Donald Trump’s Social Media Venture Skyrockets in Wall Street Debut

Donald Trump Social Media Success Wall Street Debut

The stock of the social media company previously associated with Donald Trump experienced a significant surge of up to 59 percent on its first day of trading on Wall Street.

This surge is expected to greatly benefit the former president financially, which is particularly important considering his increasing legal expenses.

The Trump Media & Technology Group experienced a significant increase in its share price on Tuesday, reaching a peak of $79.38 per share. By the end of the day, the share price closed 16 percent higher at $57.99, resulting in a market capitalisation of approximately $8 billion for the company.

Despite incurring operating losses of $10.6m for the first nine months of 2023, Trump Media had a successful market debut following its merger with shell company Digital World Acquisition.

Trump created the social media platform Truth Social in response to being banned from popular platforms like Facebook and Twitter, following the events of the January 6 insurrection at the US Capitol.

The Republican contender for the 2024 US presidential election has chosen to stick with Truth Social, despite being reinstated to both platforms.

Trump currently holds a majority ownership stake of approximately 60 percent in the company, which is currently valued at around $4.6 billion.

“I have a strong affinity for Truth Social, I truly appreciate the concept of truth!” Trump shared on the social media network on Tuesday.

Trump, who is currently dealing with four criminal trials while running for re-election against US President Joe Biden in November, has been facing challenges in raising funds for his campaign and covering his legal expenses.

Trump is currently dealing with a significant bond payment following a ruling by a New York court. The court found that he, his sons, and their family business had been dishonest about the value of his assets for an extended period of time.

In a recent development, a New York appeals court has made a decision to reduce the bond payment from $454m to $175m. Additionally, they have granted a 10-day extension for the payment, which the individual in question, Trump, has confirmed he will fulfill.

There was a concern that the initial sum could lead to the potential seizure of Trump’s assets by New York authorities.
