(RepublicanWire.org) – President Joe Biden has yet to officially announce that he will be running for reelection next year but his team is already drawing up battle plans for an imminent 2024 campaign and is planning to field an army of TikTok and social media influencers to entice young voters to turn out for the octogenarian leader.
The unpopular President is going to need to energize younger Gen Z voters to reinforce demographic groups that are already solidly loyal to the Democratic Party if he is to beat back a challenge from the resurgent former President Donald J. Trump and his pro-America base which Democrats will need to do if they hope to retain control over the White House.
According to Axios, Biden “will lean on hundreds of social media ‘influencers’ who will tout Biden’s record — and soon may have their own briefing room at the White House.” The news comes as lawmakers are looking for ways to ban the Chinese-owned social media platform that is immensely popular with young people who are addicted to it.
“We’re trying to reach young people, but also moms who use different platforms to get information and climate activists and people whose main way of getting information is digital,” said Deputy White House Chief of Staff Jen O’Malley Dillon.
Among the influencers who have been recruited for the coming propaganda campaign is 20-year-old NYU student Henry Sisson whose TikTok where he shills for Democrats has over 600,000 followers.
“What Republicans don’t understand about Gen Z is that we’re here to stay and that we’re only getting more powerful,” Sisson says in one video posted to Twitter. “In 2020, President Biden won because of young voters. In 2022, Democrats expanded their majority in the Senate because of young voters. In 2023, Wisconsin now has a liberal Supreme Court because of young voters and we’re gonna do it again in 2024 and that should terrify the Republican Party.”
“We actually asked the White House, ‘When are we going to get press briefing passes?’” Sisson told Axios. “They were actually were very responsive to it.”
Team Biden has previously used social media for outreach to young people although with mixed results, one example being the much-ridiculed campaign featuring Instagram influencer Benito Skinner aka Benny Drama who played a GenZ White House intern with gender confusion issues.
The news comes as Manhattan District Attorney Alvin Bragg’s malicious prosecution of the 2024 GOP frontrunner appears to have backfired by energizing Trump’s base and the regime looks to offset the former president’s momentum with TikTok being the path to winning hearts and minds.
Axios notes that Trump is dominant on social media platforms YouTube and Facebook with the regime turning to Instagram and TikTok which are preferred by the younger voters who are inexperienced and easier to bamboozle than more informed social media users
