>It turns out a company with $4 million in revenue and $58 million in losses might not be worth $8 billion, after all.

https://www.thedailybeast.com/trump-loses-dollar1-billion-as-his-media-companys-stock-plunges

Trump Media’s inexplicable ascent came crashing down on Monday, as shares of the social media firm plunged more than 21 percent, knocking roughly $ 1 billion off former President Donald Trump’s net worth.

Despite the precipitous drop, his 57 percent stake in the business is still worth over $3 billion.

The firm, which began trading last month after merging with a public shell company, has benefited from so-called “meme stock” investors who have driven up its share price despite its abysmal financial performance. In 2023, the company generated revenues of just $4.1 million and posted a loss of $58.2 million, according to public filings.

Even after Monday’s crash, the company is still worth over $6 billion on paper. Trump, who faces hundreds of millions of dollars in legal judgments, can’t yet sell his shares, due to a six-month lock-up provision for key company insiders.

Trump Media’s main product is Truth Social, a rival to X, the Elon Musk-owned platform formerly known as Twitter.

Republican presidential candidate and former U.S. President Donald Trump.

Donald Trump migrated to Truth Social after he was booted from Twitter over what the company called “the risk of further incitement of violence” following the Jan. 6, 2021 attack on the U.S. Capitol. Truth Social has had more than 9 million sign-ups since its inception, the company said in its filings, though it cautioned that its operations are not exactly sophisticated.

“Investors should be aware that since its inception, TMTG has not relied on any specific key performance metric to make business or operating decisions. Consequently, it has not been maintaining internal controls and procedures for periodically collecting such information, if any,” the filings said.
>>
Former Republican Congressman Devin Nunes serves as Trump Media’s CEO. The firm got a cash infusion of more than $300 million as part of its deal to go public. Without that money, it may have gone out of business, the filings acknowledged.

It remains to be seen whether Trump Media can maintain its lofty share price long enough for the former president to cash in. According to The New York Times, Trump Media is currently the most shorted stock on Wall Street.

>implying the only reason you retards think he's in cahoots with the Russians is because he wanted to discuss things like an adult with Putin rather than throwing childish insults at him
That's the entirety of this nonsense in a nutshell, really. Once the "left" has decided it doesn't like you, you are 100% evil, bad and must be destroyed and anyone who doesn't fall in with this retardation is on the side of the person being targeted for destruction.
>Next you'll say something like "No that 's what YOU want because... because you're the one that does all the bad things!!!!!!
>>
>>1283846
Russia was spreading pro-trump propaganda during his run for office, and then Trump sucked him off publically at every opportunity. Trump may not have been involved directly, but you;d be a retard to completely ignore that possibility. doesnt help that his close allies did have direct ties to / contact with Russians
>>
>>1283849
But Putin didn't invade Ukraine until Biden gave him the green light to attack and destroy evidence of his corruption.
>>
>>1283850
>Republican cope
So why are Republicans siding with Russia against Ukraine while Biden is helping the Ukrainians?
>>
>>1283853
He's simply appealing to his base, NAFO trannies, now that the evidence has been destroyed.
>>
>>1283866
>Being this butthurt that Putin and Trump are getting BTFO by Ukraine.
>>
>>1283853
Why does Biden care about the Ukrainians?
>>
>>1283870
Point is, there was no Ukraine war until Biden was president.
Explain the collusion there.
>>
>>1283872
That's because Putin was banking on Trump getting re-elected and sabotaging NATO. When that didn't happen, Putin jumped the gun and it blew up in his face.
Notice how only Trump is trying force Ukraine to surrender their territory to Putin?
>>
>>1283853
Republicans are not siding with Russia against Ukraine.
>>
>>1283891
So let me get this straight, Putin's plan was to have Trump sabotage NATO to weaken European defense so he could invade Ukraine.
That plan didn't happen so he just invaded Ukraine?
Something seems off there pal. Especially since Trump was complaining about Nordstream and Eurotrash relying on Russian oil. Which Biden then blew up a few years later.
Your story doesn't hold water.
It's more likely corrupt Biden rigged the election, to take control of the presidency and allowed Putin to attack Ukraine to destroy evidence of his and other Democrat politician's corruption.
Now that makes sense.
>>
>>1283899
>That plan didn't happen so he just invaded Ukraine?
Biden got elected and he was going to strengthen NATO. Your schizo forced meme that Biden is on Putin's side isn't believed by anyone who isn't a shill like you.
Especially when Trump said he'd cut off Ukraine and give Putin everything he wants.
>>
>>1283901
>Was going to strengthen NATO
By crippling Europe by destroying their supply lines via blowing up Nordstream?
>>
>>1283901
At this point why shouldn't he? Are you planning to go fight in Ukraine yourself? It's not like they're going to win, and the US dumping more taxpayer money into it while our infrastructure collapses is retarded. Without full NATO intervention, and without US taxpayer money, Ukraine is going to lose. So unless you plan on joining the military, please shut the fuck up.

I don't give a fuck about Porkraine and and I don't give a shit about Russia. I care about the US and this country is struggling when it shouldn't.
The only think you people give a damn about is being contrarian about Russia because Trump said he'd be diplomatic with Putin. You've been seething about that ever since, just because ORANGE MAN BAD said it.
>>
>>1283907
Get in the golf cart

I don't recognize this meme. Something from Reddit or Bunkerchan?

Notice the chud's struggle to identify and categorize the meme he doesn't recognize with those of perceived political enemies.

It's an /x/ meme. He's saying you should be sacrificed under a golf course to appease Satan.

Okay Vatnik.

They're currently fighting the Russians to stalemate without full US support because the Republicans betrayed the western alliance to Russian.
Ukraine had the upper hand with full US support.
Any real American should vote for the Democratic party and remove the Republican traitors from office to defeat the Russian scourge.

>Diplomacy
Trump outright said he'd betray Ukraine to the Russians by cutting off all funds and also force them into an unfavorable 'peace' deal that would effectively let Russian win.
No more Russian puppets like Trump.

>They're currently fighting the Russians to stalemate without full US support because the Republicans betrayed the western alliance to Russian.
Can we take a moment to stop and recognize that you retards are using the same retarded rhetoric that was used to justify war in the middle east?

Why the fuck should anybody care about Ukraine, and why should I care what Russia does to anybody else?
>>
>>1284043
giving ukraine surplus gear so they don't get raped and genocided is an objectively good thing

Because our oppressive eurofascist allies might be in danger causing them to grow testicles and reform their shitty fucking countries.

The twitter files revealed that the CIA and FBI were astroturfing for a war in Russia since 2018.

Why would Twitter do such a thing?
What a faggot you and Business Insider are.

SHOCKING

Musk? That was the Jack era you're complaining about. Are you like a retard or something?

you're the one complaining though

Yes, idiot.
I literally said that the events of the Twitter files happened halfway through his presidency.

To be entirely fair, that Anon is right, but not for any reasons related to Trump. Russia and China are the geopolitical enemies of all things Western and should be eliminated from the face of the Earth so that the rest of us can collectively live better lives. Simple as.
>>
What I'm not at all surprised by is the complete and utter implosion of the debate into shitflinging and calling everyone who doesn't toe the line a "Vatnik Sympathizer."
My other favorite point was the idiot who brought up that China is the enemy of the west, oh but except when Trump was trying to address China for four years straight. Orange Man Bad, that had to go. The US will never put up a united front ever again. It's population is completely divided and both sides will never cooperate with one another ever again. China and Russia will not have a fire a shot. They just have to wait for this place to dissolve into barbarism.
>>

I think it's funny that the Biden admin has named a trad orthodox regime the enemy of democracy.

No, and that Jew-loving, gun control-passing, crypto-Democrat can go fuck himself in the same shit-filled pit where you belong.

No, Evangelicals are theocratic and a threat to America's seperation between church and state like the Alabama Republican Supreme Court proved. However Trump and Russia are fascists.
Also interesting how you use another canned Russian response.

The hate speech laws, the anti-bds laws, the book bans etc aren't meant to benefit Christians anon.
