Trump ads on mobile apps

I'm starting to see ads for the 2020 Trump app showing up a lot in the ad-supported mobile apps I use. Developers CAN screen these out, at least on Google's AdMob platform, by going to the Blocking Controls -> App Install Ads section and searching for it there. If an app I use regularly starts showing these ads, I submit a support ticket immediately to let the developers know. The vast majority of people find him disgusting, and if they have to look at his bullshit with any regularity, they may open the app less often, which has a direct impact on the app developer's revenue. I have anything remotely related to Trump blocked 9 ways to Sunday on my app platforms because I don't want to give him any airtime but also because my typical user would find his ads disgusting.
