Shopify, the company that powers e-commerce sites for more than one million merchants, said on Thursday that it had closed two online stores tied to President Trump, including those run by the Trump Organization and the Trump campaign.
A company representative said that the sites violated a policy that prohibits the support of organizations or people “that threaten or condone violence to further a cause.” Users who navigated to sites like TrumpStore.com and shop.donaldjtrump.com were met with messages that the sites were unavailable.
Cached versions of the sites show that they had sold merchandise like $45 pairs of Trump-branded champagne flutes, $30 “Make America Great Again” hats and a $24 poster of a cartoon of Mr. Trump punching into the air.

Shopify, which said that it “does not tolerate actions that incite violence,” still appeared to be powering other sites selling Trump merchandise as of Thursday afternoon.
