The subreddit called The_Donald was the most popular community devoted to supporters of the president and included more than 790,000 users who often use the space to post political memes and videos.

Topics: Trump

Reddit executives have accused the group of targeting and harassing individuals and consistently breaking its conduct rules.“Reddit is a place for community and belonging, not for attacking people,” Steve Huffman, the company’s chief executive told reporters on Monday.

Reddit banned multiple other accounts for violating their policies, as well, though some have accused the company of using a mass ban to cover up a bias against the Trump community."Reddit's ban a bunch of mostly irrelevant subreddits (apart from ChapoTrapHouse) is just cover to ban r/The_Donald, which was the largest pro-MAGA community on the Internet," tweeted YouTuber and Human Events managing editor Ian Miles Cheong.
