In brief: Absolutey Not

Hypotension indicates that your body has low blood pressure from a variety of different reasons such as low blood volume, infectious or cardiac issues.
If you donate blood, you are further depleting you blood pressure that can lead to dangerous events like fainting, heart attacks and veen death.
