Trump pulls own blog from internet
Named "From the Desk of Donald J. Trump," the blog was launched only a month ago in response to decisions by Twitter and Facebook to ban the Republican for inciting rebellion against President Joe Biden's election win.
The blog on the donaldjtrump.com website was touted as a major new outlet following Trump's defeat in November and punishment by the top social media players for stirring up a mob that ransacked Congress on January 6.
Trump, also banned from Instagram, YouTube and Snapchat in the wake of the Capitol mayhem, continues to promote the conspiracy theory that the 2020 election was stolen from him.
In angry emailed statements and in interviews with niche right-wing outlets like OAN, as well as the more mainstream Fox News, he continues to claim without evidence that he was victim of a conspiracy.
Now in place of his blog page, a form appears allowing sign-ups for alerts from the ex-president.
