Stocks connected to former President Donald Trump are heading higher on Friday following news of his indictment.

Both Digital World Acquisition (NASDAQ:DWAC) and Rumble (NASDAQ:RUM) stocks are climbing higher today on the news. This comes as both companies see heavy trading volume today as investors bet on the businesses with the indictment news.

The thought process here is that Trump’s indictment will result in a boost in business for Truth Social — which is set to merge with Digital World — as well as Rumble. Both social media platforms appeal to conservative userbases. That means they may see more activity as those users collect together and talk about the news.

In addition to this, Rumble released its earnings report for the fourth quarter of 2022 after markets closed yesterday. Investors are celebrating those earnings with revenue coming in well above expectations.
