YouTube will reinstate former President Donald Trump’s channel once the “elevated risk of violence” has passed, the Google-owned video sharing site’s CEO said Thursday.
“We will lift the suspension of the Donald Trump channel when we determine the risk of violence has decreased,” Susan Wojcicki said at an event hosted by the Atlantic Council.
“We will turn the account back on, but when we see reduced law enforcement in capitals in the U.S. and fewer [threat] warnings,” she said. “Those would be signals to us [that it is] safe to turn the channel back on.”
