Anyone who watches the news in the US knows that real estate tycoon Donald Trump is considering a run for President. Although “The Donald” has not officially declared his candidacy yet, there are plenty of people anticipating that this will happen, and they’ve been buying Trump related domain names.
For instance, here are a number of registered presidential election domain names not owned by Mr. Trump:
It does seem that Mr. Trump is preparing for a presidential run, at least in terms of his domain names. ElectTrump.com is registered to The Trump Organization. The domain name was created by someone in New Jersey in October of 2010. It appears that The Trump Organization acquired the domain name sometime between December of 2010 and February of 2011. In addition, The Trump Organization also owns Trump2012.com.
I don’t know whether the company bought these two domain names or if it acquired them via legal means (cease and desist letter for instance), but it now owns these two prime domain assets.
Ironically, despite the fact that Mr. Trump has not even declared his candidacy yet, it appears that at least one person is betting he will win and do a poor job. ImpeachTrump.com was already registered by someone in California in January of this year. Talk about putting the cart in front of the horse!
