On March 26, 2024, Trump Media & Technology Group (Ticker: DJT) debuted on the Nasdaq exchange, climbing over 30% in its first two days of trading. This gave the company a valuation of $9.4 billion, greatly increasing Donald Trump’s net worth.

To put this increase into perspective, we’ve visualized the past 10 years of Trump’s wealth as measured by Forbes.

It’s safe to say that going forward, Trump’s net worth will be largely influenced by the value of his stake in Trump Media & Technology Group (TMTG). SEC filings have revealed that the former president has a stake of at least 58.1% in the company.

What is Trump Media & Technology Group?

TMTG is a media company founded in 2021 by Trump, debuting on the Nasdaq as a public company after merging with Digital World Acquisition Corp, a special-purpose acquisition company (SPAC).

Also known as “blank check companies”, SPACs are shell corporations listed on a stock exchange that acquire a private company with the purpose of making it public (without going through an IPO).

TMTG released its X (formerly Twitter) competitor, Truth Social, in Feb 2022. According to estimates from SimilarWeb, the platform had around 5 million monthly users as of Feb 2024.

DJT Slips After Reporting Weak Financials

After its hot debut on the Nasdaq, DJT shares have stumbled, falling by more than 20% on April 1. This is due to recent disclosures which revealed that the company lost over $58 million in 2023.

Revenue in 2023 was $4.1 million, which is higher than the $1.5 million generated in 2022.

How Debt-to-GDP Ratios Have Changed Since 2000

This was originally posted on our Voronoi app. Download the app for free on Apple or Android and discover incredible data-driven charts from a variety of trusted sources.

Government debt levels have grown in most parts of the world since the 2008 financial crisis, and even more so after the COVID-19 pandemic.

To gain perspective on this long-term trend, we’ve visualized the debt-to-GDP ratios of advanced economies, as of 2000 and 2024 (estimated). All figures were sourced from the IMF’s World Economic Outlook.

Data and Highlights

The data we used to create this graphic is listed in the table below. “Government gross debt” consists of all liabilities that require payment(s) of interest and/or principal in the future.

The debt-to-GDP ratio indicates how much a country owes compared to the size of its economy, reflecting its ability to manage and repay debts. Percentage point (pp) changes shown above indicate the increase or decrease of these ratios.

Countries with the Biggest Increases

Japan (+116 pp), Singapore (+86 pp), and the U.S. (+71 pp) have grown their debt as a percentage of GDP the most since the year 2000.

All three of these countries have stable, well-developed economies, so it’s unlikely that any of them will default on their growing debts. With that said, higher government debt leads to increased interest payments, which in turn can diminish available funds for future government budgets.

This is a rising issue in the U.S., where annual interest payments on the national debt have surpassed $1 trillion for the first time ever.

Only 3 Countries Saw Declines

Among this list of advanced economies, Belgium (-2.8 pp), Iceland (-21.2 pp), and Israel (-20.6 pp) were the only countries that decreased their debt-to-GDP ratio since the year 2000.

According to Fitch Ratings, Iceland’s debt ratio has decreased due to strong GDP growth and the use of its cash deposits to pay down upcoming maturities.
