Facebook Inc and Alphabet Inc’s YouTube took down a video from President Donald Trump on Wednesday that continued to make the baseless claim the election was fraudulent as he told protesters who had stormed the U.S. Capitol to go home.

Facebook’s vice president of integrity Guy Rosen tweeted the social media company had taken down the video because “on balance we believe it contributes to rather than diminishes the risk of ongoing violence.”

Twitter Inc also restricted users from retweeting the video “due to a risk of violence,” as hundreds of protesters sought to force Congress to undo the president’s election loss to Democratic president-elect Joe Biden.
