Anonymous threatened to take Trump Hotel websites down on April 1st and it has done just that. It's not an April Fool's prank.

Anonymous announced its ‘War on Trump’ last week when it threatened to take down the website for Trump International Hotel & Tower in Chicago.

That website is currently up and operating as normal, though it was taken down earlier, but the Trump Hotel Collection website is offline instead. Visitors trying to access the website will be greeted by an error message, not ideal if you need to book a hotel room in a hurry.

An Anonymous Twitter account posted an image, showcasing that the website is offline across the world. On an Anonymous YouTube video, a commenter noted that a variety of websites were taken down earlier today, including Trump Chicago, Trump.com, Citizens for Trump, and Trump Initiative.

Anonymous previously took down the Trump Towers NY site in December as a response to Trump’s statement that there should be a ban on Muslims entering the US. And it doesn't look like there's an end to this war in sight.
