As we approach the 2024 election, the battleground has shifted to social media, and President Trump is not one to shy away from a fight.

Despite his earlier concerns about Chinese influence and spying on American citizens, Trump has joined the popular social media platform TikTok. His rival, Joe Biden, has also entered the fray, but Trump quickly surpassed Biden in followers in just one day.

According to the numbers, Trump’s video on TikTok received over 2.2 million likes and 38 million views, while his account gained 2.1 million followers since its launch. This is more than six times the number of followers on Biden’s account, which has been active for five months. The president wasted no time in leveraging this platform to reach a younger audience and continue his outreach to his supporters.

But that was not the only blow for Biden on social media. His team’s attempt to shame Trump with years-old allegations of racial slurs on his show “The Apprentice” was quickly shut down. The comments on this post showed just how tired Americans are of Biden’s failed leadership and pointed to his own controversial past statements, such as calling poor kids just as smart as white kids.

While Trump has faced criticism for joining this platform and promoting it, it is clear that he is wise to take advantage of it in his efforts to defeat Biden. This is not about cat videos or transgender activists, as some may claim. It’s about reaching and engaging with a large audience in a way that resonates with them.

As Trump’s campaign spokesperson, Steven Cheung, put it, “We will leave no front undaunted.” And what better place to launch this fight than at the recent UFC event, where Trump received a hero’s welcome and thousands of fans cheered him on.

The battleground is now on social media, and Trump is leading the charge. It’s time for Americans to join him and support a leader who continues to put America first. As we have seen time and time again, what we see on social media or in polls does not always translate to reality on Election Day. But one thing is for sure, the support and enthusiasm for Trump and his message are undeniable.
