouTube channel of Trump is subjected to changing YouTube policies from time to time.
Trump’s YouTube channel has a subscriber base of more than 2.6 million
According to a communiqué from YouTube, the teams engaged in overseeing the safety and trust have carefully analyzed the factors such as violent rhetoric on various platforms and government security alerts to know that the real-world violence risk has been reduced. It was also found that the posts by Trump on YouTube are different from those on other social media platforms. The YouTube channel of Donald Trump has a follower base of over 2.6 million as of Friday.
