Stripes Stop Processing Payments for Trump Campaign Website


According to people familiar with the case, Stripe Inc. will no longer process payments for President Trump’s campaign website following the riots at the Capitol last week.

The financial-technology company manages card payments for millions of online businesses and e-commerce platforms, including Mr. Trump’s campaign website and online fundraising mechanisms. People said that the Presidential campaign is cutting the campaign to violate its policies against promoting violence.

A spokesman for the Trump campaign did not immediately respond to a request for comment.

Stripe asks users to agree that they will not accept payments for “high risk” activities, including illegal violence or damage to persons or property for any business or organization “according to their website” Includes to provoke, promote or celebrate. .

The company has previously disabled accounts in the wake of violent incidents. After a gunman killed 11 people in an attack on a Pittsburgh synagogue in 2018, Striped cut off Gab.com, a right-wing social-media platform where the alleged shooter posted anti-Semitic messages.
