After shaking hands with the former president of the United States, the social media star told him that she just ‘had to say hi' and that it was ‘so nice to meet you.'

The clip of Addison's run-in with Trump, once uploaded to NELK's YouTube channel, went viral across multiple social media platforms.

It drew mixed reactions from the TikTok superstar's devout fanbase, with a few fans speculating about her political affiliation – a topic that was first brought up and shutdown by the star early in her career.

Back in 2019, Addison clarified in the comment section of one of her TikTok videos that she was ‘not registered and never have been registered before' to vote in her home state of Louisiana, after a TikTok went viral claiming she ‘had allegedly voted Republican in 2014, 2016 and 2018 in Tarzana, California,' as per PopBuzz.

‘This isn't real hahahaha. First I'm from Louisiana, second I'm not even registered to vote and never have been I'm actually doing it for the first time with someone important and I'm excited to do so. This is fake,' she wrote at the time.

‘why would she want to say hi?? It ain’t adding up,' read one critical tweet, who suggested that Addison's support of the Black Lives Matter movement and other social justice movements contradicts her apparent desire to meet Trump during Saturday's fight.

Another shocked fan condemned ‘all these people trying to defend [Addison] when that man [Trump] is an evil person that she does not need to be associated with ??

‘like why the f**k would she want to introduce herself if she didn’t like who he is,' the tweet concluded.

One Twitter user described the clip as ‘disgusting' and that they were put off by Addison ‘casually saying hi and fangirling over a racist piece of sh**' 

Coming to Addison's defense, one fan asked those angered by the clip to explain exactly ‘what is wrong with' her introducing herself to Trump, adding: ‘You kids need to grow up and realize folks can agree to disagree and still show respect.'

Reiterating the same stance, another Twitter user wrote that they ‘dont like trump but seeing a former president in front of ur eyes hell imma say hi too wtf.'

‘I love Addison Rae now,' tweeted out one Twitter user, seemingly impressed with Addison's conduct.

Others moved past the outrage and, instead, wondered just how Addison was able to seemingly make it past Trump's team of secret service agents.

‘How does a random person just walk walk up and touch a person with secret service protection?' read one concerned tweet, with another writing: ‘Is nobody surprised how she casually just scrolled up on the former president and tapped his shoulder where the secret service at?'

Addison has yet to address the her now viral Trump interaction, but she has continued to post on social media as usual, with her most recent post being a series of backyard portraits.
