President Trump on Friday said he plans to ban the social media platform TikTok from operating in the United States.
“As far as TikTok is concerned, we’re banning them from the United States,” Trump told reporters aboard Air Force One. Trump went on to say it could happen as early as tomorrow (Saturday).
The president said he could use emergency economic powers or an executive order to officially bar the Chinese-owned company from the U.S. He signaled he was not supportive of allowing an American company to acquire TikTok. Microsoft Corporation was rumored to be in talks to buy with the services of Tik Tok.
