Ecommerce platform Shopify has permanently banned two online storefronts selling official Donald Trump merchandise in response to the unprecedented events in Washington on Wednesday.
The sites, Shop.DonaldJTrump.com and TrumpStore.com, were unavailable as of roughly 11 a.m. ET on Thursday.
“Based on recent events, we have determined that the actions by President Donald J. Trump violate our Acceptable Use Policy, which prohibits promotion or support of organizations, platforms or people that threaten or condone violence to further a cause,” a Shopify spokesperson said in a statement.
The spokesperson noted the bans are permanent.
