After trying to put down TikTok, Trump installs Triller.
Trump endorses Triller and launched his account last Saturday, according to the NYT Reporter, Taylor Lorenz. The Triller app is an app that was released in 2015, which also noticeably has the same features as TikTok.
It was reported that Trump’s first Triller post is a mini-campaign ad that features him. It features the US President saying, “I’m a professional at technology” and “Nobody can do it like me. Nobody can do it like me, honestly.”
Trump Endorses Triller Reports
The reported video runs only for 15 seconds, which now has 1,142,524 plays and one of the few three verified accounts. Trump has now reached 5,000 Trillers, which also be the lowest followers for a Triller verified account.
Aside from Trump, you can also find some notable influencers and people in business who registered on the platform. They are namely Joe Biden, Charli D’Amelio, Chance the Rapper, and Bryce Hall.
Trump Officially Bans Chinese-App TikTok In The U.S.
The popular Chinese app TikTok is officially banned in the country for 45 days. As first said on Fox News, Trump administration reiterated that the app poses a threat to the national security of the country, which forces the Federal committee to remove its access to all Americans.
According to the order, “The spread [of apps controlled by the Chinese government] continues to threaten the national security, foreign policy, and economy of the United States.”
“The United States must take aggressive action against the owners of TikTok to protect our national security,” they added.
It was no longer surprising that Trump immediately signed the said E.O document. After all, POTUS has been a strong suit against the usage of the Chinese app.
“This data threatens to allow the Chinese Communist Party (CCP) access to Americans’ personal and proprietary information – potentially allowing China to track the locations of Federal employees and contractors, build dossiers of personal information and blackmail, and conduct corporate espionage,” added on the long E.O. document.
TikTok Is Fighting Back Against Trump’s Executive Order
TikTok was appalled to the sudden declaration of Trump’s administration that leads them to threaten and fight back against them with a legal challenge. The company commented that they were “shocked” by Trump’s orders.
TikTok’s commented, “We are shocked by the recent Executive Order, which was issued without any due process. For nearly a year, we have sought to engage with the US government in good faith to provide a constructive solution to the concerns that have been expressed. What we encountered instead was that the Administration paid no attention to facts, dictated terms of an agreement without going through standard legal processes, and tried to insert itself into negotiations between private businesses.”
