What can the every man do about Donald Trump apart from angrily tweet or Facebook?

Well, you could start an online revolution by starting a website called NoMoreTrump.com.

Except your genius keyboard warrior plan may go belly up because a Business Insider report has found the Trump Organisation has bought that domain name along with 3,152 others including: 

TrumpIsFired.com
ComplainToTrump.com
TrumpNetworkMarketingFraud.com
IHateTrumpVodka.com
ImBeingSuedByTheDonald.com
TrumpNetworkPyramidScheme.com
NoMoreTrump.com
TrumpMultiLevelMarketing.com
TrumpNetworkFraud.com
DonaldTrumpPonziScheme.com
TrumpNetworkSucks.com
TrumpNetworkPonziScheme.com
TheTrumpNetworkPonziScheme.com
DonaldTrumpSucks.com
TrumpCorporationSucks.com
TrumpOrganizationSucks.com

According to the President’s son Eric, it’s common practice to buy up domains and that while not all of the domains were live, they were just a fraction of the "tens of thousands" of URLs owned by the company.

He said:

"It's just a smart thing to do, and it's a great way to protect yourself [from predatory people].

"For a company like ours, it's incredibly important to protect ourselves, and it's incredibly important to own our intellectual property."

Speaking of which, some of the other URLs are indicative of previous business intentions and failures by Trump’s company. Take a look at the below: 

TrumpVodkaSucks.com
TrumpAir.com
IvankaHotel.com
ChicagoTrumpLimo.com
LiveLikeATrump.com
ThinkLikeATrump.com
DonaldTrumpBed.com
DonaldTrumpMattress.com
DonaldTrumpTea.com
WollmanSkating.com
TrumpVersace.com
VersaceTrump.com
YoureFiredVodka.com
TrumpCoffeeBeans.com
TheTrumpFolliesOnBroadway.com
TrumpTats.com
TrumpAccesoriosdelBanoDeCasaLatinAmerica.com
TrumpaCasaRopadeCamaLatinAmerica.com
TrumpModelManagement.com
DonaldTrumpCarpet.com
TrumpLuxuryCandles.com
TrumpIceCreamParlor.com
TrumpChardonnay.com
TrumpOnTheRocks.com
DonaldTrumpEyewear.com
DonaldTrumpZapatosLatinAmerica.com
TrumpShoesMexico.com
TrumpMattresses.com
TrumpMexicoCity.com
LiveTheTrumpLife.com
TrumportunityKnocks.com
DonaldTrumpFootwearMexico.com
DonaldTrumpOfficeChairs.com
TrumpDoll.com
TrumpSteaks.com
TrumpHomeCrystalGifts.com
TrumpMexico.com
DonaldTrumpAngels.com
TrumpAndOJ.com

Ventures like Trump Vodka tanked after no one bought it back in 2006. TheTrumpFolliesOnBroadway.com was bought back when Trump tried to create a show for Broadway to no avail, and TrumpandOJ.com is in reference for when he asked to put OJ Simpson on The Apprentice which was shot down by TV network NBC. 

But the most interesting insight is how long he’s been planning his political rise for, having registered the following domains: 

ElectTrump.com
DonaldTrump2012.com
VoteAgainstTrump.com
TrumpArmy.com
TrumpIsHired2012.com
Trump2016.com
Trump2012.com
MakeAmericaGreatAgain.vote

Perhaps most terrifying is TrumpEmpire.com which we hope never comes into fruition. 

Funnily enough though, Gizmodo points out that the President hasn’t had the foresight to buy up ImpeachTrump.com yet.
