Image: A CALL WITH JACK: How Twitter CEO, Jack Dorsey, restricted advertising for Trump’s campaign

Gary Coby shares his experience working with the Trump campaign and Twitter.

We told them it was BS and what they were doing with a public platform was incredibly reckless and dangerous. We voiced that it was clearly a political move and telling us otherwise was just insulting.
Jack maintained their talking points and stayed on message. He also pushed back on it being one-sided, because they were “stopping this feature for ALL political campaigns.”
But, the only other campaign large enough to have this type of deal would have been the Clinton campaign and my contacts inside TW informed me that they did not have one in place.
So basically, “cancelling for all political campaigns” really meant cancelling ONLY for Donald J. Trump’s campaign.
In return, I cancelled our 10/9 and 11/5 promoted trends. Further, I pulled all persuasion and lead gen spending, costing Twitter millions of dollars.

Sen. Chuck Grassley discusses adoption for national adoption month.

Through my years advocating for foster youth, I know it’s their greatest desire to have a forever home where they are called to the table every night of the week with families who share unconditional love and concern for their well-being from the moment they wake up in the morning to the moment they lay their head on the pillow at night. That’s why I will continue setting the policymaking tables with reforms that will help the hundreds of thousands of youth who are placed in our foster care system to find forever homes and to hold accountable those entrusted to provide child welfare services to the youngest members of our society. For the kids who do not find forever homes and age out of foster care, I work to hear directly from them to hear their story and learn from their experiences to find out what works and what doesn’t work. Bringing everyone to the policymaking tables, from foster families, to child welfare advocates and juvenile court workers, helps policymakers make more informed decisions that stretches limited resources and builds opportunities for kids who age out of the system to succeed and transition to independence.

Matt Rhoades on why the Clinton foundation took down the Clinton campaign.

Secretary Clinton’s painstaking efforts to conceal this information from the American public led her to conduct all her business on a private email server. In another twist of irony, her attempts to avoid public scrutiny caused the exact opposite and the national scandal she couldn’t shake.
The last few days of Clinton’s campaign against GOP nominee Trump were marked by a slew of negative headlines, including a new FBI investigationpartially induced by the Clinton Foundation. Onetime Clinton loyalists were caught accusing Chelsea Clinton of using foundation funds to pay for her own wedding. Another damaging memo surfaced from a key Clinton confidante about the convergence of Bill Clinton’s business activities and the foundation’s fundraising goals, even using the term “Clinton Inc.”
On Election Day, 54 percent of the American public had an unfavorable view of Secretary Clinton. All of her scandals and controversies fell neatly into the buckets of untrustworthy, unethical and failed leadership we had been driving. The voters did the rest.
