President Biden’s re-election campaign has joined forces with TikTok in an effort to attract young voters after the administration banned the Chinese-owned app from federal devices over security concerns.

On Sunday, the Biden campaign announced that they went on stage with a video of the president answering Super Bowl questions during the game.

The campaign made the move after reports emerged late last year that they were going into the app. However, a campaign spokesperson slammed the move at the time.

BIDEN did not remember when he was Vice President, “When his son BEAU died, during special interviews with advisers.

It also came after the Biden administration banned the app due to security concerns. Last February, the administration set a 30-day deadline for government agencies to purge the app from federal devices.

The social media platform, which is owned by the Chinese company ByteDance, is very popular among young Americans. Biden has previously teamed up with TikTok influencers amid his re-election race, and the Democratic National Committee has also joined the platform.

The president’s move to join the Beijing-based social media platform could present unprecedented security risks. In particular, the Chinese Communist Party’s cybersecurity law allows government authorities to access company data.

Many Republicans are opposed to using TikTok due to data security concerns, while a growing number of Democrats have embraced the platform.

Sen. Tom Cotton, R-Ark., has railed against TikTok, saying last month that it should be “banned” and that the CEO is “lying” about the app being safe. for Americans.

“The evidence that China is using TikTok to monitor and influence American citizens is clear, and it’s only increasing as time goes on,” wrote Sen. Marco Rubio, R- Fla., in a previous edition of Fox News Digital.

“Furthermore, Beijing’s influence over ByteDance, TikTok’s parent company, is undeniable,” he said. “Not only does Chinese law compel ByteDance to hand over data immediately, but it owns the Chinese government also in the main domestic subsidiary of the technology giant.”
