Democratic presidential candidate Tom Steyer purchased the website domain of President Trump’s reelection campaign slogan and is using it to troll him.
Steyer, a billionaire philanthropist, purchased and repurposed the URL bearing Trump’s signature catchphrase for 2020, “ Keep America Great.” When users visit the website, they are directed to a bright yellow page featuring the words “TRUMP IS A FRAUD & A FAILURE” in large letters across the screen.
“Donald Trump failed as a businessman,” smaller text reads. “He borrowed billions, and left a trail of bankruptcy and broken promises. He hasn’t changed. Tom Steyer is running for president because unlike other candidates, he can go toe-to-toe with Donald Trump on the economy and expose him for what he is – a fraud and a failure.”
The website, which says it is paid for by Steyer’s campaign at the bottom, also allows visitors to purchase a bumper sticker that declares Trump a “fraud and a failure” for $1.
“Trump’s campaign prides itself on hoarding websites of political opponents, but they forgot to pick up the URL for their signature re-election slogan, ‘Keep America Great,’” the Steyer campaign said in a Monday email.
Trump’s reelection campaign has used the same tactic as Steyer. His campaign purchased the domain name TodosConBiden.com. Joe Biden’s campaign used the phrase, which means “All for Biden” in Spanish, for its outreach to Latino voters. The website now redirects to a page that reads, “Oops, Joe forgot about Latinos. Joe is all talk.” The page also has a link to a “Latinos for Trump” website.
