The first video that the former president uploaded to the Chinese social network was uploaded late in the night of Saturday, June 2, making it available to users. During a mixed martial arts fight, we notice him there.

On TikTok, Donald Trump is shown. On the evening of Saturday, June 1, and continuing through Sunday, June 2, the former president, who was just recently found guilty, uploaded his first video. Before the match, we meet the Republican candidate, who is a supporter of Donald Trump and the head of the Ultimate Fighting Championship (UFC), which is the largest mixed martial arts (MMA) league in the world. The phrase “it’s my honor” is heard being spoken by Trump preceding a series of sequences in which he is seen shaking hands with members of the public or taking photographs with them.

The video has already been viewed more than 45 million times in a span of time that is less than twenty-four hours. The number of subscribers on the account is already close to three million.

A complete about-face: in the year 2020, Donald Trump, who was serving as president at the time, advocated for the prohibition of the social network. To be more specific, he requested that the parent firm, ByteDance, resell the application even though doing so would result in the application being prohibited on American soil. During that time period, he was unsuccessful in his efforts because the justices had reversed his decree.

It is TikTok that Trump favors above Facebook.

Donald Trump had already changed his mind and positioned himself against a ban on TikTok by the time March rolled around, so taking the opposite opinion from Joe Biden with regard to the matter.

Then, during an interview with the CNBC channel, he disclosed, “What displeases me is that without TikTok, you will make Facebook grow, which for me is an enemy of the people, in the same way that other media is,” according to what he said.

During this interim period, a bill was approved by Congress, and Joe Biden was the one to sign it. When it comes to matters of national security, this document gives TikTok a deadline of nine months to cut all financial relations with China.

If it fails to do so, the company will be banned from operating on American land. An announcement has already been made by the application that it intends to pursue legal action challenging this statute. This is a case that has the potential to be heard by the Supreme Court.

In the meanwhile, it is not inconsequential if Donald Trump appears on the network with short videos: Joe Biden’s campaign staff launched an account for the Super Bowl game, despite the possibility that they would be banned in the future. On TikTok, the fight for the right of young people in the United States to vote can now continue.–Prix/10676411
