Trump's blog page shuts down for good

June 4, 2021: -Former President Donald Trump’s blog, a webpage where he shared statements after larger social media companies banned him from their platforms, has been permanently shut down, his spokesman said on Wednesday.

The page “From the Desk of Donald J. Trump” has been scrubbed from Trump’s website after going live less than a month before.

It “will not be returning,” his senior aide Jason Miller told CNBC.

“It was just auxiliary to the broader efforts we have and are working on,” Miller said through email.

“Hoping to have more information on the broader efforts soon, but I do not have a precise awareness of timing,” Miller said.

But asked online on Wednesday if the move was a “precursor” to the former president joining “another social media platform,” Miller replied.

Facebook and Twitter banned Trump from posting on their platforms after the Jan. 6 invasion of the U.S. Capitol by the then president’s supporters. Trump never conceded to President Joe Biden, repeatedly claimed on social media after the Nov. 3 election that the race had been stolen from him by fraud.

Trump and his allies have long accused social media giants of being tainted by political bias and prone to censoring conservatives. The former president has teased the rollout of an alternative platform.

But the blog, unveiled in the previous month and originally billed as a new “communications platform,” seemed ill-equipped to take on the largest social media companies.

Miller later clarifies at the time on Twitter that the “Desk” page was “a great resource” to find the statements of Trump, “but this is not a new social media platform.”

In January, at the time of his social media ban, Trump boasted tens of millions of followers on Twitter and millions of followers on Facebook.

Trump’s blog struggled to amass even a fraction of that engagement, NBC News reported a week after its launch, that cited data compiled with BuzzSumo.

Since leaving office on Jan. 20, the former president, who is hinted he may run for the White House again in the year 2024, has made just a handful of in-person appearances and has participated in interviews only with

social media outlets.

On Wednesday, the newly blog-less Trump, through his PAC, shared a new statement attacking GOP Gov. Doug Ducey of Arizona as a RINO, a derisive acronym for “Republican in name only” for vetoing a bill that would ban so-called critical race theory training for the workers of the government.
