In 2020, at the end of his term in the White House, Donald Trump unsuccessfully tried to force TikTok off the top app stores and have its Chinese parent company divest its ownership.

He must be glad now that those efforts were challenged in court and dropped by the Biden administration. The former president joined TikTok on Saturday and has quickly garnered 5.2m followers, blowing past the Biden campaign’s roughly 357,000 followers.

In a statement to The Independent, a Trump campaign spokesperson defended the choice to join the app, which Mr Trump has previously warned comes with national security concerns for its ties to China.

“We will leave no front undefended and this represents the continued outreach to a younger audience consuming pro-Trump and anti-Biden content,” spokesperson Steven Cheung said.
