Chants of "USA!" rang out before founder, chairman, and CEO Michael Seifert rang the legendary opening bell, signaling the beginning of a new chapter for the patriotic online marketplace.
Members of the PublicSq team, including Donald Trump Jr, stood on the balcony overlooking the trading floor as supporters cheered them on. Before long, chants of "USA!" filled the air, only stopping for Seifert to ring the bell.
While the atmosphere in the NYSE was electric, not everyone was enthusiastic about it. CNBC analyst Jim Cramer recoiled while having his broadcast drowned out by the patriotic chant. He and his co-host attempted to continue speaking, but even shouting couldn't overpower the sounds of the crowd.
"You can tell Jim Cramer isn't used to hearing USA chants on the NYSE floor," Seifert said on Twitter. "I am so proud of our @officialpsq team and everything we've accomplished over the last year. The largest network of non-woke businesses in America is officially public."
Founded in January of 2021 with the goal of creating a marketplace for companies with patriotic values, Public Sq now hosts 55,000 businesses and over a million active consumers.
"Clearly there's this very large, unaddressed market in the United States that feels like, in the era of sort of woke or progressive corporatism, they're not being talked to," Seifert said during an interview with Fox Business. "In fact, in many cases, they're being actively ignored or antagonized."
This is a breaking story and will be updated.
