Donald Trump Fumes After Receiving Bad News

by Jessica

Donald Trump has launched a fierce defense of his social media platform Truth Social, lashing out after its value plummeted this week amid revelations of mounting losses and doubts over its long-term viability.

Taking to the embattled platform itself, Newsweek reported on Thursday, April 4, that the former president unleashed a torrent of defiant rhetoric, accusing his “competitors, especially those in the Radical Left Democrats Party,” of using their “vaunted ‘disinformation machine'” to downplay Truth Social’s significance and reach.

Trump’s outcry comes in the wake of a regulatory filing to the Securities and Exchange Commission (SEC) that painted a grim financial picture for Truth Social’s parent company, Trump Media & Technology Group (TMTG).

The filing revealed that TMTG generated a mere $4.1 million in revenue during its last operating year while racking up a staggering $58.2 million in costs and an operating loss of nearly $16 million.

Remarkably, the auditor tasked with reviewing TMTG’s finances, BF Borgers of Colorado, expressed “substantial doubt” about the company’s ability to continue operating under the weight of such staggering losses.

Undeterred by these ominous signs, Trump doubled down on his support for Truth Social, boasting that the platform is “very solid” with over $200 million in cash reserves and zero debt.

He hailed Truth Social as “AMAZING!” and proclaimed it the “primary way I get the word out.”

In a grandiose display of self-aggrandizement, Trump claimed that “people want to hear what I have to say, perhaps, according to experts, more than anyone else in the World.”

He even credited Truth Social with propelling him to the Republican presidential nomination in “record time,” asserting that politicians he endorses on the platform “almost ALWAYS WIN.”

Trump’s defiant stance comes as little surprise to those familiar with his uncompromising rhetoric and unwavering belief in his own infallibility.

However, the stark financial realities facing Truth Social and TMTG pose a significant challenge to the former president’s bravado.

As Todd Landman, a political science professor at the University of Nottingham, astutely observed, Truth Social’s potential success hinges on its ability to attract a far larger user base and diversify its business model.

Drawing parallels with tech giants like Amazon and Facebook, Landman noted that these companies only achieved profitability after substantially expanding their user bases and leveraging diverse revenue streams.

For now, Truth Social remains a niche platform with a relatively small active user base of around 500,000, dwarfed by the behemoths of social media.

As the financial pressures mount and Trump’s credibility as a tech entrepreneur faces increasing scrutiny, his ability to rally support and sustain the platform’s momentum will be put to the ultimate test.

Regardless of the outcome, Trump’s combative response to the bad news surrounding Truth Social serves as a reminder of his unwavering determination and his willingness to fight against any narrative that challenges his carefully cultivated image of success.
