Donald Trump's blog page shuts down a month after launch

Mr Miller confirmed via Twitter that it is a precursor to Mr Trump's return to social media, although it is unclear when or how.

On top of his stream of statements, the former president has also regularly appeared on pro-Trump media outlets like OANN and Newsmax, and on Fox News shows.

Miller downplayed the blog as "just auxiliary to the broader efforts we have and are working on", and has teased that a new platform from the former president may be on the way.

Donald Trump's communications platform has been permanently shut down, his spokesperson told CNBC.

In his statement, Trump, without citing a source, said tens of millions of his supporters had stopped using Facebook and Twitter "because they've becoming "boring" and nasty" - a claim not backed up by the companies' own data, which shows USA usage has stayed steady or increased since Trump left office. However, sources told the New York Post that the account was not set up by anyone close to Trump or Trump himself.

In a tweet on May 4, Miller wrote that 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" and added that "we'll have additional information coming on that front in the very near future".

There were no descriptions of Johnson's attire, with the mop-haired British leader infamous for his often dishevelled appearance. The ceremony makes Johnson the first prime minister to get married while in office in roughly 200 years, The Telegraph noted.

At the time of the ban, the former president reached tens of millions of followers on Twitter, and millions on Facebook alone. Who hasn't hastily created a blog before spiking it a few weeks later?

Trump and his political allies have long accused social media companies of being hostile to conservative viewpoints. Online discussion around the former president has plummeted to a five-year low, according to the Post, with Trump-based social engagement in January tanking 95 percent to its lowest level since 2016. There is no legal mechanism in the U.S.by which Trump could reclaim the presidency while Biden is in office.
