It’s been reported that Donald Trump has made just $200 from Truth Social since leaving the White House in 2021.

The former president’s personal financial disclosure reports with the Federal Election Commission offers the public the first look at his earnings and financial state in the years since his term as president ended.

The social media platform was launched early in 2022. At one time it rose to the top of Apple’s App store, but it was met with teething problems as downloaders were given a waitlist number and faced a delay before they could post.

It comes after Trump became the first former president in US history to face criminal charges.
