In a move that may seem to be karmic retribution to sane people, defecting Trump donors are finding themselves unable to cancel their recurring campaign contributions. “Who in their right mind is donating money to a self-proclaimed ‘billionaire’?” you might be asking. Well, people like this poor soul who tweeted at CNN’s Jeremy Diamond with a plea for help:
A scouring of The Donalds website turns up no discernible way of cancelling your tithing to the Tangerine Tyrant. There is an option to “update” your card information but you cannot delete it or input an invalid card number. The email confirmation you receive after setting up your donation only offers an “unsubscribe” link and no way of contacting the campaign for issues with payments. For regretful backers there only seems to be 2 options; cancel your card through your bank or grab your ankles and let the withdrawals continue…indefinitely.
Meanwhile over at Hillary Clintons website things seem to be a little bit more on the up and up. When you pledge your donation to the Clinton campaign, the confirmation email includes an inbox to send any questions about your contribution to. Additionally, on the website itself there is a very clear way to remove your card information altogether.
In their own investigation of the scam, news website Mic was unable to attain a comment from the Trump campaign despite several attempts at contacting them.
Don’t worry, ex-Trumpers and Trumpettes, Surely the campaign has some people with very good brains working on this clearly accidental oversight.
