Trump imitates Drudge with new election website

Donald Trump’s campaign rolled out a new election website on Monday which bore a strong resemblance to the Drudge Report, a decades-old online hub for conservative news.

The website,, imitated Drudge’s bare-bones design, only featuring text and images.

Here’s a side-by-side comparison:

Above the fold on its debut day was a banner story linking to an article about Hillary Clinton’s comments on supporters of Sen. Bernie Sanders.

Below the banner was a series of links mixed with photos featuring pro-Trump headlines the campaign was highlighting.

“Pence Trumps Kaine On The Economy,” read one headline.

“Where Does Kaine Stand On Abortion When He Accepts Their Campaign Cash?” asked another.

At the very bottom of the page was a disclaimer noting the website was funded by Trump’s campaign.

Trump has been an outspoken fan of the Drudge Report, often citing the website’s online polls favourable to him at rallies and calling its founder, Matt Drudge, a “great guy.”
