The unprecedented censorship of President Donald Trump and his campaign continued as the team’s ability to reach supporters through emails has been blocked.

Shortly after the president and his campaign were permanently banned from Twitter, their email service provider suspended the account’s connection to millions of supporters.  Campaign Monitor, the company used by the president’s campaign team, confirmed the move to the Financial Times.

“The self-service account associated with the Donald Trump Campaign has been suspended as of today, January 7th, 2021,” Campaign Monitor said in a statement.

“Typically, political campaigns use multiple email service providers to send campaign, fundraising and other emails. Based on the low volume of emails that had been sent from the Campaign Monitor account, this is likely a very small portion of total email activity from the campaign,” the company claimed.

Dave Lee of the Financial Times noted in a tweet that there “hasn’t been any Trump emails for more than 48 hours.”

“Almost unheard of — he sent 33 in the first six days of Jan; 2,500+ last year,” he added.

Others also noted the frequency of campaign emails and the fact that none have been received since the reported suspension.

Lee apparently looked into the situation more closely.

He later emphasized that Trump “has not been banned from sending emails,” but just from Campaign Monitor’s server, noting that the Trump team uses other providers who may not have made a decision to cut access.

The moves by Big Tech to cut off the President of the United States from multiple platforms, as well as targeting conservative accounts, has been met with glee by the left. But, as many of Trump’s supporters jettisoned their accounts in backlash, others warned about the larger implications.

Conservative talk show host Rush Limbaugh deactivated his Twitter account which reportedly had 88.6 million followers and others noted the purge of followers on their accounts.

Actress and model Emily Ratajkowski called out “big tech’s rollout of censorship” earlier this week following the storming of the U.S. Capitol.

“This gives Facebook/tech/Zuck THE MOST POWER. If he can shut the president up/off he can shut any of us up/off,” she tweeted.
