to Millennials & Gen Z:
Vis Dis needs you!
Here’s why →
I pledge to be a supporter of the DT Visual Disobedience campaign, whose goal is to have DT’s U.S. presidency end by 2020. I intend to take peaceful visual acts in support of this campaign, most importantly not being seen at any Trump-owned businesses.
The combined strength of my fellow supporters will enable me to overcome any self-doubts. I will remain composed if confronted by DT supporter(s), knowing this is not about changing their mind.
The force of the visual disobedience campaign majority will win out.

DT Owned Businesses
We’ve created a Google Map that shows all DT-owned golf courses, hotels, and restaurants around the world. There are quite a few to say the least, with many in New York. Most of them have “Trump” in their name, making them easy to identify and avoid.
DT has committed some glaring, intolerable acts. We highlight four of them below, and include supporting documentation. These acts can reinforce your reasons for taking the pledge. Refer to the one or two of them that most upset you, if you get involved in a difficult discussion. See our Handling Blowbacks article in the adjacent column.
- ‘Russia Favored Trump’ Cover-up: One of Donald Trump administration’s most disgraceful acts was its July 2018 attempted cover-up of Putin’s admission at the Helsinki press conference that Russia favored Trump over Clinton in the 2016 Presidential election. Continue reading
- Russia influenced US Election: The handling of Russian interference in the 2016 Presidential election has haunted Trump’s presidency even before he took the oath of office in January 2017. Read more
- Mistreatment of Women: DT ’s treatment of women and his sexual morals are very upsetting, as are DT’s many misrepresentations related to certain “hush money” payments. We chronicle some key events. Discover the details
- Misleading Statements Now in the 1000s: The Washington Post maintains a count of DT’s false or misleading statements from the date of his inauguration. Through November 30, 2018, the count was 43xx, an average of over 7 a day. Check it out
By a blowback, we mean the often angry responses we might receive from DT supporters when they see us using a campaign visual like a baseball cap or lawn sign. After all, DT supporters currently number around 40%. Find out more here
The DT ‘Vis Dis’ pledge includes not being seen at a Trump business. It’s often difficult to know what words to use when declining to attend a celebration or business meeting, so we’ve provided below several examples for you. Use them as a starting point for your regret text, email, or letter. Learn to refuse gracefully
|Play golf||> 150|
|Attend church||< 10|
Trump has not been attending church services regularly while in office and has likely attended church less than ten times through November 30, 2018. He had only attended church twice as of April 16, 2017, once on the morning of his inauguration, and a second time for Easter services. But he has golfed up to 154 times through November 30, 2018—check out the Count here!

People of faith understand the importance of the idea to forgive. We all miss the mark sometimes. But it is very important that when we are in the wrong, that we admit our guilt, not deny or cover it up. Many of the leaders we respect have made mistakes. They say that they are sorry and they ask for forgiveness. See how we derived his rating
