In a Monday security filing, Digital World Acquisition Corp. (DWAC), which was formed to merge with the parent company of former President Trump’s social media platform Truth Social, expressed concern that a decline in Mr. Trump’s popularity could harm the business.

In a filing with the Securities and Exchange Commission, DWAC stated that the success of Truth Social is dependent on Mr. Trump’s “reputation and popularity,” as the chairman of Trump Media and Technology Group (TMTG), which owns and operates the social media platform.

“In order to be successful, TMTG will need millions of those people to register and regularly use TMTG’s platform,” the filing reads. “If President Trump becomes less popular or there are further controversies that damage his credibility or the desire of people to use a platform associated with him … [the merger] could be adversely affected.”
