YouTube does not yet intend to unblock former US President Donald Trump's channel.

According to the platform, this will not happen as long as there is still a risk of incitement to violence.

Only when that risk has disappeared will the channel be seen again on the video website, according to YouTube boss Susan Wojcicki.

YouTube took Trump's channel offline early this year for violating YouTube policies;

Incitement to violence is prohibited on the video platform.

Trump's supporters had recently stormed the Capitol in Washington to prevent rival Joe Biden's election victory from being ratified.

Trump's channel on the platform will no longer be able to upload or live stream new videos.

After the attack on the Capitol, Twitter and Facebook, among others, also took measures against the then president.
