Former President Donald Trump reportedly walked away from his new blog because few people were reading it and many people were mocking it.

Trump on Wednesday shut down the blog he launched less than one month earlier to share statements with supporters, and The Washington Post reports he ordered his team to put the webpage "out of its misery" after being upset by reports that it was drawing few readers. The former president reportedly had "concerns that it could detract from" a social media platform he hopes to launch this year.
