Since losing the election, he languishes at Mar-a-Lago, trying to find an easy method back. All he’s got left is an email to deliver his juvenile insults.
The blog flopped.
Less than a month following it had been launched on May 4, the former president’s latest blog named “From the Desk of Donald J. Trump” was history.
It was power down yesterday with little fanfare. The website “cost a couple of thousand dollars to make” and had an easy, Trumpian mission, the New York Times reported. It will be “an online link for proponents to see claims given by the former leader and speak with him.”
A resource told the newspaper that “Mr. Trump had become irritated after reading from friends that the website was getting little traffic and making him look little and irrelevant.”
Trump’s advisors have already been dropping and slipping to describe why the website failed. “It was just auxiliary to the broader efforts we have and are working on,” Jason Miller, a premier Trump guide, claimed via email to CNBC. And on Facebook, Miller suggested the Trump team was planning anything larger and easier to come. “Keep updated!” he wrote.
Quite simply, it is going to be YUGE.
Or not. The defunct failed blog was just the newest event in Trump’s extended saga of failure. A couple of days later, on Friday evening, Facebook introduced that Trump will soon be banned for leastwise two more years.
Because Trump lost — sure, lost — the November election, he’s been languishing at his Mar-a-Lago Membership, searching for a straightforward approach back. After he incited the Jan. 6 insurrection at the U.S. Capitol, he was banned from equally Twitter, and Facebook effectively shut taken off his tens of numerous social network followers, fans who put on every syllable of his day hours diatribes.
Trump has made plenty of claims. As he is remaining the Bright House, he said he’d construct their tv network. He bragged he’d variety a TV show.
Instead, the Grasp of Marketing has been sitting for lackluster interviews with the slobbering Trump sycophants who populate conservative media. And he’s been blocking my email in-box with tiresome pronouncements about rigged elections and juvenile insults.
And, yes, he started that blog. Trump’s brain trust needs to have known better. A website is oh so 2000. Communicating via self-made websites without distribution is just a non-starter.
Social media marketing, powered by famous brands Twitter, Facebook, TikTok, and Instagram, would be the essential, cutting-edge interaction strategies of 2021. Every serious politician and elected official deploys a cultural network for the message, fundraising, and campaigning.
Except for Donald J. Trump.
To penetrate the social networking landscape, he wants the usage of those independently presented platforms. But those monstrous communication motors were built over a long time, some at the cost of a huge choice of numerous pounds, and now he must make his own.
For the present time, Trump is stuck with emailing out gems similar to this one, dispatched on Friday afternoon:
“The next time I’m in the White House, you will have no longer dinners, at his request, with Mark Zuckerberg and his wife. It is going to be all business!”
What “Next time”?
