Posted By TheNewsCommenter: From Rt.com: “‘Best gift he can give the Dems’: #GenZ trending after Trump announces TikTok ban, sending Twitter into overdrive”. Below is an excerpt from the article.

Trump announced his decision to ban the popular Chinese video-sharing app in the US while talking to reporters on board Air Force One on Friday. 

The Trump administration has previously hinted that it was mulling the ban, with the US president repeatedly voicing alarm about TikTok and other Chinese entities harvesting American data. However, it was unclear if he would go through with the move until the very last moment in light of reports earlier on Friday that Microsoft was eyeing to buy the video app from Chinese firm ByteDance.

The decision has therefore sent shockwaves across Twitter, with online pundits predicting huge blowback for Trump from incensed teenagers – the principal users of the platform which is especially popular with young people.

As the hashtag #GenZ shot to the top of Twitter's trends, some suggested the move might even cost him reelection in November.
