Donald Trump was blocked on Twitter, Facebook and Co. That’s why the former US president started his own blog a few weeks ago. It has now apparently been discontinued – for good.
Former President Donald Trump’s blog – a website he posted on after major social media companies banned him from their platforms – has been permanently shut down. As the US news site “CNBC” reported, Trump’s spokesman announced the end of the blog on Wednesday.
The From the Desk of Donald J. Trump page has been retired after going online less than a month earlier. She “will not return,” his senior advisor Jason Miller told CNBC. Instead, visitors are now directed to a page where they can sign up for email and SMS notifications from Trump.
Platform should “completely redefine the game”
“It was just an addition to the broader efforts we have and are working on,” Miller wrote in an email. He did not go into detail. An explanation for the abrupt termination cannot be found on the homepage. Trump’s last post was dated May 31st.
Trump was known to be an excessive Twitter user before the online service banned him in response to his followers storming the U.S. Capitol on Jan. 6. Other platforms such as Facebook, Instagram and Youtube also blocked the former president.
As recently as March, agent Miller said Trump’s blog would “completely redefine the game.” “This new platform is going to be big and everyone wants it. It will bring millions and millions, tens of millions of people to its new platform.”
