Weeklong hold for posting content that “advances false claims” about outcome of presidential election.

Real America’s Voice has been suspended from YouTube for a week for posting an exclusive interview with former President Donald Trump in which he discusses the disputed 2020 presidential election.

The network shared a Monday night removal notice with Just the News that claimed the video violated YouTube’s “spam, deceptive practices and scams” policy, but did not point to specific content within the video that violated the policy.

The interview opens with Trump saying “I never admitted defeat,” in response to “Water Cooler” host David Brody asking him about the accuracy of recent headlines claiming Trump admitted he lost the 2020 election.

Trump did not claim to have proof the election was stolen. “We have a lot of things happening right now … all you have to do is read the newspapers and see what’s coming out now,” he said.

YouTube said the video included prohibited content that “advances false claims that widespread fraud, errors, or glitches changed the outcome of the U.S. 2020 presidential election.”

Trump spoke in his signature speculative style in the interview. “If the election was fraudulent, people are gonna have to make up their own minds,” he said. “It’s not gonna be up to me. It’s gonna be up to the public. It’s gonna be up to, perhaps, politicians. I don’t think there’s ever been a case like this where hundreds of thousands of votes will be found. So we’ll have to see what happens.”

But when it comes to former Mike Pence’s role, Trump said if the former vice president had kicked some states’ electoral vote counts back to their state legislatures for review, “you might very well have a different president right now.”

Real America’s Voice is banned from uploading, posting or livestreaming on YouTube for a week. A second strike will impose a two-week hold, and a third in the same 90-day period will result in the channel’s permanent removal, the notice said.

The removal “seemed a little heavy-handed and probably inappropriate,” RAV program director Roger Hudson told Just the News. Trump was “so careful not to make a judgment call” about election fraud in the interview: “He didn’t say what they said he said.”

YouTube’s fixed-period suspension is “such a wussy thing” because it will stop the network from livestreaming Trump’s Saturday rally on YouTube, “a significant loss to us,” Hudson said.

While the full interview has been removed, five clips of the interview remain live on RAV’s YouTube page. They include Trump saying “I never admitted defeat,” complaining about Pence not kicking back electoral vote counts, and claiming that American elections in retrospect “weren’t free and they weren’t fair.”

The network’s Facebook and Twitter accounts have not faced penalties, Hudson said.

Trump: ‘I have not conceded’ 2020 loss; might have ‘different president’ now if not for Pence choice

On the possibility of being reinstated as president if the 2020 contest is verified as fraudulent, Trump said such a decision would be “up to public” or “perhaps politicians.”

Former President Donald Trump said Monday that he has not conceded the 2020 presidential race, that if the election is proven fraudulent it will be up to the public and “perhaps politicians” to decide how to respond, and that if Mike Pence had sent disputed election results back to state legislatures for review the country “might very well have a different president right now.”

“No, I never admitted defeat,” Trump told Just the News’ “Water Cooler” in an exclusive interview on Real America’s Voice.

“We have a lot of things happening right now … all you have to do is read the newspapers and see what’s coming out now,” he said, adding that he has “not conceded.”

Last week during an interview with conservative commentator Sean Hannity Trump had remarked about the 2020 contest that “shockingly, we were supposed to win easily at 64 million votes and we got 75 million votes and we didn’t win, but let’s see what happens on that.”

Trump told the “The Water Cooler” host David Brody Monday that if the election was tainted by fraud any decision on reinstating him as president would fall to the public or possibly to politicians.

“If the election was fraudulent, people are gonna have to make up their own minds,” he said. “It’s not gonna be up to me. It’s gonna be up to the public. It’s gonna be up to, perhaps, politicians. I don’t think there’s ever been a case like this where hundreds of thousands of votes will be found. So we’ll have to see what happens.”

Trump said that he is “disappointed” that former Vice President Mike Pence did not kick some states’ electoral vote counts back to their state legislatures for review, speculating that if Pence had done so there may have been a different president in office today.

“Well, I’ve always liked Mike, and I’m very disappointed that he didn’t send it back to the legislatures,” he said. “When you have more votes than you have voters in some cases and when you have the kind of things that are, that were known — in many cases they were known then, but they’re certainly getting better and better known now — I was disappointed that he didn’t send it back. I felt he had the right to send it back, and he should’ve sent it back. That’s my opinion. I think you would have found that you might very well have a different president right now had he sent ’em back.”

Trump ‘very disappointed’ with Justices Kavanaugh, Coney Barrett votes to save Obamacare

“I fought very hard for them,” Trump told Just the News’ “Water Cooler” in an exclusive interview on Real America’s Voice.

Former President Trump said Monday that he’s “very disappointed” with recent votes by Justices Brett Kavanaugh and Amy Coney Barrett to uphold ObamaCare.

Trump nominated Kavanaugh and Coney Barrett to the high court during his presidency and maintained unwavering support for Kavanaugh during a bitterly contested partisan confirmation battle.

“I fought very hard for them,” Trump told Just the News’ “Water Cooler” in an exclusive interview on Real America’s Voice. “But I was very disappointed with a number of their rulings.”

The court’s nine justices voted 7-2 on June 17 to uphold the health care law in a case brought by Republican governors challenging the constitutionality of the law’s individual mandate in light of the 2017 elimination of the plan’s individual penalties for not purchasing insurance.

Trump also told show host David Brody that he’s not indulging second thoughts about having nominated the conservative justices to the court.

“Second guessing does no good,” he said. “But I was disappointed with a number of rulings that they made.”
