President Donald Trump has inspired a TikTok dance trend and it’s not the first time he has become a meme material.
Trump has been holding rallies these days after he got cured of the coronavirus and he is dancing in these rallies to show that he is healthy and fit to win an election again.
Users quickly took his dancing video and started dueting with it. Most of the TikTok creators are trying to imitate him and just show how ridiculous his moves are. Even though it’s a bit funny, I have to say he’s got some moves.
he has been dancing to the “YMCA” song in Florida and other rallies he has conducted. If this is the path he chooses, that’ his choice but some people are definitely not so thrilled with dance. The reason why some people are not a fan of this dance is that they expect a president to condemn white supremacist not encourage them as he dances to YMCA.
Trump TikTok Dance Explained
Donald Trump’s TikTok dance can be his new tactic and a political weapon. How can a dance be political? Well, he was diagnosed with coronavirus and it was the ultimate irony because he had downplayed the virus for months.
He was admitted to the hospital and then discharged from there. Immediately, he had to show the American public that coronavirus was in fact not so dangerous. So, he went out to rallies and started dancing. He even made a speech saying his son got a coronavirus but it was all over in seconds.
It might seem like an innocent dance but it also has a political purpose- to downplay the virus and still say it’s not as dangerous as you think. Immediately people took that dancing clip and started to feature in their TikTok video.
