Twitter has permanently banned former Trump advisor Steve Bannon after he called for the beheading of FBI director Christopher Wray and leading pandemic expert Anthony Fauci in a YouTube video - which has now been removed.
Steve Bannon served as the chief strategist to Donald Trump, Money Control reported.
Even as several key states still being too close to call, Bannon falsely claimed President Trump had won elections.
Speaking on why Trump should have a second term, Bannon suggested firing Wray and Fauci and said, "I’d actually like to go back to the old times of Tudor England, I’d put the heads on pikes, right, I’d put them at the two corners of the White House as a warning to federal bureaucrats,” as quoted by a TechCrunch report.
According to the report, Twitter has confirmed that it has “permanently suspended” the account associated with Brannon for violating its rules against glorifying violence.
The video has also been removed on YouTube from “Steve Bannon’s War Room” channel. “We’ve removed this video for violating our policy against inciting violence. We will continue to be vigilant as we enforce our policies in the post-election period,” a representative of YouTube was quoted as saying.
