A few days after attack in the Capitol of USA, the American company software Salesforce says it has taken steps to prevent the Republican National Committee (RNC) from sending emails which could lead to violence, although the company explained that it would not say exactly what these measures are. RNC uses ExactTarget, one tool of Salesforce, for email campaign.
The Salesforce move, first announced by Motherboard, comes after his campaign mission Tramp, urging supporters to "go up NOW" and "defend the integrity of these elections" shortly before the January 6 violence at the Capitol.
Salesforce has confirmed to The Verge that it has not removed RNC from its client. Specifically, a company representative stated the following: "The National Committee of Republicans is a long-term client, leading the current Administration. "We have taken steps to prevent the use of our services in any way that could lead to violence."
However, the software company refused to explain exactly what measures it has taken, but also to say whether its move could affect Trump's campaign, as well as the RNC.
Prior to the attack, Trump's campaign sent e-mails about election fraud, saying the results should be overturned. In particular, the campaign sent 569 emails between November 3 and January 6. Each email asked Trump supporters to donate money to the campaign. Although it is not known how long the ExactTarget email list was, in 2018, Trump's campaign had contact information for 20 million supporters.
RNC told Motherboard that it had decided to halt its digital fundraising efforts on January 6. The next day, another email service - Campaign Monitor - suspended Trump's campaign account. This in itself would make it more difficult for the campaign to raise money.
The SOCIAL MEDIA platforms are also taking action against Trump after the Capitol attack. Specifically, on January 7, the Facebook expelled the former US President from his platform indefinitely, while on January 8, the Twitter permanently deleted his account.
