Canadian e-commerce platform Shopify has taken down stores selling merchandise affiliated with Donald Trump.
In a statement, the Ottawa-based company said that Trump has violated their policy against condoning and inciting violence.
“Shopify does not tolerate actions that incite violence,” a Shopify spokesperson said one day after the violence in Washington.
“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 organisations, platforms or people that threaten or condone violence to further a cause.”
“As a result, we have terminated stores affiliated with President Trump.”
The policy change means that the official store of the Trump Organization, Trumpstore.com, and the Trump campaign store, shop.donaldjtrump.com, are no longer available online.
