The Real Reason Donald Trump Shut Down His Website

Donald Trump reportedly hopes to be reinstated as President in August

Online conversation among Trump supporters and QAnon followers on new and emerging social media platforms is creating concern on Capitol Hill that President Donald Trump's continued perpetuation of the falsehood that the 2020 election was stolen could soon incite further violence, three congressional sources tell CNN. During a recent week, web metrics indicated that the blog had "been shared to Facebook on average fewer than 2,000 times a day - a staggering drop from [Trump's tweets] previous year", the Post said.

Folks were quick to react to the news of Trump killing his blog because, honestly, it might be the most relatable thing he's ever done.

Trump is sliding toward online irrelevance.

At the time of the ban, the former president reached tens of millions of followers on Twitter, and millions on Facebook alone.


"From the Desk of Donald J. Trump" no longer appears on his website and was only live for less than a month. "And we happily continue to do so", he said then.

"President Trump's website is a great resource to find his latest statements and highlights from his first term in office, but this is not a new social media platform", he demurred. Social media sites are endlessly more expensive and complicated than a simple blog, requiring a vast infrastructure allowing for user accounts, comments and other modern Web features that were never present on Trump's site. Trump had lost the November election to Democrat Joe Biden, who was inaugurated as president two weeks later. But after he launched it in early May, Internet traffic tracking showed that it wasn't getting much traction. But according to the Post, the blog drew an unimpressive 1,500 shares or comments on Facebook and Twitter on its final day.

That response rate was pitifully low by Trump standards.

The blog page, which was billed as a place to "speak freely and safely", served as a one-way means of communication that contained posts from Mr Trump that could be liked and shared to social networks such as Twitter and Facebook from which he remains blocked. The old link now redirects to a webpage urging people to give their contact information to a Trump campaign mailing list.
