US President Donald Trump has threatened to ban TikTok. According to him, various measures against the application are being considered,
“We are studying TikTok. We can ban TikTok. We can do some other things. There are a couple of options. Let’s see what happens,” the American leader said.
U.S. Secretary of State Mike Pompeo previously announced plans to ban TikTok in the United States. According to him, Washington is really thinking about restrictions on the installation of Chinese applications but has not made any concrete decisions yet. ” (You can install TikTok) if you are not embarrassed that personal data will end up in the hands of the Chinese Communist Party,” Pompeo said.
The TikTok app was launched in 2017, and its developer is the Chinese company ByteDance. The app is mainly used by teenagers and young children.
