Reddit Bans r/donaldtrump Community

The subreddit has no official ties to outgoing President Donald Trump

The community is not an official subreddit of outgoing President Donald Trump.

Reddit took similar steps late last June, banning roughly 2,000 subreddits, including r/The_Donald, with co-founder and CEO Steve Huffman saying at the time that the community consistently fostered and upvoted more rule-breaking content than average communities, and its moderators “refused to meet our most basic expectations.”
