La société de technologie basée à San Francisco, Salesforce, a confirmé que l'une de ses filiales avait empêché le Comité national républicain d'envoyer des e-mails de collecte de fonds, citant les événements du 6 janvier au Capitole américain. </p><div><p><em>«Nous sommes tous profondément troublés par les terribles événements du 6 janvier. Et si nous espérons tous qu’ils ne se reproduiront jamais, il reste malheureusement un risque de violence incitée politiquement à travers le pays».</em> Salesforce a déclaré dans un communiqué.
“The Republican National Committee is a long-standing client, predating the current administration, and we have taken steps to prevent its use of our services in any way that could lead to violence,” the company added.

The statement was sent to Vice, who asked questions after noticing that President Donald Trump’s campaign emails suddenly stopped. It was not clear whether the « action » was permanent or if service would be restored at a later date.
Joined by Vice, the RNC said they “Independently decided to stop fundraising on all of our digital platforms, including Salesforce,” last Wednesday.
The Trump Make America Great Again Committee is a joint venture between the RNC and organizations called Save America and Donald J. Trump for President, Inc. It used the services of ExactTarget, an email marketing company owned by Salesforce. Another provider, Campaign Monitor, also “Suspended” their story last week, after the turmoil at the U.S. Capitol.
Several hundred Trump supporters broke into the Capitol building and disrupted the joint session of Congress to certify Democrat Joe Biden as the next US president. Democrats were quick to describe the unrest as a terrorist attack, accusing Trump of “Incitement to insurgency” and even demanded his second indictment.
However, a number of Republican lawmakers and party officials joined in denouncing the president. The party also did not protest when Facebook and Twitter suspended and then banned Trump altogether. The wave of corporate and social media “Cancellations” has only grown bigger since then, whatever.

The Salesforce statement uses the same reasoning Twitter used to justify the final removal of Trump, saying some of his tweets could be interpreted by some people as inciting violence.
Speak, the social media app that Trump supporters flocked to after the Twitter purges, was first banned from Apple and Google app stores and then taken offline by Amazon’s cloud service. He has sought redress in federal court, but remains unavailable Monday night.
Marc Benioff, CEO of Salesforce, has been known for years as a social justice activist. In November 2019, Politico described him as “The tech CEO ‘woke up’ before the ‘wake up’ was one thing.”
