Sorry for the ignorance but Not on reddit, what is the Donald?
How old are you, if you can say..?
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.
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
