YouTube Bans some of President Trump's campaign ads

YouTube has prevented President Donald Trump from running a number of ads on its platform this election season, but the exact reasons for the decisions are unclear.
YouTube Bans some of President Trump's campaign ads

In a report on Sunday, CBS's "60 Minutes" said it found more than 300 Trump campaign ads have been taken down from YouTube and Google this year. In an interview, YouTube CEO Susan Wojcicki told CBS that more information about the ads can be found on Google's ad transparency website.

Wojcicki's response however underscores how little information Google provides to users about ads that have been removed. Ads that have been taken down, for example, cannot be viewed in the ad transparency tool due to what Google's website says are "technical limitations." Users can only see that a particular ad has been blocked not its content.

Twitter has also announced plans to ban politicians and SuperPACs from advertising on its platform. Facebook has drawn scrutiny for allowing politicians to run false ads.

According to CNN, Donald Trump is the man no one in Britain wants to dance with.

Donald Trump is a very unpopular man in the UK. Which is unfortunate, given he's here for the next couple of days for a meeting of NATO leaders.

Visits of the US President are hard to predict, but Trump's last two trips to Britain followed a pattern.
First, there's the build-up, in which political groups across the spectrum announce their plans to protest against Trump as soon as he sets foot on British soil.
Then there's the President's obligatory dig at Sadiq Khan, the popular Mayor of London, over the city's knife crime epidemic. He might skip that tradition this time, given the deadly terror attack that took place in London last week. But his dislike of Khan is profound, and it could be too tempting. CNN REPORT.
