Twitch Bans President Donald Trump’s Channel for “Hateful Conduct”



Twitch has temporarily banned the Twitch account for President Donald Trump for “hateful conduct” which is a result from footage of the president’s speeches, according to USA Today.

According to the report, one of the violations was a rebroadcast of a presidential campaign rally from 2015, when Trump described immigrants crossing over the border to the United States, from Mexico.

“They’re sending people that have lots of problems, and they’re bringing those problems with us,” Trump said, in the now removed video. “They’re bringing drugs. They’re bringing crime. They’re rapists. And some, I assume, are good people.”

Not only was that video removed, but the broadcast of Trump’s rally in Tulsa, Oklahoma earlier this month was removed as well. During that rally, Trump hypothetically described concerns about “a very tough hombre” breaking into homes.

“Hateful conduct is not allowed on Twitch. In line with our policies, President Trump’s channel has been issued a temporary suspension from Twitch for comments made on stream, and the offending content has been removed,” a Twitch spokesperson said, according to Fox News’ Brian Flood.

“In line with our policies, President Trump’s channel has been issued a temporary suspension from Twitch for comments made on stream, and the offending content has been removed,” said Brielle Villablanca, a Twitch spokesperson, according to CNN.

Twitch is cracking down on Twitch channels that violate their TOS guidelines, and have removed high profile streamers, such as Dr Disrespect, recently. With President Donald Trump now feeling the impact of Twitch’s crackdown, it appears that the streaming platform is doing a ton of housecleaning, regardless of how big, or popular a streamer is.
