Two weeks ago Donald Trump announced that he is running for the 2024 Republican nomination for president again. Presumably to score a record three popular vote losses. In an extraordinarily gloomy speech packed with horror stories of the “blood-soaked streets” and “cesspool cities” of America, Trump inspired his cult followers by declaring that he has “no doubt that it’s going to get worse.”
Since Trump’s announcement, he has embellished his credentials in ways that can only make sense to a severely twisted mind. First of all, he chose to have dinner with the notorious white supremacist and anti-Semite, Nick Fuentes, at his Mar-a-Lago resort/home. And if that weren’t bad enough, he also publicly confessed to the theft of classified documents, and lying about it to the FBI.
This inauspicious start to Trump’s campaign might have been mitigated by his having his own Internet platform to promote himself and his candidacy. Unfortunately for him, that was not to be. Trump’s floundering Twitter ripoff, Truth Social, received another blow this week with the news that it has suffered a precipitous decline over the past couple of months. According to reports…
“Truth Social, the alternative social media platform founded by former President Donald Trump, has seen a consecutive two-month decline in unique visitors, according to a watchdog site that monitors conservative media.”
“TheRighting, which reports on and analyzes trends in the conservative media, found that the number of unique visitors to Truth Social dropped from 4.02 million in August — an all-time high — to 3.38 million in September, and then to 2.85 million in October.”
That’s a nearly 30% decline in only two months. And it comes at the time that Trump needs it the most. While Elon Musk has reinstated Trump’s suspended account on Twitter, Trump insists that he will not be going back to the site. If that’s true (doubtful), he would be forsaking his 80 million Twitter followers for the four million glassy-eyed disciples he has on Truth Social. That’s a pretty bad trade off, and one that hurts both Trump and Musk.
From the day Truth Social was launched it was mired in the sort of mayhem that can only be produced by incompetence. It repeatedly crashed. Users couldn’t log in. Fake accounts were rampant. It’s being criminally investigated by the SEC and a Grand Jury in New York. And financially, the shell company it partnered with suffered an 75% decline in stock value over the past eight months. Its investors are backing out.
So while Musk is doing his darnedest to destroy Twitter, his competition at Truth Social for the white nationalist and disinformation demographic is simultaneously sinking into an abyss of failure. Which is typical for a Trump business, just as it is for Trump’s political endeavors. The horrendous record for the candidates that he endorsed during the midterm election is evidence of his waning influence. And post-midterm polls show that the American people don’t even want him to run again.
Truth Social’s woes are nothing new. The site has been a sink hole from day one. Here a few of the pot holes it has encountered on the way to its demise…
