What did Claudia do in light of the announcement…she made a TikTok.The video was captioned: “Me making my mom leave the White House to take down the administration and save America.”
In October, Claudia nearly broke the internet when she exposed her mother’s COVID-19 diagnosis after President Trump came down with the illness, which her mother attempted to keep private in fear of backlash.
