Trump Store Shopping Cart Abandonment refers to a late June 2020 raid on Donald Trump's online merchandise store by TikTokers who oppose him. TikTokers uploaded videos of themselves filling up their shopping carts in the online store and then abandoning their purchase to create a problem for the store's data analysis and potentially negatively affect sales.
On June 23rd, 2020, Twitter user @williamlegate tweeted "It’d be a damn shame if the TikTok army realized the fact that clicking Trump campaign ads on Google costs them several dollars each time… (I don’t condone this)" to which Twitter user @christophurious responded "Go to the trump merch store. Load up your digital cart with as much merch as you can fit. Now instead of checking out, take a little break (or a long one) and go read about the wonderful world of digital shopping cart abandonment and it’s negative effects on available inventory" which gained over 5,500 likes in six days (shown below).
On June 24th, TikToker lil.grac published a screenshot of @christophurious's tweet in a video that garnered over 402,300 likes in five days (shown below).
