Trump Media adds former Devin Nunes aides, Donald Jr. and ‘Apprentice’ contestant as officers.

Devin Nunes, the former Republican congressman from California who now heads the social media start-up backed by former President Donald J. Trump, has brought in two former aides as officers in the company.

The roles for the two former aides, Kashyap Patel and Scott Glabe, were reported by Trump Media & Technology Group in a corporate filing last week in Florida. Mr. Patel was listed as a director of the year-old company and Mr. Gable as its general counsel.

The filing also lists Mr. Trump’s eldest son, Donald Trump Jr., as a director, along with Wes Moss, a financial adviser and a contestant on Mr. Trump’s old reality TV show, “The Apprentice.” Mr. Moss and another former “Apprentice” contestant had pitched Mr. Trump on the idea of a conservative media company, The New York Times reported last year.

Mr. Nunes, who was one of Mr. Trump’s most loyal allies in Congress, stepped down from his seat in January to become chief executive of Trump Media. Mr. Patel, known as Kash, worked for the National Security Council during the Trump administration after serving as a senior adviser to Mr. Nunes. Mr. Glabe, another former top member of Mr. Nunes’s staff, also worked in Trump administration.

Mr. Nunes did not respond to requests for comment.

The filing lists a Sarasota, Fla., business address for Trump Media, which also has registered to operate in Georgia and still lists Mr. Trump’s club at Mar-a-Lago in Palm Beach, Fla., as its main corporate office. The filing was first reported by The Sarasota Herald Tribune.

Trump Media’s flagship app, Truth Social, has struggled since its launch this year, and the company’s merger with Digital World Acquisition, a special purpose acquisition company, has been dogged by an investigation by securities regulators.

With Elon Musk planning a takeover attempt at Twitter, Truth Social also has to contend with the possibility of a leadership change atop one of its market’s dominant companies. Shares of Digital World have fallen sharply since Mr. Musk’s bid and were trading 14 percent lower at midday on Monday.
