The Donald is one nickname for President Trump. It started at least when he began hosting the TV show “The Apprentice.”

The Donald is/was the largest single resource for Trump info and memes. They amplified and spread the stuff the 4Chan people came up with to the masses.

It is a forum, kind of like FR, dedicated to Donald Trump's campaign. Only The_Donald and Conservative Treehouse were on the Trump train since the beginning of his candidacy. Its importance to his campaign was huge.

It’s a section of the main reddit website dedicated to all things Trump.

Pro Trump.

reddit is kind of like facebook for nerds.

For context, /r/The_Donald has clashed with the admins for quite a while, and had several rules imposed on it, like being banned from linking to r/politics. It is also speculated that the algorithm for r/all being redone and the ability to filter r/all were specific acts taken because of and against the_donald. This crackdown from the admins also comes after a new set of much stricter rules for moderators. While resentments between t_d mods and the admins have been simmering for a long time, there are some specific recent events that have led to this which I detailed in a post yesterday, copied here
