June 3, 2021—A blog roll of former President Donald Trump’s thoughts has been taken down, after about a month of activity.

The “Desk of Donald J Trump,” which shared Trump’s thoughts on matters, emerged after social media companies, including Twitter and Facebook, banned him for allegations he incited violence and played a role in the riot at the Capitol in January.

The webpage now directs to an email sign-up form.

Trump and his allies accuse social media companies of being unfairly biased toward him and have teased a roll-out of an alternative platform for his base to interact with him.
