Trump.Dating was attempting to hook up people with like-minded political views who didn’t want to mix with liberals or anti-Trump protestors.
The site, which was already bizarre in its premise, grew further criticism as it emerged that only straight men and women could join the site, thus excluding gay and bisexual men and women.
In addition, it emerged that a man wearing a red Trump baseball cap, who appeared as the lead image on the site, was a convicted child sex offender, as reported by SF Gate.
The image of the man, identified as William Barrett Riddleberger, has since been removed as replaced with a stock image of a happy, generic white couple who appear to have no affiliation with the President.The Hill reports that a political startup called the American Liberal Council has launched a site named NeverTrump.Dating, which is hoping to help people “Escape Trumpism with an enlightened lover”.
At first glance, the website appears to bear a striking similarity to Trump.Dating, which may or may not be intentional.According to the founder of ALC, Ted Brown, the purpose of the site is to allow people of the same political persuasion to meet each other and stand against Trump and his supporters.
A statement on the site reads as follows:
Our Democracy can still be saved. But ﬁrst, we must ﬁnd those with like-minded beliefs, and join those who stand for tolerance and justice for all.
We need allies who will never back down to the corrupt, morally-bankrupt administration in power, and we can do that right here.
Skip the awkward political conversations, and know where your future love stands from the get-go, liberty and equality are making a comeback on NeverTrump.Dating!
