Marjorie Taylor Greene held Trump stock. Now that it’s tanking, she won’t say what happened to it.

A media company with ties to former President Donald Trump is off to a rocky start with share prices tanking and the company’s value diminishing by the day. 

Rep. Marjorie Taylor Greene, R-Ga., doesn’t seem eager to discuss the struggling business, years after she purchased shares in a company that helped Trump’s business go public on the Nasdaq.

Asked by CNBC and NBC News, Greene wouldn’t say what happened to her stock in Digital World Acquisition Corp., which, through a merger with Trump Media and Technology Group, recently started publicly trading as DJT. The share price is down at least 45% month to date.

Greene bought shares of DWAC on Oct. 22, 2021, just days after the merger announcement, in an amount ranging from $15,000 to $50,000, according to her official congressional financial disclosure filings. The DWAC stock opened up trading that day at $118.80 and finished around $67.

Bucshon bought DWAC stock on Oct. 25, 2021, for anywhere between $1,000 and $15,000, according to a financial disclosure. DWAC’s stock closed the day at around $83.
