Salesforce 'Takes Action' To Block RNC Emails That Deny Election Results

Salesforce apparently is preventing the Republican National Committee from sending fund-raising emails that claim the Presidential election was fraudulent or use language that could provoke violence.

The RNC had sent hundreds of emails through ExactTarget, the email marketing vendor owned by Salesforce, saying that the Democrats had stolen the election and that it had to be overturned by Congress, according to CBSN SF Bay Area. 

However, the RNC had, last Wednesday "decided independently to stop fundraising on all of our digital platforms, including on Salesforce."

The takeover of the Capitol resulted in five deaths, not including that of an officer who committed suicide, and has been labeled as insurrection bordering on sedition by President-Elect Joe Biden. 

Salesforce put out this statement:

“We are all deeply troubled by the terrible events of January 6. And while we all hope that they are never repeated, sadly there remains a risk of politically incited violence across the country.”

It continues: "The Republican National Committee has been a long-standing customer, predating the current Administration, and we have taken action to prevent its use of our services in any way that could lead to violence."

According to Motherboard, the Trump campaign sent an inflammatory email at 1:24 p.m. last Wednesday, but has since been silent in the email channel.  

"We have the TRUTH,” the Jan. 6 email said. “Every single Patriot from across the Country must step up RIGHT NOW if we’re going to successfully DEFEND the integrity of this Election. President Trump is calling on YOU to bolster our Official Defend America Fund."

The Trump campaign emails are sent by ExactTarget in conjunction with the RNC, Motherboard writes.
