Donald Trump shut down his blog website where he posts his statements 

Donald Trump’s blog webpage where he started posting his statements has shut down for good after being set active just 29 days prior. 

‘From the Desk of Donald J. Trump’ has been scrubbed from the former president’s website and instead the URL redirects users to a page to sign up for his email and text alerts.

Senior Trump aide Jason Miller told CNBC that the site ‘will not be returning.’

‘It was just auxiliary to the broader efforts we have and are working on,’ he added. 

The site was set up amid the former president being banned from social media sites like Twitter and Facebook following the January 6 Capitol riot. The site, however, received criticism from those who claimed it was a sad excuse for an alternative to these other platforms.

Trump promised after being booted from his accounts that he would set up his own social media site, which he insists is different from the ‘desk’ blog.

Miller claimed he is ‘hoping to have more information on the broader efforts soon’ regarding the new social media site.

‘I do not have a precise awareness of timing,’ he said.

Trump unveiled his new blog last month billed as a ‘communication platform’ for the former president to interact more directly with supporters and the public after losing his access to other platforms.

A Twitter account set up to repost those statements verbatim was immediately shut down by CEO Jack Dorsey. The ‘desk’ site, however, also gave visitors the ability to easily share the statements for themselves onto social media platforms.

Due to Trump’s messaging for a new social media platform, many felt this new website was him unveiling that.

He and his team pushed back against this, however, claiming it was just a way to pump out his statements, which were also sent out through the email account for his Save America political action committee.

Miller said at the time in his own Twitter post that the ‘Desk’ page was ‘a great resource’ to find Trump’s statements.

He clarified ‘this is not a new social media platform.’
