Biden’s MASSIVE U-turn on Chinese-owned social platform

55

The Biden campaign’s decision to join TikTok has raised some eyebrows, especially since they banned the platform on federal devices due to security concerns. It seems like a case of “do as I say, not as I do.”

That’s because:

2022: Biden signs Tik Tok ban

2023: Biden campaign won’t join Tik Tok

2024: Biden campaign joins Tik Tok after stating not to join Tik Tok

The Biden campaign’s move to use TikTok for their 2024 campaign efforts has sparked some controversy. It’s like they’re saying, “We know it’s a security risk, but we’re going to use it anyway because it’s where the cool kids hang out.”

The Biden administration last year threatened to ban TikTok if the app’s Chinese owners do not sell their stakes in the company, according to the video-sharing app. The platform is owned by a Chinese company so there are deep concerns about security. The Biden administration had previously called TikTok a national security threat and banned federal employees from using it on government-owned devices.

Nonetheless, Biden made his first TikTok post on Super Bowl Sunday in a video titled “lol hey guys” under the username @bidenhq. It is as banal as you would imagine and he keeps doing that grandpa squat that looks like he’s adjusting his underwear.

Campaign officials justified the policy reversal as a political necessity, saying, “The campaign will continue meeting voters where they are.”
