President Joe Biden has joined TikTok to appeal to younger generations.

Despite there currently being a ban on the video sharing app being downloaded onto government-owned devices, following fears about how their parent company, ByteDance — which is based in China — handles their data, as part of his bid to remain in office, Biden has started using the platform to attract voters.

“The campaign will continue meeting voters where they are, innovating to create content that will resonate with critical audiences and the core constituencies that make up the president’s diverse and broad coalition of voters,” his advisers said.

Considering its stance on the app, they insist they are “taking advanced safety precautions around our devices and incorporating a sophisticated security protocol to ensure security.” Biden has amassed 112.9k followers

Biden won’t be running the account, as just like the world leader’s X, Threads, Facebook, and Truth Social accounts, they will be run by the campaign staff.

When Biden joined Threads in November, he said times are “challenging” for the U.S .and the world but said he sees a positive future ahead.

“Folks, it’s President Biden. You’re hearing from me today from a new platform, but my message to you hasn’t changed: Right now, we face an inflection point — one of those challenging moments in history where the decisions we make today will determine decades to come. But I don’t see a dark, dismal, divided future for America. I see an America about to take off. I’ll continue doing everything in my power to meet this moment — and keep you posted along the way,” he wrote.
