Donald Trump has joined the video app TikTok, which he tried to ban while in the White House, at a time when he has been found guilty on 34 counts of hush money payments to Stormy Daniels ahead of the 2016 US presidential election.

New York (USA). Donald Trump, the front-runner for the Republican Party’s presidential nomination in the US, has joined the popular video app ‘TikTok’, which he had tried to ban while he was in the White House. He has joined TikTok at a time when he has been found guilty under 34 charges of tampering with records in the case of secretly paying money to porn star Stormy Daniels before the 2016 presidential election in the US. With this, he became the first former US president to be convicted of a serious crime. Trump said in a video on TikTok, “It’s an honor.”

In this video, he was seen greeting fans and taking selfies at the ‘Ultimate Fighting Championship’ match in New Jersey on Saturday night. By Sunday morning, Trump had gathered more than 11 lakh followers on this social media platform and his posts were liked by more than 10 lakh people and 2.4 crore people saw them. Trump’s spokesperson Steven Cheung said in a statement about his joining TikTok, “We will not give up our presence on any front and this is an effort to continuously reach the young audience watching pro-Trump and anti-Biden content.

President Joe Biden signed a bill in April that could ban TikTok in the US. However, his election campaign got involved with TikTok in February and has tried to work with influencers. TikTok is owned by Beijing-based company Bytedance. About 17 crore people use it in the US, most of whom are young. Trump tried to ban TikTok while he was president, saying that the spread of mobile apps developed and owned by Chinese companies in the US was a threat to national security. The courts blocked his move after TikTok sued.
