Did Trump’s Presidential Alert system break AT&T data all over the Pacific Northwest?

Published

At 2:18 p.m. EST the United States tested its presidential alert system. It’s designed for the president to contact Americans whether they want him to or not. Apparently, there might still be some kinks in the system though, because the Pacific Northwest still hasn’t been able to use their data since the alert.

Scott Stoddard, the editor of the Grants Pass Daily Courier tweeted Wednesday that AT&T phones seem to be having trouble getting any data connection since the alert went out.

“AT&T mobile phones in the Pacific Northwest haven’t been able to get a data connection since the nationwide presidential alert. Outage reports from Portland, Seattle, Spokane, Olympia, Grants Pass, Ashland,” he tweeted.

Washington’s Robert Cruickshank was one of them hearing stories of friends in Seattle who can’t use their phones.

Some are claiming a fix to the problem, but Stoddard said he’s had zero luck.

There are already conspiracy theories springing up about the president trying to strike back against the “left coast.”

AT&T released a statement saying that they were able to send the alert out with no problems and the outage in the northwest is nothing more than a huge coincidence.

“We are aware of an issue affecting wireless data services for some customers in parts of the WA area. Our technicians are engaged and working as quickly as possible to resolve the issue. This is not related to the presidential text alert,” the spokesperson said.
