The former president and the anti-LGBTQ-account owner took a photo together at his Florida country club.

Ahead of the news that Meta would restore Donald Trump's Instagram and Facebook pages, the twice-impeached, disgraced former president met with the far-right troll that runs the anti-LGBTQ+ hate account Libs of TikTok.

Chaya Raichik posted a photo of herself with Trump to her personal Twitter account and then retweeted it on her Libs of TikTok account with the comment, "Cry more, libs."

According to her original tweet, the two dined together at Mar-a-Lago.

"Bumped into this guy and he invited me for dinner. He seems nice!" she wrote.

"I asked him if his first tweet back can be retweeting this," she followed up.

Raichik has been on a media blitz and right-wing influencer tour in recent weeks ever since she revealed her face publicly on Fox Nation's Tucker Carlson Today in December.

While establishing her hate-fueled account, which has more than 1.8 million followers, Raichik had gone to great lengths to remain as anonymous as possible, managing to keep her image a secret.

In December, she told Carlson why she was now putting a face to the hate.

"I feel like, over the past few months, I've done so much. I've helped educate people. I know that I've helped create legislation to tackle some of these issues. I think I've done all I can, and I'm ready for the next step," Raichik said.

Since unmasking herself, the far-right activist has reveled in the spotlight her acolytes in right-wing media have afforded her. Raichik has used the additional exposure to spread her anti-LGBTQ+ views.

The same day she met with the former president, Raichik, who claims to want to protect children from sexual predators, appeared on the Slightly Offensive podcast with right-wing YouTuber Elijah Schaffer, Media Matters reports.

Schaffer was fired from The Blaze in 2022 after allegations of sexual assault were leveled against him.

Responding to a question about why she posts the videos she does, Raichik positioned herself as acting in the service to protect children somehow by targeting LGBTQ+ people.

"I strongly believe that a lot of these people are suffering from mental illness or other issues, emotional issues, and they really do need help, and I hope they get the help," Raichik said.

"We have a serious mental health crisis in our country, and it's not being addressed like it should be, and ... we have this massive activist group who target children to recruit them, and that is a massive problem," she said.

Raichik has spent the last year demonizing LGBTQ+ people, particularly teachers and doctors, and accused them of abusing children by turning them trans.

After she spread disinformation about children's hospitals across the country, several began receiving bomb threats.

LGBTQ+ advocates say that Raichik's focus on LGBTQ+ Pride events, drag shows, and drag queen story hour events have inspired violent far-right radicals like Patriot Front and the Proud Boys to target those events.

The right-wing influencer's appearance with the former president comes as Meta is expected to reinstate Trump's Instagram and Facebook accounts in the coming weeks. He had been suspended from those platforms for two years because of his rhetoric surrounding the violent insurrection on January 6, 2021.

Trump, who announced his candidacy for president in 2024 in November, also recently met with white nationalist Nick Fuentes at his resort.
