On Sunday, an online knitting community with 8 million members called Ravelry announced it was banning support for President Donald Trump and his administration on its site.




It said that it would ban posts or content supporting Trump, but it would not delete project data, nor would it ban members who support Trump, as long as they don't talk about it.




"We cannot provide a space that is inclusive of all and also allow support for open white supremacy," a Ravelry blog post said. "Support of the Trump administration is undeniably [in] support [of] white supremacy."
