Former President Donald Trump has found clever ways to speak to his audience ever since he left the White House.
Now it seems the ex-president is disappearing… in a way.
The New York Daily News and other sources are reporting that Trump has gotten rid of his blog.
The former president took to his blog format — titled “From the Desk of Donald J. Trump” — after the social media ban on all major platforms took place.
But the blog was deleted on Thursday ahead of the return of Trump’s signature “Make America Great Again” rallies.
Trump’s Spokesperson, Jason Miller, confirmed the blog’s disappearance with a teasing message.
“Stay tuned!” he wrote on Twitter.
Critics seem to be thinking the move may be a precursor to a major announcement from the Trump camp.
A return to social media?
“The Desk of Donald J. Trump” section of President Trump’s website has been removed and will not be returning per @JasonMillerinDC.
Perhaps this is a precursor to him joining another social media platform?

Rumors have circled around the team that Trump could be launching his own social media app, or joining an alternative platform.
The disappearance of his blog comes as he’s leading up to speaking publicly at the annual Republican Party convention in North Carolina. Prior reports had noted that the event will be closed off to the media entirely.[Sponsored] Are you taking one of these 9 “memory erasing” prescriptions?
Others report that the blog’s sinking numbers caused ex-president to remove the platform — although he received a major bump the 1st day it launched, afterward it had failed to reach more than 15,000 after the 3rd day.
Nonetheless, the move — right before the return of his rallies — is giving pundits something to think about.
NBC News reports that his rallies are slated to continue through June and July.
But what about you, what do you say?
Why do you think Trump's blog vanished?
