President Joe Biden’s 2024 campaign has made its debut on TikTok, the popular social media platform. This decision comes despite Biden’s prior statements that TikTok poses potential national security risks.
While President Biden himself is not expected to join the platform, his campaign says it aims to leverage TikTok’s reach by connecting with a diverse range of voters in an increasingly fragmented digital landscape.
National security risks
In 2022, the Biden administration banned the app on all federal devices used by the federal government’s nearly 4 million employees.
According to an AP report, the campaign’s account will be managed solely by the campaign team. And the campaign claims there will be no involvement of administration officials.
