After a suspension that lasted more than two years, the YouTube account that belonged to former President Donald Trump has reportedly now finally been brought back online.
After the demonstrations at the Capitol Building on January 6, 2021, during which YouTube and other social media companies claimed that President Trump had incited violence, he has been prevented from publishing videos on social media platforms.
According to a statement that was supplied to Axios by Leslie Miller, Vice President of Public Affairs at YouTube, the account is no longer restricted and the ability to upload new content is restored.
The videos on the Trump account that were taken from the site after January 6 for allegedly encouraging violence will not be reinstated by YouTube, which is a part of Google.
Advertisements on YouTube will soon be available to be purchased byTrump, who is running to be the nominee of the Republican Party for president in 2024.
The content moderators defended their contentious choice, stressing that they did not want to engage in the discourse around elections and pointing out that the decision had been approved by an oversight body.
Following the results of an informal poll that the billionaire entrepreneur conducted with his audience, Twitter CEO Elon Musk decided to readmit Donald Trump to the platform towards the tail end of the previous year.
Even if Musk were to reactivate his Twitter account, President Trump has declared that he has no intention of using the social media platform again.
After leaving office, Trump founded a social media firm called Truth Social.
Currently Trump is technically bound per the terms of his contract to upload all information to Truth Social and wait six hours before distributing the content on any other channels.
It is unclear if Trump plans on honoring this agreement going forward.
On YouTube, Trump has more than 2.6 million subscribers.
