Presidential domain name grabbers

23 December 2019

Billionaire and Democratic presidential candidate Tom Steyer has bought the domain name keepamericagreat.com, the slogan for President Donald Trump’s 2020 campaign.

Moreover, the site www.keepamericagreat.com directs users to purchase Steyer bumper stickers that read “Trump is a fraud and a failure.”

Trump has made a habit out of snatching website domains from rivals, preventing them from using the URLs. After Joe Biden announced his Latino outreach imitative “Todos Con Biden,” in October, Trump’s campaign bought the site todosconbiden.com. The URL directs to a page that reads “Oops, Joe forgot about Latinos” and a link to the “Latinos for Trump” campaign site.

In 2015 Trump purchased the namesake domain of then-opponent Jeb Bush, JebBush.com, and had it redirect to the Trump’s website.

It seems everything is fair in love, war and politics.
