On Saturday, Joe Biggs, an Army combat veteran who also happens to be an outspoken supporter of President Trump, said on Twitter that Chase Bank closed out his personal account despite having reportedly been a customer in good standing for nearly 20 years.
“Chase bank just closed out my account!” he said on Twitter.
Chase bank just closed out my account!

“I’ve had my account with Chase since around the year 2000,” Biggs told the Gateway Pundit.
Biggs, by the way, is a verified Twitter user with over 200,000 followers.
According to the report, Chase informed him of the action by email. When he went to his local branch to inquire about the email, the bank representative said she could see no reason why the action was taken, but that he would receive an explanation by mail.
According to the Gateway Pundit, Biggs’ retirement pay is deposited in that account.
Cristina Laila added:
Chase Bank withdrew all the money that was in his account and gave Biggs a wad of cash.
“I have to find a new bank now,” Biggs told The Gateway Pundit.
Joe Biggs is a huge supporter of the 2nd Amendment and also makes documentary films focused on the border crisis but he says YouTube has taken down most of his videos and demonetized his channel.
This isn’t the first time Chase has taken action against conservatives and outspoken Trump supporters. As we and others reported earlier, Chase shut down the accounts of Enrique Tarrio, the chairman of Proud Boys and conservative commentator Martina Markota.
I got a letter in the mail from my bank about my business account.This creates a huge problem for me and my business and my income as I can’t change the account info on my indiegogo campaign and it stops me from conducting business with my comic book.They refuse to tell me why pic.twitter.com/lvpvC5LbIb

I didn’t want to assume my chase business account closed over politics. But things are getting crazier and crazier, and I’m starting to think maybe it WAS over politics

Is Chase Bank now discriminating against those who support Trump and the Constitution?
We reached out to the bank for comment but have not received a reply as of this writing.
