Donald J. Trump

Warning Label

YouTube censors Trump campaign ad: The Donald J. Trump For President YouTube channel posted a one minute campaign ad called "Starting Day One," which explained why Trump is the only candidate who can "make America great again" starting on day one, unlike the "Trump imposters" who are running against him. YouTube applied a label to this video with a heading of "Context," and a link to a Wikipedia page titled "2020 United States Elections." The label read "The 2020 United States elections were held on Tuesday, November 3, 2020. The Democratic Party’s nominee, former vice president Joe Biden, defeated incumbent Republican president Donald Trump in the presidential election. Despite losing seats in the House of Representatives, Democrats retained control of the House and gained control of the Senate." It is unclear why YouTube applied this label to this video, as it did not discuss the 2020 election at all.
