Dates on Trump File reflect when something happens, not when it's first reported.

The Washington Post reports that Trump will return to doing rallies across the U.S. and launch a new project called Trump Media Group in an attempt to regain media attention he’s lost since leaving office.

Trump Media Group might include his own social media platform, but details of the project are under wraps. It’s expected to launch this summer.

News of TMG and upcoming rallies comes as posts on Trump’s “platform” — a blog promoted as a home for free speech — fail to spark the media or the internet’s interest.

Online talk about him has plunged to a five-year low. He’s banned or ignored on pretty much every major social media venue. In the last week, Trump’s website — including his new blog, fundraising page and online storefront ­— attracted fewer estimated visitors than the pet-adoption service Petfinder and the recipe site Delish… Social engagement around Trump — a measure of likes, reactions, comments or shares on content about him across Facebook, Twitter, Reddit and Pinterest — has nosedived 95 percent since January, to its lowest level since 2016.

Sources tell the Post that Trump is also open to joining a conservative social network (like Gab or Parler) if he’s promised enough money and control of the platform.
