Trump says he will ban TikTok from the US

Aug 01, 2020 12:18 IST

US president Donald Trump said that he will ban TikTok, the popular video app from the country as American authorities have raised concerns that it could be used by Chinese intelligence. Trump said that he would take action to that effect as soon as August 1 using emergency economic power or an executive order. His remarks come after some media reports claimed that Microsoft is in talks to buy the Bytedance-owned teenage sensation. Trump said that he does not support the deal.
