According to the international news agency, the US president has announced that he will approve an administrative order, after which Tiktok will be banned in the United States.
U.S. officials have claimed that Tiktok is owned by a Chinese company ByteDance and it may use Americans’ personal information. Tiktok has denied US allegations that the application is run by Chinese authorities or the Chinese government has access to its user data.
It should be noted that Tiktok is an increasingly popular application in the United States as well as in the rest of the world and the number of its users has exceeded 80 million in America.
Microsoft and Chinese company ByteDance are reportedly in talks to buy Tiktok, but Trump is unlikely to allow such a deal. According to reports, in case of such a deal, the Chinese company ByteDance will withdraw from the operation of the application in the United States.
