In a move that few people saw coming, the online video platform YouTube has given former president Donald Trump his channel back as he launches his 2024 presidential campaign.
YouTube has lifted restrictions on former President Donald Trump's YouTube account. YouTube announced on Twitter that the channel is no longer restricted and can upload new material.

"This channel will continue to be subject to our policies, just like any other channel on YouTube."
