On Thursday, YouTube took down an episode of the “Full Send” podcast, in which Trump spoke about Russia’s invasion of Ukraine and once again alleged the 2020 election was fraudulent. The link to the video now renders a blank screen, which says: “This video has been removed for violating YouTube’s Community Guidelines.”
“Full Send” host Kyle Forgeard tweeted a screenshot of an email YouTube had sent his channel, which said the episode breached its “misinformation policy.”
YouTube did not specify which comments breached the policy. Google, which owns YouTube, did not immediately Insider’s requests for comment.
Twitter and Facebook booted Trump from their platforms in the wake of the Capitol riot last year, saying his posts incited violence. YouTube barred Trump from uploading new videos.
Speaking to Fox News on Thursday, Trump likened the removal to the way Russian state media censors news about the invasion of Ukraine.
“This is what they do in Russia, you know, if you look at Russia … the people in Russia don’t even know they’re fighting a war with Ukraine,” Trump said.
