We can now, collectively, give Trump an ultimatum - stop spreading hate or fund your own demise. Either way, we win." - Xander Schultz, Founder of Defeat By Tweet
NEW YORK (PRWEB) June 26, 2020
Several organizations have come together to launch a donation-based initiative that aims to turn Donald Trump’s controversial Twitter platform against him. Defeat By Tweet allows people to pledge a small money donation every time Trump tweets. Donations will all be in Trump’s name and go directly towards the Justice Fund, a group of 15 Black-led political organizations, such as Color of Change PAC and Black Voters Matters Fund, aiming to remove him from office and implement policies that will help their communities. For each tweet Trump sends, he will immediately receive an automated reply that a donation in his name has been made.
The encouraged donation amount is between $.01 to $.10 per tweet. Trump is averaging 30 tweets per day or 900 tweets per month. If the initiative gets 1,000,000 people to donate on average $.02 per tweet, he will be contributing $18 million in monthly donations to these organizations. Hedge-fund billionaire Mike Novogratz has already pledged $1M - or about $250 per tweet until the election - to the initiative.
“One of the most important things we can do as a country is to provide Black community organizers with the resources they need to gain more political power and elect the local, state, and federal leaders they deserve,” said Xander Schultz, social justice entrepreneur and founder of Defeat By Tweet. “Trump has stoked racism and bigotry throughout his presidency, so I thought it would be amazing if we all came together to ensure every one of his tweets provides Black-led political organizers the funds they need to boot him out of office. We can now, collectively, give Trump an ultimatum - stop spreading hate or fund your own demise. Either way, we win.”
“Getting out the vote is where change starts,” said Mike Novogratz, Philanthropist & CEO of Galaxy Investment Partners. “This is the most effective and fun way to support criminal justice reform - and watching the Orange One contribute to his own demise will be joyful.”
The initiative will be launching on June 26, 2020 and run until election day in November. Collaborating organizations include One for Democracy Action Fund, Momentum, The SOZE Agency, Liquid Soul, Movement Voter PAC, The Social Good Club, and TaskForce. American actor and model, Noah Centineo, and English YouTuber and author, Alfie Deyes, are among the celebrity partners helping spread the word.
