Google and YouTube Remove Hundreds of Trump Ads

Google and YouTube have taken down hundreds of video advertisements for President Trump in recent months, CBS News’s “60 Minutes” reports.

In a review of the tech giant’s advertising archives, the newsmagazine found that more than 300 video advertisements for the president had been removed, primarily during the summer, for violating policies.

When pressed during a sit-down interview on whether Trump ads had been removed, YouTube CEO Susan Wojcicki said that there were “ads of President Trump that were not approved to run on Google or YouTube.”

She told longtime “60 Minutes” correspondent Lesley Stahl that the ads are “available in our transparency report.”

The CEO did point out that it is difficult to police because all politicians accuse the other one of lying and actively stretch the truth.
