Former President Trump’s blog, where he shared statements with supporters after being banned from social media platforms like Twitter and Facebook, has been shut down.
Trump launched the website, dubbed “From the Desk of Donald Trump,” last month to communicate with supporters. The site now only allows users to submit their email addresses and phone numbers to sign up for updates from the former president.
Trump senior aide Jason Miller confirmed to The Hill that the blog will not be returning, calling it “auxiliary to the broader efforts we have and are working on.”
It was not immediately clear what other avenues Trump would pursue to communicate with his supporters.
A slew of social media platforms, including Twitter and Facebook, banned Trump in the wake of the Jan. 6 Capitol riot, citing his unsupported claims of widespread voter fraud in the 2020 presidential election.
Facebook last month announced that its ban on Trump’s account would continue following a decision issued by its independent Oversight Board. However, the board said an indefinite suspension was not appropriate, calling on Facebook to review the decision and develop a “proportionate response” within six months.
