The last time I discussed the controversial special purpose acquisition company Digital World Acquisition Corp. (NASDAQ:DWAC), its shares were up 57% on a year-to-date (YTD) basis. Since then, DWAC stock had its dips and dives, but it is still up 6o% YTD.

For me, I find the answer alarmingly simple. As a powerful and charismatic figure, former President Donald Trump has found the perfect emotional catalyst to corral intense and unprecedented electoral support. Rather than persuade the conservative base to merely wrestle with so-called grievance culture, he has given them the blueprint to turn the narrative on its head.

Grievance Culture and its Inverse

According to, a “grievance culture exists when significant numbers of people claim victim status and assign the blame to someone or some group they don’t like. Social media and the twenty four hour news cycle have provided the organizational mechanism and public forum for individuals to join together in a public display of outrage.”

Updates to show Nunes announced late last month that the the TRUTH Social app would launch by the end of Q1. 

Trump SPAC Digital World Acquisition Corp. (NASDAQ:DWAC) pared earlier gains and is now negative as traders circulated a report from Friday that Trump's social media platform is being delayed until the end of March.

Trump Media and Technology CEO Devin Nunes announced on Thursday that TRUTH Social app will officially launch at the end of March, according to a Washington Examiner report from Friday. TRUTH Social was originally scheduled to start on Feb. 21. 

"It's very difficult," Nunes said during a Thursday appearance on Newsmax, according to the Washington Examiner report. "We cannot use any of the Big Tech companies. We've seen what has happened to other small startup companies. And when Amazon decides they don't like them, they cut them off."
