Amazon-Owned Company Bans Trump

Twitch, a video and gaming streaming platform owned by Amazon, temporarily banned President Donald Trump over what it called “hateful conduct,” according to Fox News.

The Jeff Bezos-owned company took the action after a 2015 speech by Trump was aired on the platform.

“Hateful conduct is not allowed on Twitch. In line with our policies, President Trump’s channel has been issued a temporary suspension from Twitch for comments made on stream, and the offending content has been removed,” said a company spokesperson.

Similarly, permanently banned the channel “The_Donald,” a pro-Trump group with over 700,000 members. That decision was made on Monday, Fox News noted.

Trump’s campaign responded with a simple request that fans follow the President directly: “To hear directly from the President, people should download the Trump app and text ‘Trump’ to 88022.”
