Donald Trump Stops Blog Project

The former US president wanted to build a platform for his supporters. But there wasn't more to read than press releases. Now the blog is closed.

Just a few weeks after starting his own blog - which was initiated as a stopgap after being blocked in other social media - ex-US President Donald Trump said goodbye to the project. The blog section on Trump's website entitled From the Desk of Donald J. Trump, which was launched in early May, is no longer accessible.

Trump now leads to a page where users can sign up for email and SMS notifications from Trump.

His colleague Jason Miller confirmed the closure of the blog on Twitter. At the end of March, he said that Trump would go back online with "his own platform" within three months. "Maybe this is a harbinger that he's joining another online platform?" Tweeted a former Republican Party representative. "Yes, it really is. Stay tuned," Miller replied, without giving any further details. For a long time, Trump has been fueling speculation that he could start his own online platform. So far, however, there has not been anything concrete.
