President Trump’s new website “from the desk of Donald J. Trump” recently crashed after he released a statement regarding the current audit in Maricopa County.
Reports show that after President Trump posted a statement that stated “the entire database of Maricopa County in Arizona has been deleted” his website reportedly crashed for about an hour but has since been restored.
As of right now the reason why the website crashed is unclear and the Trump campaign have not spoken about it.
I don’t want to jump the gun on this one but so far this looks like it was either a cyber attack against President Trump or it could be as simple as an IT malfunction due to the high level of traffic that visited his site after he made his bombshell statement.
Let’s hope it was the latter, Trump has been censored enough, the last thing we need is for hackers to try to censor him.

The Daily Mail covered the story, see what details they added:
President Donald Trump’s new website ‘From the Desk of…’ crashed on Saturday evening after he shared a claim on his site that the Arizona election result had been rigged by voter fraud.
The site was down for at least an hour before service was restored.
Conservative news website The Gateway Pundit reported that From the Desk of Donald Trump crashed shortly after the former president issued a statement claiming Arizona’s election results were fraudulent
It is unclear why Trump’s website crashed and whether the site was hacked. So far no statement has emerged on whether it was attacked, or went down because of an IT malfunction.
Before the website’s crash, Trump had asserted the entire Maricopa County ballot database has been deleted before alleging massive fraud in the form of ‘broken seals on boxes, ballots missing, and worse.’
Here is what many users saw when they tried to access the site:

The Gateway Pundit broke the story see what they had to share:
The From the Desk of Donald J. Trump webpage where the former president has been posting statements was down on Saturday after he asserted that the entire Maricopa County ballot database has been deleted.
His statement also alleged massive fraud in the form of “broken seals on boxes, ballots missing, and worse.”
It is currently unclear if the website being down was due to an attack or just an overloaded server from all the traffic attempting to go to it. His main website was still functioning, but attempting to go to the page where he posts statements was generating an error message.
Here’s Trump’s full statement regarding election fraud in Arizona.
So it was either hackers trying to stop Trump from getting this message out or too many tried to access the site at once causing it to crash.
What do you think happened?
