A 26-year-old TikTok user who went viral after she shared a video of herself dancing alongside footage of President TrumpDonald John TrumpMinnesota certifies Biden victory Trump tells allies he plans to pardon Michael Flynn: report Republican John James concedes in Michigan Senate race MORE at a campaign rally has said that she was actually jabbing the president over his moves. 

Julia Keith told BuzzFeed News that the video, which has received over 99,000 likes and over 10,000 shares, was intended to joke about how the president "dances like how a lot of white people in America dance."

"I was just making people laugh — I don't want to be a MAGA icon," Keith told the outlet, referencing Trump's 2016 campaign slogan "Make America Great Again."


"I thought the dance was hilarious, it was the ultimate white dad type of dance moves," she continued. "I’d been dancing my whole life. I did classical ballet for 15 years and I got up to try to do his dance and I was stumped. It took me an hour.”

The TikTok user explained that she did not have “real political motives” for posting the video. However, supporters of the president flocked to the clip on the popular video app and left comments lauding the president and his reelection campaign.
