“Our people have all left Drudge. He is a confused MESS, has no clue what happened,” Trump tweeted Monday. “Down 51%. @DRUDGE  They like REVOLVER and others!”

It was unclear what the 51 percent figure referenced, but on Sunday Trump tweeted a blog post claiming traffic to The Drudge Report had declined 40 percent.


While Drudge was a major figure in the development of the online conservative media ecosystem, Trump and his allies have been increasingly critical of him.

Revolver, the outlet Trump mentioned, is one of several more vocally pro-Trump Drudge alternatives that have appeared in recent months. The president retweeted Rep.

Trump also lashed out after Drudge highlighted the president’s denial of having been hospitalized for “mini-strokes.” On Sunday, Trump tweeted that the blogger was “bleeding profusely, and is no longer 'hot'.”
