Trump shutters his blog 29 days after launching it CBS News

In the weeks following the vote, Trump attempted, through his legal team, to challenge the result of the election, but to no avail.

Nearly a month after it was first announced, former President Donald Trump has shuttered a section on his website that he used to post statements after being banned from major social media platforms like Twitter and Facebook, Trump senior aide Jason Miller confirmed to ABC News. 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] past year", the Post said.

Former US President Donald Trump has reportedly announced his plans to once again assume office in August.

At the time of the "launch", such as it was, senior advisor to Trump Jason Miller told Fox News that this wasn't supposed to be the new answer to Trump's canceled Twitter presence. CNBC first reported the blog's demise.

Mr Trump was banned from Facebook and Twitter after the Capitol Hill Riots. It will happen soon.

"Even now, taxpayers continue to spend many thousands of dollars to facilitate Donald Trump's businesses", said Noah Bookbinder, a former federal corruptions prosecutor who serves as executive director for Citizens for Responsibility and Ethics in Washington.

But the site rarely gained much viewership: Trump's entire website, including his blog, merchandise store and donation page, saw roughly 4 million visits in the week ending May 18 from desktop and mobile devices in the United States - roughly half of the week's traffic for the right-wing websites Newsmax and the Gateway Pundit, according to an analysis by the online-analytics firm Similarweb, which tracks and estimates traffic and referrals for millions of websites. 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.

Trump's supporters also were not racing to share the site on social media.

That response rate was pitifully low by Trump standards.

This farce really wrote itself when Trump touted the upcoming launch of his own new "communications platform" back in March, two months after his permanent ban from Twitter.

Every blog post has been scrubbed from the Internet.
