The statement comes as the House gears up to vote on articles of impeachment against the president for "incitement of insurrection" for his role in last week's deadly U.S. Capitol attack. In addition to Trump, Donald Trump Jr. and Rudy Giuliani rallied the crowd and also urged them to fight against the election results.
"If you read my speech, and many people have done it and I've seen it both in the papers and in the media, on television, it's been analyzed and people thought that what I said was totally appropriate", Trump said. Under YouTube's policies, a second strike results in a two-week suspension, and a third strike results in a permanent ban.
Donald Trump has reacted with fury, after Twitter late last week extended its sanctions against the outgoing US President.
In addition, YouTube said the comment sections on Mr Trump's videos have also been disabled.
In the 11th hour of his presidency, social media giants banned President Trump's accounts. If a channel breaches YouTube policies three times within three months, it is typically permanently banned. The resolution text blames Trump's rhetoric for the U.S. Capitol breach last week where civil unrest and acts of violence took place amid otherwise peaceful protests in surrounding areas. The video-sharing app has said the content has been removed "in light of concerns about the ongoing potential for violence".
Trump's reaction: The president earlier Tuesday lashed out at tech companies for suspending and restricting his accounts, saying in his first remarks to reporters since the riot that tech companies had done a "horrible thing for our country and to our country".
Twitter Inc, Facebook Inc, Facebook-owned Instagram, Alphabet Inc-owned Google, Apple Inc and Amazon.com Inc took their strongest actions yet against Trump to limit his reach.
Twitter followed by permanently barring Trump's account on its service, depriving him of his favourite social media platform where he had 88 million followers.
