To be clear, Meetup is not merely allowing its users to organize anti-Trump protests. They’re actually helping their users to do it.
They could find that doing such a thing is bad for business. There are millions of Trump supporters who might drop them over this.

Meetup goes beat up on Trump
Meetup, a popular networking site, is taking a stand against President Trump.
The tech company is coordinating protests among thousands of its users already involved with anti-Trump Meetup groups.
“It’s one thing for a CEO to say, ‘I’m going to stand up against a politician,” CEO Scott Heiferman told the Associated Press. “It’s even further for the company itself to mobilize people.”
Heiferman said a line was crossed with Trump’s ban blocking travel from several predominately Muslim countries. “We have a civic duty not to be quiet,” he added.
Hillary Clinton’s former digital director, Jess Morales Rocketto, is leading the campaign, which is being referred to as #Resist. The effort aims to give protesters the tools needed to respond to Trump administration’s policies.
Share this with your Trump supporter friends so they can stop using the site if they choose to.
Why should anyone who supports Trump contribute to this company’s revenue stream?
