This is stated in an email to advertisers

According to


, Google is taking the step because of the storming of the Capitol in Washington by supporters of the incumbent President Donald Trump.

It is unclear when the ban will be lifted.

Advertisers must not "refer to political candidates, the US presidential election, impeachment of the incumbent president, the inauguration of the new president, the violence around the Capitol, or new protest plans."

The ban applies to all Google advertising platforms.

In general, the company also says it is paying close attention to ads that try to incite hatred or violence.

Google temporarily banned political advertising in November around the US election, which took place on November 3.

That ban was lifted in December.
