Shareholders of Digital World Acquisition Corporation (DWAC) voted to approve a merger with Trump Media & Technology Group (TMTG) on Friday, potentially netting billions of dollars to former President Donald Trump, Axios reported.

The vote to approve the merger with TMTG, the parent company of Truth Social, could give Trump almost 79 million shares of stock in the entity, worth over $3 billion, The Hill reported. Former Republican Rep. Devin Nunes of California will serve as CEO of TMTG, according to Axios. (RELATED: Trump Sees ‘No Reason’ To Return To Twitter Following Reinstatement)

While Trump is barred from selling shares for six months, he could receive a waiver to sell from the board, Axios reported.


The merger comes as Trump faces a Monday deadline to post an appeals bond of over $450 million to cover the judgment in a civil fraud case issued by New York Judge Arthur Engoron.

Trump announced he would start the social media company in October 2021, months after being banned from Twitter and other social media sites in the wake of the January 6, 2021, riot at the Capitol building.

Twitter reinstated Trump in November 2022 following an online poll by Elon Musk, who completed the acquisition of the social media site in October of that year.

The Trump Media and Technology Group did not immediately respond to a request for comment from the Daily Caller News Foundation.
