Trump Campaign Texts Are Being Flagged As Spam: What You Need To Know
Here’s a breakdown on why the Trump campaign is reportedly fighting with the wireless carriers and how text messages are playing a bigger role in elections.
Text messages from the Trump campaign are being flagged and blocked. The campaign argues this is a suppression of political speech.
President Donald Trump’s reelection campaign is reportedly clashing with wireless carriers Verizon, AT& T and T-Mobile over whether its text messages should be blocked as spam.
Over the July Fourth weekend, the Trump campaign’s mass text message push was blocked by anti-spam monitors that work with the wireless carriers, according to Politico. A Business Insider story added more detail about Jared Kushner, a White House senior advisor and the son-in-law of the president, and a phone call he had with the three national US wireless carriers.
The move raises questions about how effective these mass text messages — a key tool for many politicians — will be for the Trump campaign. It also shines a light on the world of peer-to-peer text messaging, which was originally designed for individuals sending a handful of messages, but has since been co-opted by political campaigns, companies and other entities — often for legitimate reasons.

Only Two Of Donald Trump’s Kids Shared Father’s Day Messages While He Ranted About ‘losers Of The World’

Just two of Donald Trump’s five children shared “Happy Father’s Day” messages on social media Sunday, while the former president’s three other children and his wife said nothing to mark the occasion.
Then late Sunday night Trump, 75, then sent out a bizarre press statement, writing, “Happy Father’s Day to all, including the Radical Left, RINOs, and other Losers of the world.”

His youngest daughter, Tiffany Trump, shared two pictures on Instagram of her and the former president.
“Happy Father’s Day, Dad!” Tiffany, 27, wrote. “I’m so grateful for your boundless love, hilarious sense of humor, and for always believing in me!”
The former president’s oldest son, Donald Trump Jr., shared an image of them sitting behind the Resolute Desk in the Oval Office. “Happy Father’s Day dad, and the same to all the amazing dads and father figures out there,” Trump Jr., 43, wrote.
Trump is the father to sons Trump Jr., Eric Trump, and Barron Trump, as well as daughters Ivanka Trump and Tiffany.
The Trump children’s involvement in their father’s political career became a trademark of his one-term presidency, although he hasn’t always been sentimental when it comes to parenting.

But Didn’t The Trump Campaign Say It Was In Compliance With The Tcpa And Fcc Guidelines
Yes, and that’s accurate. But that’s largely because the legal guidelines around these kinds of P2P text messages aren’t clear.
The TCPA and FCC have rules about abuse on autodialer systems that can automatically send messages or make phone calls. But there isn’t any guidance on these systems because they’re run by humans.
The CTIA’s statement about requiring opt-out language and prior consent are part of recommended guidelines to the industry for players like the carriers and senders like political campaigns. But the trade group has no ability to enforce these guidelines, which are more like mutually agreed upon practices than firm laws.
An upcoming may offer some guidance on the legal definition of phone spam.

Is This Really The Suppression Of Political Speech
A lot of these systems are flagged automatically or occur when customer complaints come in, so that’s a hard case to make. There’s no evidence that the carriers or their partners are flagging and blocking these messages for reasons other than preventing spam.
The telecom companies are also far more reserved when it comes to staking out a political position, with the carriers previously having praised Trump for his large corporate tax cut in 2017.
When it comes to combatting spam, the motivation is primarily driven by the need to eliminate something most people find annoying.
Things To Keep In Mind
Obviously, its not as if youre writing an instant message to one of your friends or your parents. As one would imagine, there are layers of security to go through, not to mention the fact that the Presidents staff have more critical matters to attend to, even if were talking about the PR sector.
Clearly, your message to POTUS needs to be well-constructed, following certain guidelines, and pertaining to an important matter. If you just want to say hi, dont bother sending it, although it wont hurt.
Additionally, youre much more likely to receive the response from a Presidents staff member, rather than from the Big Guy himself, so be sure to manage your expectations.
Naturally, threats , are absolutely out of the question. If the secret service, FBI, or any other government agency gets so much as a whiff of potential danger, theyll find you, arrest you, and most likely charge you. The punishment for threatening the President is severe, to say the least.

Texts Come Hours Apart With No Clear Explanation For How The Money Will Be Spent

Former President Donald Trump is out of office, and has not announced any plans to run in the future, but that hasnt stopped his political action committee from bombarding his fans with daily requests for money and other support.
Months of text messages reviewed by The Independent reveal that supporters of the former president received at least one text message per day throughout the month of May, with some texts coming mere hours apart ahead of fundraising deadlines.
The donation links route money to the Trump Make America Great Again Committee, a joint fundraising committee that splits funds between the Republican National Committee , Mr Trumps 2020 campaign for president, as well as the Save America PAC, an organisation founded by Mr Trump to fund his future political efforts.
The frequency of the calls for donations rivals that of most active political campaigns, and suggests that Mr Trump is keen on maintaining a massive war chest throughout his post-presidency that means his endorsement carries huge financial weight in any local race.
Some texts sent to supporters via the automated service are designed to appear as if they were personally written by the former president, while others are signed by Eric Trump, Donald Trump Jr, and former first lady Melania Trump.
The Independent has reached out to the office of Mr Trump for comment.
Donald Trump Really Wants You To Text His Name To 88022 But Will He Ever Text Back
At Donald Trump rallies and news conferences, the invocation is very often printed in the cameras’ lines of sight to ensure maximum exposure:
Text “Trump” to 88022
If you assumed this is a fundraising ploy, you’d be wrong. The Republican presidential front-runner is self-funding his campaign, remember?
Instead of money, Trump ostensibly wants a channel to communicate directly with voters. His website advertises “exclusive updates” for those who subscribe to the texting service.
One problem: Trump doesn’t seem to use the service very often.
Two weeks ago, on the day of the Wisconsin primary, I signed up and prepared for The Donald to Make My iPhone Great Again with the exclusive updates I had been promised. Here’s how it went.
And then … nothing for 14 days.
Last week, Fix colleague Philip Bump had the good idea to subscribe using a New York ZIP code to see whether the Trump campaign might be targeting residents of the Empire State ahead of the primary. He got nothing for five days.
Finally, on primary day Tuesday, the first exclusive updates arrived.
Later, after I asked the campaign about its use or underuse of the text line, both Bump and I received this message.
What. A. Waste.
Maybe, in another message, Trump could ask subscribers to name the No. 1 issue in the campaign: Text “A” for immigration, “B” for terrorism, “C” for trade, “D” for gun rights.
Here’s what Buell recommends:

Contact The White House By Phone
If you wish to call the President, or the White House, use the following phone numbers:
- For general comments, call 202-456-1111
- To reach the switchboard, call 202-456-1414
- For TTY/TTD, use Comments: 202-456-6213 or the Visitors Office: 202-456-2121
Lets face it, it is highly unlikely that you will get to speak with any sitting POTUS directly on the phone.
Hacktivist Group Anonymous Sends Message To Donald Trump
We have recently seen the hacker and activist group known as Anonymous released a video in which they warn people that the World War 3 is coming soon. In a new video, hacktivist group Anonymous just made a humble request to Americas President-elect Donald Trump.
In the recent video, Anonymous sent a message to Donald Trump in which Anonymous represents the people, the people who elected Donald trump to be Americas president and had said that they expect Donald Trump to make many positive changes and deliver everything that he promised.
The message goes on to blame previous Presidents. Anonymous said they all had the opportunity to show empathy and genuine care for their fellow citizen and to be remembered and respected. However, Anonymous said most of have bowed down to the wealthy, the powerful, the corrupt, big corporations and the Elite above.
Anonymous then asks Donald trump Therefore, we wonder, What will you do during your term? You have spoken about many issues during your election campaign but we are here to tell you that there are more things to worry about than building a wall
Anonymous also requested Donald trump to encourage all countries to end the wars and stop killing innocent peoples in the video.
