APPRENTICE/SOCIAL MEDIA: “Donald Trump is suing two co-founders of Trump Media, claiming they should lose their shares of the company for mismanaging his social media site.

The men, Wes Moss and Andy Litinsky, had already filed a suit against Mr Trump in February to prevent him from reducing their 8.6% stake in the firm.

They pitched the idea of Truth Social following the Capitol riot, after Mr Trump was banned from Twitter, now X.

Their shares are currently valued at around $600m (£477m).

Both co-founders met Mr Trump as contestants on NBC’s The Apprentice reality show.”
