Trump To Ban TikTok
President Donald Trump says he intends to ban the operation of TikTok in the U.S.
Trump said Friday he could take action as soon as Saturday to stop the operation of the popular video-sharing social media app in the U.S.
“As far as TikTok is concerned, we’re banning them from the United States,” he told reporters traveling with him Friday from Florida.
He said he would likely use an executive order to prohibit the app.
Trump does not support a deal that would allow a U.S. company to buy TikTok’s American operations.
The app is extremely popular in both the U.S. and around the world.
