TrumpStore.com and Shop.DonaldJTrump.com posted error messages on Thursday.
Canada Shopify Inc. on Thursday pulled stores affiliated with U.S. President Donald Trump from its e-commerce platform, a day after hundreds of its supporters stormed the U.S. Capitol.
Trump, who has refused to concede his loss to Democratic President-elect Joe Biden had urged his supporters to come to Washington for a rally on Wednesday.
Shopify said recent events determined Trump’s actions violated his policy, which prohibits promoting or supporting organizations, platforms, or individuals who threaten or condone violence to advance a cause.
Attempts to access TrumpStore.com and Shop.DonaldJTrump.com, which sold “Make America Great Again” hats and similar items, failed on Thursday, with the website posting error messages.
Shopify’s move comes like Facebook blocked Trump’s Facebook and Instagram accounts indefinitely on Thursday, and social media platforms Twitter Inc and Snap Inc temporarily locked Trump accounts on their platforms following Wednesday’s violence.
