CNNMoney has carried out an investigation on Donald Trump’s online portfolio of domain names and found that he has 3,643 websites that range from TrumpEmpire.com to TrumpFraud.org.
CNNMoney investigated 20 years of internet records using Domain name search tool DomainTools. Before he reached the White House, Trump’s company had laid claim to at least 3,643 website domains. The buying spree continued as he ran for president. Trump bought 93 of them after he launched his presidential campaign.
According to CNNMoney’s investigation, Trump owns websites including ImBeingSuedByTheDonald.com, VoteAgainstTrump.com, TrumpMustGo.com, NoMoreTrump.com and DonaldTrumpSucks.com.
The Trump Organization issued a statement on Tuesday:
“Unfortunately cyber squatting, publishing false content and the use of ‘negative’ domain names is a serious issue facing all large companies around the world,” said company spokeswoman Amanda Miller. “We take the protection of our corporate identity and our intellectual property very seriously… this includes trademarking both positive and negative domain names and taking firm legal action when necessary to protect our name and intellectual property.”
DonaldTrumpSucks.com originally belonged to Dan Parisi, who once ran WhiteHouse.com as a porn site. Parisi, an infamous cybersquatter , told CNNMoney that he let the TrumpSucks domain registration lapse. Parisi said he now plans to turn WhiteHouse.com into “a voice of the people against the administration.”
