Both sites direct users to a page that says, “Vote NO to Trump,” along with the message that “he wasn’t even organized enough to purchase this domain at public auction, and he wants to run the U.S.A.?”
The sites’ owner did not immediately respond to TheWrap’s request for comment. However, Trump.org states that the owner received a letter from Trump attorney’s threatening legal action for trademark infringement for purchasing the domain. It doesn’t appear that the owner is scared.
“Guess who still owns the domain… not that guy,” the site says.
The Trump Campaign did not immediately respond to TheWrap’s request for comment.
The site also includes the message, “This site is not owned by nor affiliated with Donald Trump or any of the trademark holder(s) of the Trump name. The domain, first created back in 2001, was registered through GoDaddy.com and updated on August 19, 2015 – two weeks after Trump participated in the first Republican primary debate.
Ironically, The Donald seems to be getting a taste of his own medicine, as users who visited JebBush.com were redirected to Trump’s campaign site last December. However, Bush’s official campaign site was Jeb2016.com, not JebBush.com.
