The President of the United States has signed up to social service Triller, which competes with TikTok. The first to draw attention to Donald Trump’s account was The New York Times journalist Taylor Lorenz.
About 3,500 people have subscribed to the account of the head of the United States, and the first video was viewed more than 1.1 million times. The video is a cut of several photos of Trump.

The US president opened a Triller profile amid serious criticism of the Chinese social service TikTok from the US government. The country’s leadership believes that the developer of TikTok, ByteDance, transfers personal data of users to the Chinese government. Trump issued an ultimatum: either TikTok will be sold to any American company by November 12, or the service will stop working in the United States. ByteDance is still thinking.
