E-Commerce Platform Shopify Terminates Trump Web Stores

E-Commerce platform Shopify has been both the Trump campaign and Trump organization web stores following the storming of the U.S. Capitol earlier this week.

Both stores which sold official Trump MAGA hats, T-Shirts and other merchandise have been taken offline.

Shopify explained in a statement “Shopify does not tolerate actions that incite violence. 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.”

“As a result, we have terminated stores affiliated with President Trump,” the statement concludes.
