PNC Bank just ended its business relationship with Donald Trump Jr.'s news app "without cause"
· Mar 3, 2023 ·

We are slowly entering into the world of soft totalitarianism as banks refuse to do business with people because of political disagreements.

Fox News is reporting that Pittsburgh-based PNC Bank has cut ties with Donald Trump Jr.'s news app for no given reason.

PNC Financial Services Group Inc. abruptly terminated its business relationship with the news aggregation app company launched last year by Donald Trump Jr. and former Trump spokesman Taylor Budowich, Fox News Digital has learned, which the company called the latest move by "woke corporations" to silence conservatives.

MxM News was founded and launched last year by Trump Jr. and Budowich to compete with apps that aggregate news content for readers, like Apple News, Google News and others that conservatives have accused of censorship. The parent company of MxM News is ROCDIGITAL, LLC.

It's literally an app that aggregates news from all over the internet. That's all it does.

But woke corporations hold tremendous sway over the news that you're allowed to see and the things you're allowed to say. So, with no warning, PNC just dropped the account related to Trump Jr.

Budowich told Fox News Digital that he first learned of the abrupt closure of the company's PNC account when he visited a Florida branch office to pay vendor invoices.

"The teller said he was unable to complete the transfers as the account had been closed and balance had been zeroed out," Budowich told Fox News Digital.

"After being told to call a generic help line, I was informed by the PNC representative that per the terms and conditions, PNC reserves the right to re-evaluate their business relationships at any time and terminate accounts without cause," Budowich said.


I mean, let's be honest, the likelihood of PNC Bank just randomly closing this account for anything other than political reasons is a little far-fetched.

It's associated with a Trump, so now it's no more.

He added: "Woke corporations are using their terms and conditions like a guillotine over the head of every conservative entrepreneur."

Trump Jr. told Fox News Digital that MxM News was created to "provide curated stories that are being silenced and or suppressed by big tech and the mainstream media."

"However, as this shows, it's not just the media that's become plagued by the woke agenda," he said. "It's banks, it's the entire corporate America."

Yep. As long as the woke control the banks and major businesses, conservatives are going to continue to be a target.

Trump Jr. added: "We need a patriot economy. We need a parallel economy to fight back."

Trump Jr. told Fox News Digital that the closure was "a minor setback for MxM News that we were able to quickly resolve."

"But what about every other start up, or small business who wants to pursue a values-based company?" Trump Jr. asked. "This should be investigated, and it should be illegal to discriminate based on political affiliation."

We can't live in a society that cancels conservatives and prevents them from buying, selling, or participating in society.

Conservatives are up in arms about the suspension:

PNC, of course, denies that they acted based on politics.

When asked for comment, PNC told Fox News Digital the bank does not make its account closure decisions based on the political beliefs of its customers.

"While PNC does not comment on the closure of specific accounts, which may occur for a variety of reasons, our account closure decisions are never driven by politics," PNC said in a statement to Fox News Digital. "As a national bank, we recognize and respect that our customers and our employees hold a wide range of political beliefs."

So, they claim it's not political. But they also won't tell us why they did it.

Unless Trump's company was up to something illegal, which is not alleged anywhere, it's hard to think of a justification for a bank to just suddenly and without warning close the account.
