Trump Media & Technology Group is urging the Securities and Exchange Commission to wrap up its probe of the company's merger with Digital World Acquisition Corp., which plans on taking the company public.

Former President Donald Trump's media company also touted the success of Truth Social, which was launched earlier this year.

"Truth Social is continuing to grow rapidly, driven by extraordinary user engagement and the recent launch of ads on the platform," Trump Media & Technology Group told Just the News, less than a month after calling allegations of financial troubles on the social media platform "knowingly false bar talk."

The company said it will "continue cooperating with all stakeholders in connection with its planned merger, and hopes the SEC staff will expeditiously conclude its review free from political interference."

Trump media and Digital World have been issued multiple subpoenas from the Securities and Exchange Commission as part of a probe into the merger.
