YouTube has suspended President Trump's account for at least seven days, citing an "ongoing potential for violence" around the results of the 2020 presidential election.

The temporary ban would last until at least the inauguration of President-elect Joe Biden on January 20.

The suspension was the result of a video Trump shared on Wednesday, during which he told reporters that his speech before the riot was "totally appropriate" and said that the current push to impeach him a second time in Congress was only driving more division and "tremendous anger" in the nation.

During a speech on Wednesday in Texas at the border wall with Mexico, Trump reiterated that he does not condone violence or rioting and called for peace.

"As I have consistently said throughout my administration, we believe in respecting America's history and traditions, not tearing them down," Trump said.
