Twitter banned Donald Trump's account for 12 hours and deleted his tweets for the first time after praising the mob that stormed Congress and saying they "loved" her.
YouTube and Facebook also followed suit to remove the posts, and Facebook and Instagram blocked Trump from their platform for 24 hours.
Snapchat blocked him on Wednesday morning before shooting the video. The platform said their account suspension was perpetual.
One of the deleted tweets reads: “These are the things and events that happen when a holy landslide election victory is so unceremoniously and viciously deprived of great patriots who have been treated badly and unfairly for so long. Go home with love and in peace. Remember that day forever! & # 39;
In the deleted video, he poured more fuel on the fire, claimed the election was "stolen" and told the rioters that he "loved" it.
Donald Trump finally addressed his supporters in a video on Wednesday in which he continued to claim the election was stolen.
“I know your pain. I know that you are hurt We had a choice that was stolen from us, ”he said.
“It was a landslide election and everyone knows it, especially the other side, but you have to go home now. We must have peace. We must have law and order. We must respect our great people in law and order. We don't want anyone to get hurt. & # 39;
Trump said it was "a very difficult time", highlighting his personal loss.
“There has never been a time like this when something like this happened, when they could take it away from all of us, me, you, our country.
“This was a fraudulent choice, but we cannot play into the hands of these people. We must have peace. So go home
& # 39; We love you. You are something special. You saw what happened. You see how others are treated who are so bad and so angry. I know how you feel. But go home and go home in peace. & # 39;
In a shocking tweet on Wednesday, Donald Trump sent mixed messages about Washington anarchy, saying, "Remember that day forever!" and call the rioters "great patriots"
In the third tweet deleted from Twitter, Trump attacked Mike Pence for lack of courage.
The third deleted tweet, posted a few hours before the others, attacked Mike Pence for failing to stop certifying Joe Biden's victory.
“Mike Pence did not have the courage to do what should have been done to protect our country and our constitution, and to allow states to confirm a corrected set of facts, not the fraudulent or inaccurate ones they had to certify beforehand. & # 39; he tweeted.
"USA demands the truth!"
The video and tweets were removed on Wednesday evening.
Twitter showed a picture that said, "This tweet is no longer available" and linked back to its page, which explained why tweets were blocked or warned.
Twitter said they removed the tweets for violating their "Civic Integrity Policy".
"Due to the unprecedented and ongoing violent situation in Washington, DC, we had to remove three @ realDonaldTrump tweets that were released today for repeated and serious violations of our Civic Integrity Policy," the social media company said.
& # 39; This means that @realDonaldTrump's account will be suspended for 12 hours after removing these Tweets. If the tweets are not removed, the account will remain suspended. & # 39;
Twitter has banned the president from its platform for 12 hours
Facebook has banned Trump for 24 hours
Snapchat banned the president from its website indefinitely on Wednesday morning
A Facebook spokesman said, "We have assessed two policy violations against President Trump's page that will result in a 24-hour function block, meaning he will no longer be able to post on the platform during that time."
Adam Mosseri, head of Instagram, said: "We are also blocking President Trump's Instagram account for 24 hours."
Andy Stone, another Facebook spokesman, previously told CNN Business: "The violent protests in today's Capitol are a shame."
He added: “We prohibit incitement and encourage violence on our platform. We actively review and remove content that violates these rules. & # 39;
Farshad Shadloo, YouTube spokesperson, said in an email to Insider: & # 39; We removed a video that was posted on Donald Trump's channel this afternoon that violates our guidelines regarding content alleged to be widespread or fraudulent Represent errors and have changed the US 2020 result.
"We allow copies of this video if it is uploaded with additional context and sufficient educational, documentary, scientific or artistic value (EDSA)."
And Rachel Racusen told The Information that Trump's Snapchat account was also banned.
"We can confirm that earlier today we blocked President Trump's Snapchat account," she said in a statement.
He won't be able to share any new content until Snap decides to lift the restriction, she said, noting that his account was suspended on Wednesday before he posted the video about the "stolen" elections.
Twitter, Facebook, and YouTube have flagged content previously posted by the president with warnings from last year, particularly his allegations about election fraud and COVID-19.
During the 2020 presidential election, the platforms tagged dozens of Trump's tweets making false or misleading claims of election fraud.
However, this appears to be the first time Twitter has flagged a tweet as "risk of violence".
A woman died on Wednesday when a crowd of angry Trump supporters broke through the Capitol and entered the chambers of the House and Senate.
The Senate was evacuated at 2:30 p.m.
There are more than 2,000 Capitol Police officers with special jurisdiction on the Capitol Grounds. But they were overrun when protesters pounded through a window and entered the building.
The Capitol Police were seen by Trump supporters on the first floor of the Capitol building absorbing violent lunges.
Police from neighboring Montgomery County, Maryland, were also brought near the Capitol, CNN reported.
Washington DC Mayor Muriel Bowser had mobilized National Guard troops prior to the pro-Trump rally in what was dubbed the "Stop the Steal" event – despite the fact that this coincided with the legislative efforts of Congress to get the vote count college.
The entire DC National Guard should be activated within hours, the Washington Post reported, after Bowser on duty asked to be sent to the Capitol.
Bowser also imposed a 6 p.m. curfew on Washington.
