Jeff Bezos has temporarily banned President Trump’s account on Twitch that is a streaming platform owned by Amazon. He banned Trump because of hateful conduct against stemming from footage of the president’s speeches.

Twitch spokesperson told Fox News that on Twitch hateful content is not allowed and it’s our policy that we do not publish any hateful conduct. So, President Trump channel has been suspended temporarily basis on Twitch for comments made on stream. Also, we have been removed the offending content.

At the start of his 2015 election campaign, Trump publicly criticized people crossing the Mexican border into the United States illegally. And his comments at the Tulsa rally in the recent term were flagged off by the Twitch.

When asked for the comments on Trump’s re-election campaign director of communications Tim Murtaugh. If you want to hear Trump directly then you should have to download the Trump app and Text Trump on to 88022.

Twitch told Fox News that in 2019 when he joined the platform it warned the Trump campaign that it would make him adhere to the platform’s terms of service and guidelines.

Here are some mention community guidelines and the hateful conduct rules which are as follows. Twitch does not promote any hateful conduct content or activity that promotes, encourages, or facilitates discrimination, denigration, objectification, harassment.

Twitch gives some specific examples that Trump rhetoric and that are given below:

On Twitch Trump once said in a clip and recently its broadcast that Mexico when sends its people, they’re not sending their best. They’re not sending you. They’re not sending you. They are just sending those people who have lots of problems. They are sent to me with all their problems. Bringing drugs with them. They are bringing crime. They are rapists. In addition, I assume, that they are very good people But if I talk to the border guards. They tell us what we’re getting. This all makes common sense. It only makes common sense that they are sending us not the right people.

On Twitch, here is another example of Tulsa rally that came from Trump recently, Hey! now it’s 1:00 o’clock in the morning and a very tough. I have to use the word on occasion, hombre, a very tough hombre is breaking into the window of a young woman. That young lady whose husband is away as a traveling salesman or whatever he may do. And you were worried and make a call to 911 and they say this number is not working I am sorry at this time. There are many examples and also you have many cases like that, many, many, many. Whether you are sleeping, you are a woman, you are boy, or you are an old man. It happened with everyone on a daily basis.

Twitch is the free service launched by Amazon. A lot of users are there to live streaming and playing games and the rest of other users are there to watch, more than 9 billion hours users were logged since 2019 and watched content. Last year Trump’s campaign created an account and use this platform by streaming the rallies and other events.
