JPMorgan Chase, or Chase Bank, has terminated its payment processing services to the pro-Trump brand Covfefe Coffee without providing a clear explanation for their decision.
Covfefe Coffee was founded in 2018, about a year after then-President Trump posted a confusing tweet that quickly went viral and became an internet sensation. “Despite the constant negative press covfefe,” the tweet said.
In a message to the coffee brand, Chase Bank wrote: “It seems you’re using WePay Payments for one or more of the activities prohibited by our Terms of Service. Unfortunately, you will no longer be able to use WePay Payments to accept additional payments. Any pending payments will be canceled and you won’t be able to withdraw funds at this time.
“Thank you for understanding and we apologize that we couldn’t offer a better solution,” the email concluded.
A Covfefe spokesman told National File in a statement they believe Chase Bank’s decision is purely political given that the company has used the payment system for two years without a problem.
National File reported that they “examined the Terms of Service of WePay, and could not find any legitimate reason for to have been removed.”
“The social credit system that is talked about in China, which conservatives say one day it’s coming here, no. We already have it,” the spokesman said.
They continued: “Instead of Republicans focusing on bringing in pro-Democracy Hong Kongers into our country for protection, they should focus on their voters, who pay their salary. How many lives need to be ruined? How many people need to be coerced and threatened with economic devastation until the Ben Shapiros and Mitch McConnells of the world actually do something? It’s like when people say, ‘Well there was some fraud in the election?’ Well, what percentage of fraud is okay? What percentage of cancel culture is okay? What’s it going to take?
“If they’re trying to ruin Trump’s life, nothing is safe. No one is coming to save us. We have no representation in government, we have no representation in “muh free market.” We wanted to provide a brand for the people. We have to start our own economy, our own nation. We have to build our own systems,” the spokesman said.
