No DJT Trades: Greene, an ardent backer of Republican Presidential candidate Donald Trump, incidentally did not do any new transaction in Trump Media & Technology Group Corp. DJT, the former president’s media company that came public in late March following its merger with SPAC Digital World Acquisition.

The stock is down about 16% since its public debut.

When Digital World Acquisition announced its decision with Trump Media & Technology Group in 2021, Green was the first Congress member to invest in the SPAC. She then reported that she along with her then-husband Perry Greene bought $15,001-$50,000 worth of the SPAC’s shares

Greene hasn’t disclosed any sale of the stock since then.

The stock market has been on a tear this year despite the headwinds. The SPDR S&P 500 ETF Trust SPY, an ETF that tracks the broader S&P 500 Index, rose 0.34% to $506.74, in premarket trading, according to Benzinga Pro data. It has gained over 6.5% so far this year.
