Video uploading platform YouTube has announced it is extending Donald Trump's suspension, preventing him from publishing any videos on the account.

The Google-owned platform also removed former New York Mayor Rudy Giuliani from its Partner Program, allowing content creators to earn revenue from advertising.

Earlier this month, YouTube announced it had banned Trump from uploading new content indefinitely.

YouTube said at the time it had removed new content from Trump’s official channel and blocked new videos from being uploaded for a "*minimum*" of a week.

In addition, comments on Trump's videos will remain disabled indefinitely.

A YouTube spokesperson told CNET:

“In light of concerns about the ongoing potential for violence, the Donald J. Trump channel will remain suspended."

"Our teams are staying vigilant and closely monitoring for any new developments.”

Youtube's first extension was issued last week after the platform stated it would reevaluate the situation in a week.

But a YouTube spokesperson refused to comment on the length of the suspension.

Earlier this month, 'Borat' star Sacha Baron Cohen blasted YouTube for not fully banning Trump.

Giuliani, Trump’s attorney, was accused by the platform of breaking the site’s rules by repeatedly sharing misinformation related to the presidential election.

"Widespread fraud or errors changed the outcome of a historical U.S. Presidential election" is a violation, according to Google’s policies.

Earlier this month, 'Borat' star Sacha Baron Cohen blasted YouTube for not fully banning Trump.

The actor-turned-propagandist took to Twitter to complain that YouTube is spreading Trump's alleged "election lies to MILLIONS of people!"

British "comedian" Cohen demanded that Google-owned YouTube joins the anti-Trump campaign to "save democracy" by banning the president that 75 million Americans voted for.

“Virtually every social media company has removed Trump…EXCEPT YouTube,” Cohen tweeted.

"Trump’s YouTube channel is STILL showing videos of his election lies to MILLIONS of people!”
