Donald Trump’s online presence ain’t what it used to be, that’s for sure.
As Trump continued to suggest that the 2020 election was stolen from him, Twitter and Facebook took drastic actions to stymy the then-President’s ability to communicate to the American people.
That in and of itself is an incredibly profound occurrence, but then they went further, stating that anything posted to their site “in Trump’s voice” could be removed…making it nearly impossible for The Don to get his message out.
That’s when Trump’s team launched a blog-style website, From the Desk of Donald J. Trump, where the now-former President could make statements whenever he wished. Predictably, the mainstream media gave these press release no reverence, and the reach was thus limited.
That site is now abruptly shutting down, but something much more exciting may be coming around the bend.
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 Wednesday.
The page “From the Desk of Donald J. Trump” has been scrubbed from Trump’s website after going live less than a month earlier.
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 via email.
Just a few hours later, a tantalizing tease was found online.
But asked online later Wednesday whether the move was a “precursor” to the former president joining “another social media platform,” Miller replied: “Yes, actually, it is. Stay tuned!”
Stay tuned, indeed…
