Trump’s Truth Social Soars in Wall Street Debut as He Resorts to Selling Bibles: Live

Donald Trump appears in a New York court for a hearing in the hush money case

Donald Trump’s Trump Media & Technology Group, the parent company behind his Truth Social platform, made its Wall Street debut on Tuesday. Its shares began trading on the Nasdaq Stock Exchange under the ticker symbol “DJT” and were priced at $78.

Its value fluctuated throughout the day, then stabilized at around $70 and ended at $57.99 when the closing bell sounded.

Trading that day meant Mr Trump joined the ranks of the world’s 500 richest people, with his controlling stake in the company now worth $5.5bn (£4.3bn), his estimated net worth increased to over $8 billion.

The effort couldn’t be more timely as the Republican presidential candidate’s numerous legal battles continue to drain his capital, so much so that he has resorted to selling Bibles in time for Easter as a stopgap measure.

Elsewhere, Mr. Trump was hit with another gag order in his hush-money criminal trial, which is scheduled to begin jury selection on April 15. Judge Juan Merchan granted Manhattan District Attorney Alvin Bragg’s request barring the former president from discussing people involved in the case or their families.

Trump claims he’s not running to repeal Obamacare in typo-filled Truth Social rant

Look out Joe “BUDEN,” someone wants to make America “GREST” again.

Here is Donald Trump’s latest Truth Social rant:

I’m not running to repeal the ACA as corrupt Joe Buden constantly misinforms and misinforms, I’m running to close the border, stop inflation, make our economy great, strengthen our military and the ACA or Obamacare to strengthen. What they call it: MUCH BETTER, STRONGER AND MUCH CHEAPER. IN OTHER WORDS: Make the ACA much, much, much better for our greatest American citizens who have been decimated by Biden, his record inflation, the poor economy, the Afghanistan disaster, and pretty much everything else, and for far less money ( or costs). Crooked Joe Biden is by far the worst president in the history of the United States! MAGA2024

And here’s the Biden campaign’s response: “A weak and confused Trump publishes a typo-riddled rant in which he misspells ‘Biden,’ ‘misinformed,’ ‘misinformed,’ and other basic words.”
