Sometimes you just have to say enough is enough.
That’s what UK based email vendor Adestra did to Donald Trump this weekend when they suspended him for committing some of the most egregious spamming in the history of the Internet in an effort to save his broke campaign.
The Republican nominee is so desperate to get money for his cash-strapped campaign that he is literally spamming people all around the freaking globe begging them for donations even though he could easily open his own wallet and spend some of his own billions.
Most of the emails are being snapped up by spam filters, however, even that is drawing major attention from the email vendor industry because the fact that Trump’s trash emails are getting caught by spam filters at a rate of 79 percent is considered extremely high.
Looks like only 21 percent of the recipients of Trump’s desperation plea actually are fine with getting junk mail from Trump. Either that or they just don’t have their spam filters set up properly.
Indeed, Trump sent around 60 million emails to people all over the world, including foreign leaders, which may have broken FEC regulations. The shear amount of spamming caused the email vendor Trump was using to shut him down, at least from using the one vendor.
According to Campaigns and Elections,
Adestra, a U.K.-based email service platform, confirmed to C&E that within the last 48 hours it suspended service to Paramount Communication Group, the Beltway-based company working directly with Trump’s digital team who was reselling the platform’s services.
“Adestra, a leading global provider of innovative marketing technology software and services, has suspended services to one of its agency clients, which recently sent an email on behalf of the Trump Campaign,” Henry Hyder-Smith, co-founder and CEO of Adestra, said in a statement. “The email in question has raised serious security and legal concerns among Adestra and other industry leaders.”
Hyder-Smith added: “If we believe that a client is misusing the platform or not adhering to the high standards to which Adestra is committed, we may exercise our contractual option to suspend their service from sending email while still allowing them access to our products and their data.
As Trump gets more desperate for cash, people should expect their spam folders to become full to capacity. Adestra is not the only email vendor Trump has been using. But this definitely demonstrates just how bad things are going for the Trump campaign and the Republican Party, which still hasn’t seen any money given to down-ticket GOP candidates from their presidential candidate. And with many red states starting to lean blue for the first time in decades because of Trump, that just creates a steeper cliff for Republicans to climb if they want to control anything after the election in November.
