New York, United States — The President of the United States, Donal Trump, has decided to join the rival of TikTok, Triller.

Triller is a New-York based rival of China’s famous app TikTok. The President has earned 11,000 followers just after two days on the social-media app.

Mr Trump has already published four Triller videos with the first being a video where he claiming that he is a “professional at technology”, amassing 6.1 million views.

In the rest of his videos, he shows his gratitude towards “Boaters for Trump” and references his election opponent, Joe Biden.

Mr Trump is planning to follow suit unless Twitter  sells the app’s US version and has signed executive orders targeting both it and another Chinese social-media app, Tencent’s WeChat. TikTok was banned in India almost two months ago.

The United States and India both fear that the data collected by TikTok could be given to the Chinese government. However, TikTok strongly denies it and says that none of their international users’ data is stored in China.

Although TikTok was launched in 2016, a year later than Triller, it is estimated to have been downloaded over two billion times, compared with its US rival’s 250 million.
