Stripe bans Trump compaign collections

Is there any website that Trump can use?

US president Donald "fight for me" Trump is suddenly finding himself without a means to collect money for his next campaign bid.

According to the Wall Street Journal, Stripe will no longer process payments for President Trump's campaign website.  The move follow's a call from Trump and his family to "fight for him" which is widely seen as causing his followers to storm the Senate leading to several deaths including a copper.

Stripe handles card payments for millions of online businesses and e-commerce platforms, including Trump's campaign website and online fundraising apparatus. Stripe is cutting off the president's campaign account for violating its policies against encouraging violence, the people said.

Stripe asks users to agree that they won't accept payments for "high risk" activities, including for any business or organisation that "engages in, encourages, promotes or celebrates unlawful violence or physical harm to persons or property", according to its website.

However the move is part of a general shunning of the President by tech companies and the starving of him of publicity. Deplatforming of the president has effectively removed Trump from all social media outlets including Snap, Facebook, Twitter, Pinterest, Spotify and TikTok.
