Trump Blog Announcement Highlights the Lines of the Culture War

Trump announced he has added what is effectively a blog to his website. The left mocked and sneered at the development while the right hailed it as a new opportunity to directly address his supporters.


Former President Donald Trump is back online as he unveiled a feature on his website called “From the Desk of Donald J. Trump”, which functions much like a blog and allows followers to “like” posts from Trump and share them on other platforms, though commenting is not yet allowed.

  • Traditional mainstream media has largely not covered Trump’s announcement. That has not stopped the likes of The Verge and Gizmodo from mocking Trump for “area man” starting “just a blog.”
  • Slate sneered at the website, calling it a “crude Twitter replica” in which users cannot reply or comment.
  • Vox noted Trump advisor Jason Miller saying From the Desk of Donald J Trump is not the “new social media platform” that was promised, and that announcement should be expected soon.
