GoFundMe bans travel fundraising for political events that have 'risk of violence'

GoFundMe will no longer let users raise money to travel to political events that could turn violent, the company said Tuesday, after Trump supporters used the site to raise money for last week's attack on the U.S. Capitol.

The world's biggest social fundraising platform is joining the growing chorus of businesses condemning the attempted insurrection and cracking down on the inflammatory rhetoric spread by President Donald Trump and his supporters. GoFundMe will "remove fundraisers for travel expenses to a future political event where there's risk of violence by the attendees," a company spokesman told The Washington Post on Tuesday, adding that GoFundMe has removed "numerous" fundraisers intended to raise money for travel expenses in the wake of the violence.
