Former President Donald Trump has asked a Florida federal judge to force Twitter to reinstate his account after he was banned for inciting the deadly Jan. 6 insurrection. The twice-impeached one-term president also fairly recently asked a Florida judge to issue a preliminary injunction in his case against YouTube that would compel the company to reinstate his access to the video-sharing platform. Trump argued that his bans hamper his ability to fundraise, among other things. According to a report from Axios, there is an explanation for why “attention-starved” Trump is desperate to get his accounts back.

“Trump has tried press releases styled as tweets, launched his own “platform” and held campaign-style rallies, yet the numbers suggest his social media megaphone has no true replacement,” the outlet reports.

The public isn’t interested in content about Trump anymore.


“Clicks to Trump content dropped 37% in August and September compared to the two months prior, according to the data. It measures clicks from social media posts referred from SocialFlow’s network of publishers,” the report continues. “The decline marked a 50% dip compared to March — the first month Trump free-fell from the news after February’s impeachment trial.”

The outlet explains that the decrease “is partly explained by the fact that Trump is being written about less — there were 26% fewer stories during the last two months, compared to March and April, according to exclusive data supplied to Axios by NewsWhip.”

“But interest in those Trump stories also is going down,” the report adds. “Per article, they are averaging 28% less engagement on social media in August and September, the data shows.”

The former president had well over 88 million followers on Twitter, and now he unleashes statements through his spokesperson Liz Harrington to circumvent his Twitter ban. Harrington has over 200,000 followers, a number that pales in comparison to Trump’s following. Still, Trump uses his statements to continue pushing his big lie of widespread voter fraud that doesn’t exist after losing the election to Joe Biden in the electoral and popular vote over eleven months ago. And that lie led to the insurrection, and Trump’s role in the insurrection led to his ban on social media. He will never learn because a narcissist thinks they know e-v-e-r-y-t-h-i-n-g.

Was the crisis in Afghanistan surrounding the pull out of American Troops Biden's fault or Trump's fault?
