TikTok users banded together to try and boost Joe Biden‘s town hall ratings over President Donald Trump‘s event last night.

The presidential candidates were due to debate at the same event until Trump’s COVID-19 diagnosis days after the first debate threw a spanner in the works. The Commission on Presidential Debates planned for the second debate to go ahead virtually, but Trump refused and said he would only debate in person.

Biden decided to go ahead with the scheduled a town hall-style event on ABC. But Trump then decided to host his own event on NBC at the same time, meaning that viewers would have to choose to watch one or the other.https://94042c8b1562bd7a8e4361f0cc3829b4.safeframe.googlesyndication.com/safeframe/1-0-37/html/container.html

Trump is obsessed with ratings—even bragging about the number of viewers his daily coronavirus briefings drew—so his town hall event’s ratings and how they compare to Biden’s are likely to be important to the president.NEWSWEEK SUBSCRIPTION OFFERS >READ MORE

Though Trump did not mention ratings, on Friday the president said on Twitter: “Very good reviews on last night’s NBC News Town Hall in Miami. Thank you!!!”
