The fallout from the events of January 6th is evolving, and growing increasingly perturbed.
We’re no longer in the thick of it, wondering what could possibly happen next. We’ve taken a step back, and we’ve begun to search for the path forward.
This means that the reaction to the President’s words and action in vicinity of the event will be under a microscope, and the shifting viewpoints surrounding what exactly happened at the Capitol could make it difficult for Trump and his family to reattain their previous lifestyle.
For instance, Trump is now facing trouble from the financial sector, as a number of online payment portals have blacklisted him.
Online-store platform Shopify has removed all of President Donald Trump’s campaign merchandise from its platform, saying those web pages violated the Canadian company’s policy against sellers promoting violence.
Both Trump merchandise websites — trumpstore.com and shop.donaldjtrump.com — were disabled Thursday. Soon after, Shopify said in a statement that it “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,” said Shopify, which had been hosting Trump’s store.
Paypal has elicited a similar response, but, going further, has also suspended the accounts that may have been used to organize and fund travel to the Capitol.
