He has agreed to be the CEO of a newly established Trump media organization, Trump Media & Technology Group.

Trump created the social media platform and app called “TRUTH Social,” in order to “stand up to the tyranny of Big Tech.”
The app appears to be the first project of the Trump Media and Technology Group (TMTG), which will list on the Nasdaq through a merger with Digital World Acquisition Group, according to an announcement tweeted out by spokeswoman Liz Harrington. The transaction values TMTG at up to $1.7 billion, Harrington said.
