Twitch suspends Trump campaign account

June 29, 2020. Summarized by summa-bot.

Twitch, the video streaming service popular with online gamers, has suspended an account belonging to the Trump campaign, becoming the latest tech platform to take action against President Donald Trump.

"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 a Twitch spokesperson, who requested anonymity out of concern for safety issues that might arise if they were named in connection with the company's decision.

The content that Twitch said violated its policies on hate included a video of Trump's 2016 campaign rally in which he called Mexicans rapists and criminals.

Video of that rally was recently rebroadcast on Twitch, the company said.

Another video that Twitch said violated its policies was video of Trump's recent Tulsa rally, in which Trump spoke hypothetically of "a very tough hombre" breaking into the house of a "young woman. "
